Nicki Minaj has always been on point when it comes to fashion. Before the 2022 MTV VMAs, where she will get the Video Vanguard Award,
look back at her best fashion moments. Nicki Minaj's change in style is worth a moment for life.
The rapper, who has won awards, has always worn designs that are so outlandish that it's hard to think of how she came up with them.
As an example, Nicki wore a crazy outfit to the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards that made people stop and stare. She wore a holographic armoured corset with a
tulle ballerina skirt and leggings in many different colours. The mixed-up stockings were not as wild as the stuffed animals that were attached to the outfit.
Four years later, she again turned heads at the MTV VMAs. This time, she wore a gold, plunging gown with see-through fabric and elaborate lace embroidery.
Even though the gold design wasn't as over-the-top as her outfit from 2011, it was still a good one.
On August 28, the 39-year-old will return to the MTV VMAs with a bang. She will not only get the prestigious Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award,
but she is also expected to perform for the first time since 2018. She is also one of the hosts of the event, along with LL Cool J and Jack Harlow.
But before the "Tusa" rapper walks the red carpet and takes the spotlight at the 2022 MTV VMAs, take a look back at some of her best fashion moments.
