All hail the Queen of Rap! More than two years after she released her second studio album, Nicki Minaj is back with The Pinkprint — her upcoming third studio album scheduled for release on December 15. It includes her hit singles “Pills n Potions,” “Anaconda,” and the newly released “Only.”
Nicki is undoubtedly on fire! She’s everywhere these days, and on Thursday, she will be dominating newsstands with her cover for V magazine’s winter 2014/2015 issue. Shot by Mario Testino, the 31-year-old rapper showed off her famous curves and fierce looks in designer outfits.
On the cover, Nicki channeled a Parisian-chic look in a red Guess dress complete with a beret, Carolina Amato gloves, and red Jimmy Choo pumps. She posed alongside a statue in a majestic garden setting.
The “Super Bass” singer also gave her fans a sneak peek at the inside photos for the magazine, including a hot pic where she’s dressed in a black bodysuit and tights by Donna Karan. The outfit was styled with a belt, a black beret, and black Charlotte Olympia pumps.
She also unleashed her inner wild cat in a Balmain dress that features sheer cutouts, making this the wildest look from the photo shoot. It was styled with a Eugenia Kim leopard-print hat with cute ears, matching Agnelle gloves, and Manolo Blahnik heels in the same animal-print design.
