Nicki Minaj Reminisces on Some of her Favorite Looks, From ‘Pink Friday’ Cover to 2023 ‘Vogue’ Cover

Nicki Minaj has never shied away from a bold fashion look, and the superstar rapper reminisced on some of her best-known looks from throughout the years with Vogue on Thursday (Dec. 7).

The clip kicked off with the bubblegum pink-toned cover for her 2010 album, Pink Friday. “This is one of the most important shoots I’ve ever done,” Minaj shared. “What we were going for in this shoot was trying to make me look like a big Barbie doll. Once I saw the photo, I loved it, but I wanted the dress to be more poofy. […] They were like, ‘OK, let’s just draw on the extra lace behind you.’ We did it, and that’s the beauty of some of the best photoshoots, is that you don’t know what the heck you’re going to get and then you leave with something more gorgeous, beautiful and iconic.”

She then went through a number of other beloved looks, including various Fashion Week outfits, Met Gala styles, her Barbie film premiere look and her multiple Vogue covers. She also touched on her upcoming Pink Friday 2 cover. “Well, this made me light up,” she shared, noting that she’s wearing Vetements. “I just loved that it didn’t have to show any skin. I just loved that sometimes women are the most confident when they’re completely covered up.”

Minaj is just a day away from finally unveiling her highly anticipated fifth studio album, Pink Friday 2 on Dec. 8. “If you on my $h!t list, you will never EVER recover. The. Fkng. End,” she wrote to fans about the project last month.

Pink Friday 2 is the follow-up to Minaj’s 2018 album, Queen, which peaked at No. 2 on both the all-genre Billboard 200 albums chart and Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart upon its release. The upcoming album’s predecessor, 2010’s Pink Friday, topped the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart for six weeks and the Billboard 200 for one week.
