MTVKreayshawn 384x540 MTV Video Music Awards: Kreayshawn, Nicki Minaj, Adele, Etc.

The MTV Music Awards last night fashion-wise didn’t do much for me so I only have a few celebs here: Kreayshawn (who is currently working a nude pic scandal), Nicki Minaj, Lady Gaga posing as a cast member of “Jersey Shore,” Amber Rose, Katy Perry, Skylar Grey and Adele. In Adele’s photo, check the nude, talon mani. Though for a young woman of 23 she her outfit was a tad matronly, no? Whatever, you know how some days you feel so cynical and can’t stand a thing about celebrities? In fact the opposite? Well I am having one of those days. Enjoy the glitter and don’t mind me glowering in the corner.

Video: Kanye West’s ‘Monster’

06 June 2011, 19.50 | Posted in Music, celebrity | 1 comment »
After much delay, the official video for Kanye West’s “Monster” has arrived. Already it’s been roundly attacked for its brutal portrayal of women–a debate for the ages no doubt. Kanye as a black man is definitely playing with some serious taboos, though the hanging white women in the video bring to mind that famous black and white photo of Thomas Shipp and Abram Smith being lyched in front of a mob of white men and women who watched or participated in the event. Many years ago, it’s true, but the question of where and who exactly the monster is remains an intriguing question.

Did Nicki change stylists? We like the cleaner looks she’s been sporting lately. Her overly-crazy wig game was becoming a distraction.

You’ll see on the next page that her top is actually a vest layered over a black bra.

The Billboard Music Awards took place last night in Las Vegas, and some of our style faves were there, including Beyonce, Rihanna and Nicki Minaj. Here is fascinating shot of Rihanna with Jay Z, a pair whose exact relationship has always had an air of mystery to it, like, hmmm….

Nicki Minaj Interviewed By Vogue Wearing Alex Wang!

Nicki Minaj performed at a environmental charity event held by auction house Christie’s last night (which, Minaj informs us via Tweet, she was asked to do so by by Anna Wintour herself), and on the red carpet was interviewed by Vogue. Here is the response to her outfit question:

What are you wearing tonight? Is it one of your favorite designers?
Yes, it is—it’s Alexander Wang. It’s all black, of course, and I knew I needed to get my green on, so that’s how I came up with the green-and-white hair. I have a lot of designers I like right now; I really like Donatella Versace. She sent me a few beautiful things recently to consider wearing to the Grammys and, even though I ended up wearing Givenchy,  I believe in supporting women. I’m all about the girl power.

Which is cute because Alexander Wang stated in a recent interview that Minaj is an artist he’s listening to a lot lately (“I’m really into Nicki [Minaj] right now, of course, who isn’t?”), so…..together at last!

See a few more images, plus her response to her makeup essentials on the next page. And on another note, first Lady Gaga, then Rihanna, now Nicki?? What the heck is going on at Vogue or maybe more accurately with Wintour??

Nicki Minaj For Black Book Magazine

Minaj7 Nicki Minaj For Black Book Magazine

Nicki Minaj is on the cover of Black Book magazine, as photographed byAndrew MacPherson and styled by Brett Bailey. This is my favorite shoot of hers yet, largely because it lines up from a taste perspective with my personal preferences. And I’ve been concerned that Minaj has painted herself into a bit of a teeny bopper corner with her candy-colored wigs and wardrobe so it reassures me a bit to see her easily make the pivot to something more mature/sophisticated in this editorial–all for selfish reasons, would like to see Ms. Minaj around for a long, long time to come and think she needs to slowly head in this direction if she’s planning on longevity. See the rest of the shoot on the next page.

MelodyEhsaniNickiMinaj Nicki Minaj Wears Custom Melody Ehsani Ring

Thanks to it being the kick off of couture runway last week, we were posting a lot of items via the fashion world’s best funded, but that doesn’t mean we ever forget our women, whose talent we see as just as big and meaningful and soulful. Case in point, accessory designer Melody Ehsani, whose custom three-finger ring was worn by Nick Minaj during her publicity tour in London last week. (Check out Minaj’s on-it taupe manicure, too!) We have one question, Mel, what’s the ring say??
