Nicki Minaj is taking her look to a different level now that she’s premiered a toned down look for an Elle Magazine spread.
Minaj, usually known for her colorful wigs and bright makeup, is featured in Elle’s Music Issue’ as one of their “Gold Dust Women.”
As previously reported, the issue also features Jennifer Hudson, Aretha Franklin and Willow Smith speaking on their taste in music and own personal style.
In Nicki’s spread she dons jet black liner, a simple black wig and designer pieces, a far cry from what her fans are used to.
Speaking on her style Nicki tells Elle,
“I tend to like booties…[pause] and really flashy shoes; totally studded out, in five colors with an insane platform.”
