Gallery: Nicki Minaj launches clothing line
After months of anticipation, Nicki Minaj finally officially launched her clothing collection at Kmart in Los Angeles, California.
Never one to make a subtle statement, the 31-year-old rapper opted to arrive in a bubblegum-pink Lamborghini Aventador sports car.
And before heading into the retailer, the Starships singer channelled her inner Charlie’s Angel to pose with the flashy vehicle.
Once the Trinidadian-born entertainer graced the magenta carpet, she proved her fashion line was a clear extension of her own eccentric style by standing in front of a few mannequins that were modelling her pieces.
Putting her voluptuous figure on display, Nicki showed off plenty of cleavage in a plunging cropped blue jacket, as layers of chunky gold Chanel necklaces poked through.
She teamed the tiny blazer with a pair of black high-waisted leggings – both pieces coming from her Nicki Minaj Collection – and topped them off with a gold-chained belt.
And on her feet, the songstress sported a pair of white laced peep-toe Guiseppe Zanotti stiletto booties.
Though her ensemble was a bit risque, Nicki’s hair and make-up were much more tame.
Her long blonde locks were styled straight as her facial features were highlighted with dramatic false lashes, a rosy blush and nude lips.
And completing the star’s look, she rocked a hot pink manicure and layers of metallic bracelets.
Excited for the October 15 launch, Nicki had posted several Instagram shots of her debut ensemble before even arriving at Kmart.
The collection includes a number of mini-dresses – some fitted, some flowing – as well as two-piece spandex suits, bodycon dresses and a range of elaborate patterning.
An array of yellows, blues and pinks make up the colour scheme for Nicki’s autumn collection and there is no doubt she looks flawless in every one of them.
Nicki – who started her career as a singer and rapper – is continuing to solidify her brand and expand her career.
Aside from music, the star has formed part of the American Idol judging panel and even starred in a movie this year, The Other Woman, appearing alongside Cameron Diaz and Kate Upton.
Nicki has also collaborated with MAC make-up to release a limited edition lipstick and has two of her own fragrances distributed by Macy’s and Elizabeth Arden.
The launch of her clothing line for Kmart sees her joining the likes of Selena Gomez, Adam Levine and Sofia Vergara, who have also designed for the retail giant. – Daily Mail
