Rihanna is often heralded as the queen of transformations, but Nicki Minaj doesn’t get nearly enough credit. Just look how flawless she looks on her recent Instagram spree with her natural hair, straightened and pulled into a tight ponytail, then subsequently into an elegant tri-bun—pretty sure she just coined that last ’do. (Though, Katy Perry’s Grammys look comes pretty close.)

With Nicki’s ever-changing hair colors and revolving wardrobe of flashy looks—see: her Kmart collection—it’s been a while since we’ve gotten to see what a natural beauty she is. She wears a white T-shirt well. But her low-key look is also leaving us with a few questions, like what was she on set for when she Instagrammed these pics?

The ones of her staring in the mirror at her new ‘do are giving us major pixie-cut Beyonce vibes, and by the looks of the people in the background and the fancy clothes on the rack behind her—that chained vest is DOPE—it looks like Minaj could be shooting a new video. Or maybe it’s for an editorial? Better yet, we hope it’s for the cover of her next album.
