Nicki Minaj on How She Gets Dressed: 'I Don't Give a Damn'

Nicki Minaj was the front row star at Prabal Gurung today (more on that later--it was amazing) and she owned that front row in a way that only a megawatt star (or really, just Nicki Minaj) can. If you thought she couldn't out-do that crazypants outfit she wore to the VMAs, think again. At Gurung's show she wore her hair big and curly and pink with a bleach blond fringe and a ginormous pink bow. As for the clothes? A half-pink-half-blue knotted in the front bikini-ish leotard top was paired with a tiered tulle '80s miniskirt over crazy colorful collage-y tights. She topped of her look with a hot pink oversized pretzel around her neck. So we had to ask her, what was she wearing and how on earth does she put it all together?

Fashionista: Um, you look amazing. What are you wearing? Nicki Minaj: You know what? I'm wearing Shojono Tomo leggings again [Ed. note: don't worry Eric Wilson, we couldn't understand at first either], a little Betsy Johnson, and a splash here and a splash there.

So how do you put it all together? I just think to myself, I really don't give a damn, I'm going to do what the hell I want, so this is like my dream look, my Harajuku dream look.

How did you get into Japanese style? I've been calling myself a Harajuku Barbie for a few years now and my stylist has just started requesting stuff from Japan and I've started loving it more and more. Now I'm addicted again. I loved it before, I kind of fell back a little bit, and now I'm full force again.

Have you been over there? No, I'm going to Hong Kong in a week but I haven't made it to Japan yet. I'm waiting to book an entire little tour their so I'm going to wait for next year.

We have a feeling they're gonna love her in Japan.
