Nicki Minaj Wears Four Different Outfits At BET Awards

To state the obvious, last night's BET Awards show was epic. We're still recovering, but we're betting we're not nearly as tired as Nicki Minaj. Besides nabbing the coveted prize for Best Female Hip-Hop Artist and singlehandedly making us dance around our living room during her performance of "Champion" and "Beez In The Trap," the rapper also worked a whopping FOUR looks during the event. Whew! That's got to be a world record or something, right? She kicked things off in a girly way in a sheer black lace top, a ballet-inspired tutu, and black heels onstage for "Champion." Even despite the theatricality of the performance (string orchestra, hellooo!) we couldn't take our eyes off of her awesomely unexpected outfit. Beauty-wise she kept things pretty low-key (no rainbow wigs this time around) with curly long platinum hair and ombre pink tips. Plus, does anyone else feel the urge to run out and buy Barbie pink lipstick?

She stayed in her poofy tutu for approximately one minute before ripping it off to show her lacy black bodysuit. Yeah, we're not really surprised, but we ARE glad to get a better look at her amazing gold cap-toed boots. Also, you can't reasonably expect her to dance around stage with 2 Chainz in a frilly ballerina skirt, can you? No way.

Next up, we were happy to get a glimpse of Nicki taking a much-needed break with Kim Kardashian. She's in yet another all-black outfit, but this time around she's working some MAJOR black platform boots with a black leather scale-covered turtleneck. Chalk it up to the chunky shoes or the strong shoulder, but let's just say the Spice Girls would most definitely approve of this throwback ensemble. Oh, and she's swapped her curly ringlets and neon pink ombre for straight hair- talk about a quick change artist! Seriously, she's making everyone else at the show just look lazy.

When Nicki headed onstage to accept her award for Best Female Hip-Hop Artist, shocker- she changed again. Instead of head-to-toe black, though, the star opted for a yellow tube top, snakeskin print leggings, and a cropped brown leather jacket with cut-out shoulders. Topping it all off were glittery black Christian Louboutin pumps (notice the red sole?) and sleek straight hair.

Clearly Nicki knows how to work it, and she's definitely set the bar high for her next awards show appearance. Of her four different wardrobe switchups, which one gets your vote?!
