Nicki Minaj’s Ruffled Pink Dress: Yay or Nay? (PHOTOS)

By: / June 27, 2011

Nicki Minaj has a well-established love for outrageous clothing but was her look at Sunday night’s BET Awards a fashion misstep?

The stunning rapper showed off her famous curves in a skin-tight mauve sweater dress with ruffled faux bolero sleeves. The star paired the ruffled dress with patterned green and gray tights which unfortunately made Nicki’s legs look like they were covered in a strange fur.

While Nicki’s outfit might have been a style blunder, it won her the attention of Justin Bieber during the award show.

Bieber shamelessly flirted with Nicki while they presented the Best Male Hip-Hop Award during the show.

“I’m all grown up now,” Justin told Nicki. “Next year I’ll be 18… So what’s up?” When Nicki replied by asking him if he could “handle curves” the camera zoomed in on her famous rump with Bieber proclaiming, “Yes I can!”

Nicki’s appearance at the BET Awards put to end a bizarre internet rumor that the singer had passed away over the weekend. The rumor first started up on Twitter when “#ripnickiminaj” became a trending topic, prompting many of Nicki’s fans to become worried that she had passed away. Luckily for everyone, Nicki is alive, in good health and wearing outrageous outfits!
