In honour of the latest ambassadors to join the Mac VIVA Glam squad Nicki Minaj and Ricky Martin where given a pretty cool party this past week. Nicki Minaj in true branding business style had to make an exhibition of herself and she done so in this stripy couture piece.
Compared to recent pictures this was actually rather toned down appearance at the penultimate party at New York Fashion Week. The Viva Glam squad assists the charity by raising funds to donate 100% of profits to the Mac Aids fund which is pretty great news for everyone all around- Mac for brand recognition and awareness and Nicky, whom claimed she had an uncle affected by aids.
Anyhoo, she arrived in a stripy dress jacket combo from the Nanette Lepore Spring 2012 collection sticking to her branding Minaj colours of pink. The dress has an alternating blue and navy colour block stripe-which is certainly eye catching. The collection itself is very bright and over the top, I am not sure if pieces from this season can be worn into the local Sainsbury’s supermarket or even the office without getting a lot of looks from concerning strangers but I guess it is perfect for Nicki.
She mixes the jacket with the dress for a bright combo as well as a Cute Chanel blue bag and some Giuseppe Zanotti colour block blue sandals ($1100)
Her new blonde hair does not excite me- I guess its better than pink but blah for blonde!
