What’s not to love about this ‘make-under'(as referred to by Nicki herself) the reigning queen of Hip-Pop has undergone? On the newly released cover of Elle Magazine(US EDITION), the self-proclaimed black barbie looks absolutely stunning without her trademark neon pink lips, exaggerated lashes, wig and costumes.
This is what she had to say about her newly refined look for the photo-shoot:
“When I saw myself with barely any makeup at, it was such a… like, I’m so, so attached to my pink lipstick, it’s hard. I feel that it’s become a part of me. To go in front of the camera, without pink lips or big ol’ crazy lashes— you know, nothing— I felt naked. It was scary! So this photo shoot was a real accomplishment in my eyes.”
Besides the beautiful images of less is more, Nicki talks about being bullied as a young girl, why she is constantly defensive , her aspirations of world domination and her advice to women. I think Nicki should stick to this ‘less is MORE’ approach for a while, she’s made her name already by being an over-exaggerated dressed human.
Totally, looking forward to reading her full interview in the magazine which would be out worldwide 18th of March, in the meantime enjoy some of the released images.
PS: I particularly love the leather jacket(Tom Ford), simply unaffordable for little ol’me so I’ll just admire and move on, but there is the Print bathing suit (3rd picture) by Jeremy Scott for Adidas at just $95(available in all Adidas Stores worldwide), which I can most certainly afford.
