On December 8th, rapper and singer-songwriter Nicki Minaj celebrated her birthday, receiving an outpour of birthday wishes from friends, family, and fans. The beloved artist has made a significant impact on not only the music industry but also the world of fashion. From her iconic hand-stitched metal dress from Amato Couture paired with a ShojonoTomo surgical mask to the head-to-toe leopard Givenchy ensemble paired with a wild wig, Minaj never hesitates to make a statement whenever she makes an appearance at events.
Aside from stunning her audience with elaborate and creative looks, Minaj is also helping to influence young girls that they should freely express themselves through their appearances. Oftentimes, beauty and fashion trends can force people to wear clothes only because they adhere to a specific trend. However, Minaj’s desire to wear unique looks is teaching others that they can step outside of the box with fashion.
