Nicki Minaj sure is turning up in the weirdest places this week. After a surprise appearance at Prabal, here she is wearing a crafty pom-pom dress sitting next to Anna...at Carolina Herrera. Somehow we don't really see Nicki being into any of the looks at Herrera. And what do you think she and Anna talked about? And where do you think she'll show up next? MIchael Kors? We are really enjoying the random celebrity sightings this season.
See Nicki Minaj Transformed Into Famous 18th Century Courtesans for W's Art & Design Issue
Remember when Nicki Minaj sat next to Anna Wintour at the Carolina Herrera show? Well, she was actually flanked by two Condé editors that day. To her right was W editor-in-chief Stefano Tonchi and apparently that's who we should have had our eye on in terms of cover speculation. moreIt makes a lot more sense, actually. As I'm sure you remember, last year's cover girl for the Art Issue was a very naked (and very criticized) Kim Kardashian. Minaj graces one of two November issue covers--the other, which was revealed yesterday, features relatively unknown Chinese model Sui He shot by Max Vadukul in collaboration with Chinese contemporary artist Ai Weiwei. For Minaj'scover story, Italian artist Francesco Vezzoli and stylist Edward Enniful transformed the hip hop star into some of the most famous courtesans in history: the Marquise de Montespan, Comtesse du Barry, Madame de Pompadour, and Madame Rimsky-Korsakov.
