The star celebrated her 26th birthday in a special bodysuit by The Blonds!

Since Nicki Minaj loves to keep things interesting on the carpet I’m usually not surprised to see her out and about in an eccentric get-up — although it seems like she tried to outdo herself, opting for an embellished bodysuit by The Blonds while celebrating her 26th birthday at Tao in Las Vegas on Dec. 9. From the countless pearls and crystals, the birthday girl definitely wanted to be the center of attention. “It took a little over 200 hours and 5 people to create this piece, there are about 4000 swarovski crystals all over the bodysuit and as for the pearls, we lost count,” The Blonds said when asked about the glitzy get-up from the “Blond Legends” collection.

While the bodysuit fit the star like a glove, The Blonds said it actually didn’t require multiple fittings. “Typically something like this made to measure would take at least three fittings, but Nicki is petite and the original fit.”

While the get-up wasn’t custom-made specifically for the occasion, the designing duo said they worked closely with Nicki’s stylist to find something that was perfect for the star. “It was important that it would reflect Nicki’s great sense of style, attitude, and of course something that would accentuate her gorgeous figure. The event took place in Las Vegas so there was a little showgirl thrown in.”

Phillipe and David Blond, the masterminds behind the get-up, are favorites of many stars including Rihanna and Katy Perry — but the duo is definitely impressed with Nicki’s sense of style. “She doesn’t choose garments based on trend and we love that she owns everything she wears. We feel she inspires women to feel free to express themselves through fashion. She’s adventurous and all about fun! That makes her a perfect “Blond” and a perfect client,” they said.
