In case you missed it, Nicki Minaj sartorially slayed it at the Billboard Music Awards this weekend while performing “High School” onstage with Lil Wayne. She sported a decked-out gold and black studded motorcycle jacket with badass giant shoulder spikes, ripped leggings, high-heel booties, a gold Chanel logo snapback, and crop top. We fuh-reaked out over this look because it’s SO throwback Nicki with the straight jet black hair, pale pink lipstick and skin-tight leggings. Little did we know, though, Barbs actually had a WHOLE OTHER version of this killer look that she wore earlier that day (!!!), which we peeped in a video she released this morning.
Nicki’s behind-the-scenes “The Road to Billboard” vid features rehearsal footage leading up to her big performance. She spends most of her time hanging with choreographer Laurieann Gibson (in a military hat from her own Kmart collection, nonetheless), and on the day of the show, we see her sporting the SAME jacket from her performance, but in red.
Interestingly enough, she also styled it in the exact same way. She wore another Chanel logo snapback (this time in white and black) and leggings (this time with technicolor animal print) with straight strands (this time in blonde). We’re kind of amazed at how she sported a duplicate outfit (in a different colorway) twice in one day, and, um, this also verifies the fact that we need to know who made this jacket ASAP. It comes in black and red? Consider us officially intrigued. But tell us, which of Nicki’s outfits do you like best? Let us know in the comments below!
