Nicki Minaj Goes Shirtless To Promote Her Newest Fragrance

So, it looks like this whole jacket without a shirt or bra on underneath THING is really happening. We first saw it on Rihanna (then, we saw it again). Then, it was included in Nicki Minaj's Kmart collection promos. And now, the Queen Barb has taken it to the IRL streets of Los Angeles. Nicki wore the latest iteration of this "look" to promote her newest fragrance, Minajesty, on Ellen and posted a lot of pictures to Instagram while wearing it. She calls the collection "boob pics." A very poetic title, indeed.

Never one to be secretive about all the designer goods she wears, Nicki IDed her entire look on Instagram. Her cropped jacket is Moschino, her elastic-waist leather pants are Herve Leger, her gold chain belt is Chanel, and her strappy sandals are Versace. When Nicki debuted a denim version of this look in her Kmart collection, it seemed like something a working woman couldn't actually wear out. In public. But Nicki is proof that a busy lady can leave her house without a shirt or bra, in denim OR in leather. #options In a kinda genius move, she's showing that clothes from Kmart can achieve the same stylistic impact as those from highly revered fashion designers. It's easy if you just, y'know, don't put a shirt on.

Nicki and Rihanna are frandz, so maybe they're giving each another style tips? Maybe they've conspired to start a trend that is only acceptable if you're a pop star? Kmart gave Nicki the go-ahead with her shirtless denim look, so perhaps Kmart wants to see this yet-to-be-officially-named look on the masses. TBH, we're in favor of leaving it to the Nicki Minajs and Rihannas of the world—we'd be a lil' too cold in our office with no shirts on. Yep, that's the only reason.
