Never one to shy away from brights, Nicki Minaj was the perfect candidate to undergo an extreme makeover - swapping her usual hue for sky blue skin - for American Vogue's March issue.
Nicki on her high school sartorial epiphany:
"I was dressing in Tommy Hilfiger baggy shirts and Boss jeans, but then I met a person who dressed like a tiny lady - pantsuits, heels, lots of makeup. I thought she was larger than life. She once did my makeup - I had never seen myself made up before. I didn't want to wash it off; I felt like I had one day to live this fantasy of being a glamour girl."
Nicki on spending $50,000 a month on accessories:
"I bought tons of Vuitton bags. When you're a young girl from Queens, you're going to stock up on those bags."
