Here ye, here ye! Gather 'round, fair BARBZ, for your queen, Nicki Minaj, has arrived on the New York Fashion Week scene, and she has a *very* important declaration for all her loyal subjects: Fear not the '90s steez! Bring forth the acid wash jeans! The crop-tops! The logo-emblazed bling! For they are back with a vengeance and her Minajesty doth approve.
After taking a seat on the front-row throne at Herve Leger's Spring show earlier in the day, Nicki held court at Alexander Wang's after-party last night and the woman ruled the night in a can't-be-missed Chanel-plated chain necklace. #LOGOMANIA Minaj, who was a surprise performer at the Pier 17 blow-out, also wore a black, long-sleeved crop-top by Wang himself, her own high-waisted, slashed-up jeans and some seriously sick leopard-print calf hair and suede ankle boots by Giuseppe Zanotti. Minaj was the perfect embodiment of emerging trends for the Spring 2014 season—Wang debuted his highly-anticipated collection on Saturday and showed '90s street-revival with prominent logo-wear and plenty of pieces that would make Cher Horowitz proud.
