As Nicki Minaj turns 38 on Dec. 8, she’s celebrating her birthday as a first time mom after welcoming her first child — a baby boy –  with husband Kenneth Petty on Sept. 30, 2020. The COVID-19 pandemic shut down many event red carpets in 2020, so fans were deprived of seeing what pregnant Nicki would have rocked to some events. But we’ve got her sexiest looks over the years, from her Met Gala one of a kind gowns to her racy Grammys and MTV VMAs outfits.

Nicki always takes bold fashions risks every time she steps out at public events. At the 2019 Met Costume Gala, the “Tusa” rapper donned her favorite color — Barbie pink — and showed off her amazing curves and sexy legs. Her ballerina-inspired Prabal Gurung dress featured a very plunging neckline to showcase her famous decolletage, and a tight bodice where she flaunted her tiny waist. A thigh-high hemline on her skirt revealed plenty of leg, while a voluminous train added plenty of drama, along with heels that featured straps laced up to her bare thighs.

In 2018, Nicki attended the MTV Video Music Awards, and she looked seriously sexy in a nude-colored bodysuit, which was covered in sheer fabric that formed a skirt and to the floor. The fabric gave the illusion that she was somewhat covered up, but really, her legs and backside were on full display, and she looked FIERCE. At the same event one year earlier, Nicki stepped out onto the red carpet in a pink latex bodysuit. The sexy outfit hugged her curves in all the right ways. Only Nicki could rock such a sexy look and pull it off!

Nicki is all about a sexy sheer look. She’s truly one the celebs who keeps the look so in style. At a 2016 Tidal concert, Nicki wowed in a completely sheer black bodysuit. She had her lady parts covered with pasties and underwear, but that’s all! Obviously, it was a super revealing look, but Nicki oozed confidence as she posed for photos in the ensemble.

But she also made sheer look classy yet sexy at the 2016 VMAs. Nicki wore a floor-length royal blue gown with sheer side panels and cutouts to flaunt her hips and legs. A panel of fabric down the middle covered up her private parts, while the top of the dress featured a wide-open chest with just a few carefully placed straps to keep the garment from having a total wardrobe malfunction. There are plenty of more amazing looks where these came from! Click through the gallery above to check out some of our favorite red carpet looks of Nicki’s over the years!
