It's been five years since Nicki rocked a hot pink wig and jumpsuit at her first VMA appearance, and WOW has her style evolved since then.
With her gilded, curve-hugging Labourjoisie dress, girly blunt bangs, and winged eyeliner, she's more like Barbie's glamorous older sister now.
Seeing as Nicki is the night's first musical performance (NBD), she didn't get to spend TOO much time in her liquid gold ensemble. But that didn't stop her from striking every pose imaginable, however, flaunting her 360-degree perfection.
Bow to a queen when you see one.
