The runways of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week have seen relatively tame creations from designers since the spring/summer 2012 shows began last week.
Bold colors, yes. Dramatic make-up, naturally. But over-the-top concoctions have been scarce, vacated for pieces that women can (sort of) imagine blending into their wardrobes.
Enter Nicki Minaj.
The pop artist, who dragged a tail of stuffed animals behind her during the MTV Video Music Awards, sat precariously close to fashion empress Anna Wintour during Carolina Herrera’s runway show, decked in neon pom-poms.
Puff balls weren’t the only unconventional item found on Minaj’s outfits during her fashion week appearances. Other random objects include a purple pretzel, what looks like an egg shell and tiger ears. See more photos below.
