Last night saw the 2013 BET Awards–featuring a host entertainers in a wide variety of looks. Strangely, the prevailing colors of the night were black and white (by far), with attendees largely rejecting Spring palettes and prints in favor of leather and lace and very strappy shoes. Nicki Minaj, Ciara, Janelle Monae, Brandy, Ashanti (!) and way more ahead… More
Topic: Nicki Minaj
Anyone familiar with The Gloss‘ fashion coverage knows our opinion of music awards show red carpets: they are uniformly the worst.
…The thing about last night’s 2013 Billboard Music Awards? They were a different dimension of the worst. Every look was a jumble of ill-conceived ideas and bad planning.
Get ready for a few glorious pages of horrible to sublimely ridiculous red carpet moments, all in one place. Happy Monday! More
Every year, the Oscars occur and every year so does the glitzy Elton John Oscars party (officially, the Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party). Celebrity attendees wore sparkly, fancy, loaned designer dresses and included Heidi Klum, Nina Dobrev, Nicki Minaj and… Chris Brown. More
The important thing to remember is that you will not be able to escape the coming civil war – there are no safe and neutral hidey-holes in which the cowardly can huddle together and take pathetic refuge. You will have to choose, and choose quickly.
If there’s anything the Internet has taught me, it’s that very few celebrities can shut their mouths in response to criticism.
Also: Is it weird that the most perplexing part of this debacle to me is that American Idol still exists? More
The 2012 American Music Awards, otherwise known as the AMAs, were held last night and… if an awards show takes place in a vaccum and nobody’s around to witness it, did it really happen? We don’t know. But attendees sure as hell tried to make us remember the red carpet.
Despite a mostly bleak guest list, red carpet fashion was a thrill. A cheap, dirty, illicit thrill. Here’s Taylor Swift, Nicki Minaj, Christina Aguilera, Carrie Underwood, Ke$ha, Justin Bieber, Pink, PSY and many more in an impressive collection of very bad things… More
Nicki Minaj has a new perfume out, and you know what that means: as with all celebrity perfumes, she was contractually obligated to make a mystical, magical, nonsensical commercial. So she did, Nicki style. To be honest, I think Nicki kind of phoned it in on this one (what, no monsters or cartoon Goth scenery?), maybe because Lady Gaga already made a crazy cinematic perfume ad and she didn’t want to be accused of copying her. But Nicki at 5 is as good as most people at 11, so let’s do her the honor of figuring out what the heck is going on here. More

Sartorial genius and Anna Wintour pal Nicki Minaj dropped a video for her new single “I Am Your Leader” today, and it’s no less eye popping than we’ve come to expect from her, with the added bonus that it’s actually a good song. (Please stick to rapping, Nicki!) I love the colorful Tim Burton-esque backdrop, and it goes along perfectly with the whole “cute/kooky/scary” image she’s built for herself. She doesn’t wear that many different outfits in it, relatively speaking, but the ones she does wear are pretty memorable. Here are screen caps of all of them, plus some bonus ones of guests Rick Ross and Cam’ron. More

The 2012 BET Awards were held in Los Angeles last night and it was, strangely, full of ’90s stars (Brandy! Monica! The members of Destiny’s Child who got kicked out…?). Also, Nicki Minaj wore one of her most intense outfits yet. Check out red carpet looks from Selita Ebanks, Willow Smith, Kerry Washington, Taraji P. Henson and more ahead. More
