I rarely find American Idol Season 12 judge Nicki Minaj’s ensembles tastefully put together. She usually chooses to wear risque, eccentric, or even controversial outfits. Does anyone remember the blood-red robe ensemble and the Pope look-a-like she brought to last year’s Grammy Awards?

With that in mind, I was delightfully surprised by her gorgeous New Year’s Eve ensemble!

The bombshell singer looked all glammed up and glittering in gold. Nicki welcomed the new year wearing a metallic gold Herve Leger bandage dress by Max Azria, which she paired with Christian Louboutin 160 glitter ‘Daffodil’ platform pumps.

Nicki went all Versace to accessorize, choosing the Medusa coin necklace and bracelet set to make a statement and complement her outfit.

The American rapper, singer, songwriter, and actress also added a gold Versace cuff bracelet with a matching cuff ring on her other hand. What do you think of her look? While she might be dressed in gold from head to foot, we believe her whole ensemble was right for her and, most importantly, not overdone.

We also loved Versace’s coin necklace and bracelet set, which is the perfect accessory for ringing in the New Year.

In some places, wearing coins on New Year’s Eve will bring you luck in the money department all year round (maybe that’s what Nicki was aiming for?) In any case, the coin necklace and bracelet certainly made a statement!
