HAPPY HALLOWEEN! A few days ago, we hooked you up with a full flipbook of celebrity costumes from over the weekend, but the actual day is finally here, and there’s just one star’s All Hallows’ Eve dress that we really want to break down into nitty gritties: Miley Cyrus as Nicki Minaj. It’s a rare and wonderful occurence when one of our favorite celebs masquerades as ANOTHER of our fave stars and one we get majorly amped about (see last year’s Battle of the Halloween J.Los). Naturally, we HAD to take this opportunity to unpack Miley’s Nicki-inspired look.
To the best of our knowledge, Little Miss Cyrus isn’t recreating one specific Minaj outfit (though there are so very many to choose from), but rather an amalgamation of likely wardrobe choices for the “Va Va Voom” emcee. Leopard is a go-to print for the Queen Barb and a look she’s worn more than a few times in recent public history. The same can definitely be said for the healthy helping of gold nameplate necklaces Miley’s rocking in Nicki’s honor. Cyrus takes her beauty cues for the costume from recent Nicki looks, opting for big, BRIGHT YELLOW waves, candy-colored eyeliner and lipstick, and mismatched nails. Also, just barely visible: Miley’s butt pads to recreate Minaj’s — achem — iconic gluts. What do you think of Miley Cyrus’s Nicki Minaj Halloween costume?
