MTV Video Music Awards 2012: Nicki Minaj Turns Heads in Curvy Jumpsuit (GALLERY)

VMAs Past Looks
Look back at the chicest styles to hit the VMAs carpet.
Leave it to Nicki Minaj to make one of the more memorable entrances at Thursday night’s MTV Video Music Awards.

The Starships rapper turned pretty much every head in the room when she stepped onto the red carpet in a form-fitting, bedazzled jumpsuit that showed off her lovely curves.

Minaj sexed up her look even further with a blonde-and-pink wig, which busted out of a black studded pilot hat.

Sure, her ensemble may not have been the type of outfit one would wear to the Oscars, but at least Minaj improved from last year’s, um, concoction. (Relive that monstrosity here.)


During the telecast, Minaj took home the award for Female Video of the Year, besting such competitors as Beyonce, Rihanna and Katy Perry.

Check out Minaj’s look in the gallery, above, then sound off: Is it fashion-forward? Or totally backwards?
