The Barbz have been waiting with bated breath to see what Nicki Minaj, 36, wears to the 2019 Met Gala, and the news is in. The “Barbie Dreams” rapper turned heads in a lavish, fairy-tale inspired gown paired with strappy lace-up heels at the big event. The hit-maker added a little extra flair by accessorizing with massive jewels and wow — she looked incredible.
We already knew Nicki was going to own the carpet this year. Fans will remember that in 2018, she commanded the gala carpet in a striking, red ensemble that perfectly represented the ‘Heavenly Bodies’ theme. The star’s Oscar de la Renta gown featured a plunging neckline, long train and draping cape, which could be described as papal. With a dramatic red headpiece and draping Tiffany & Co. jewels around her neck, Nicki absolutely slayed in the long, extravagant gown. It’s hard to decide which look from Nicki is more iconic!
This year’s Met Gala theme is ‘Camp: Notes on Fashion,’ so it’s no wonder that we’re seeing such extravagant looks hit the carpet. Campy fashion is all about boundary-breaking, exotic looks, and our favorite A-listers are nailing it. The 2019 gala is being co-hosted by none other than Lady Gaga and Harry Styles.
