American rapper, Nicki Minaj has stolen the moment at a Paris Fashion week on Saturday with a breast exposing top which she said was designed by Mugler.
This might not come as a surprise since the 34-year-old Trinidadian-born singer has got her own share of controversies, although when it comes to fashion, Minaj reportedly has a comparatively reserved sense of style compared with some of her older, flashy tactics.
The Anaconda babe shared photos of her looks on Instagram where she mentioned designers behind her entire outfit at Haider Ackermann show.
“Top: Mugler; Shorts: Givenchy; Shoes: Alexandre Vauthier; Pasties: Agent Provocateur; Rings: Pristine; Shades: Veronique Leroy; Styled: Maher; Makeup: Sheika; Hair: Neal.”
Nicki Minaj is notably not the only celebrity who has pulled such media stunt before. It is recalled that Janet Jackson had done the same during the popular American Super Bowl moment with Justin Timberlake. At that time, the controversial moment was reported as a malfunction, when Timberlake snatched off a portion of Jackson’s look but surprisingly rendered her half topless – all under the piercing glint of the stadium lights.
Not only Janet, Minaj’s left breast-baring attire with nipple covered by a metallic, was also compared with that of Lil Kim’s look at the 1999 MTV Video Music Award. Even Kim whose also a renowned Rapper of the 90s, had accused Minaj of copying her image and rap style when she said:
“If you are going to steal my swag, you are going to have to pay. Something has got to give.”
SMH pointed out the fact that an outspoken French feminist, Lou Doillon who once called Nicki Minaj, Beyoncé and Kardashian a “disaster” for women’s rights, was seated (left-hand side) next to Minaj and her exposed breast in the front row.
Still counting, Miley Cyrus had the same bare breast craziness during 2013 Halloween.
The evolution of fashion has turned disastrous with lesser cover-up outfits ranging from swim wears to red carpet gowns. Not many will find such outfits bearable or worthy of emulation but these celebrities have manage to bare it all in the name of Fashion.
