Nicki Minaj Leaks Looks From Her Upcoming Kmart Collection
Just like Barbie, Nicki Minaj has more than a handful of jobs.
When the rap diva isn’t busy judging talent on this season of American Idol or collaborating with Beats by Dr. Dre to create a portable pink pill speaker, the “Super Bass” singer is hard at work putting the finishing touches on her new clothing line, “The Nicki Minaj Collection” with Kmart. Before the collection hits the street, Ms.Minaj dropped a few looks from her line via Twitter to get some feedback from her beloved Barbz.
“Barbz (fans), go to http://shopyourway.com/nicki,” she wrote, “and give ur (your) feedback on everything I’ve posted.”
Following in the footsteps of big-name celebrities like Sofia Vergara and Adam Levine, who have also created collections for the budget-friendly retailer, Minaj’s collection will give fans the opportunity to recreate her look for less.
“It’s very important that I’m not just slapping my name on something,” Minaj said during a press conference in West Hollywood. “It’s important that my fans are going to know that if Nicki is putting it in her line, then Nicki is going to be wearing it. That’s why on Shopyourway.com we are creating catalogs, and I get to see what my fans like, and say, ‘Hey, I like that, too.’ Right now, it’s very real time, it’s very personable.”
From graphic print leggings and a sexy liquid leather bra-top to a skin-tight cobalt blue Herve Leger-inspired bandage dress and a pair of high-waisted jeans, the looks created by Minaj are definitely not for the fashion faint of heart.
“I want to create looks like these [dresses],” Nicki shared. “I have been doing a lot of dresses lately, and I feel more confident when I wear dresses. It doesn’t have to be super over the top sexy. Some of the dresses that I have been doing lately have been completely covered like sweater dresses and my fans have really responded to it. My fans are lik,e ‘Hey Nicki, we want the crazy legging,s’ and stuff like that. But we also want to have things that we can wear whether we are going to work or whatever. I’m really focused on the dresses! I’ve been feeling so romantic and sexy lately.”
