When it comes to featuring latex couture and alternate fashions in her live performances and pretty much any place else we see her, Nicki Minaj is a queen. Yes, Katy Perry, Beyoncé, so many others singers and actresses wear latex bodysuits, tops and latex lingerie on stage, in their videos or just out and about town. But if you caught Nicki Minaj’s performances at the 2018 BET Awards just passed you’d have to admit this rapper/pop star is at the top of the heap when it comes to rockin’ latex.
As unafraid to show herself off as to make full use of textile art in all its various splendor, Minaj is definitely one of the leaders in this particular pop arena. Watching “Barbie Tingz” and “Chun Li,” we know we are getting a high-water mark of video costume design that is pretty much the cutting edge of what is out there and, most importantly, what’s coming.
