Nicki Minaj is looking the part of haute Parisienne on the cover of V magazine’s latest issue in a red-hot Guess dress that accentuates the rapper's curves, matching red Jimmy Choo heels, a vintage beret from The Way We Wore, and Carolina Amato gloves. And while the cover line states that "her royal minajesty returns" we all know better because the chart-topping artist never really left us at all.
In her interview, Minaj shared how her upcoming album, The Pinkprint, which is slated to be released December 15, will be her most personal project to date and likens Versace fashion to rap.
"What I love about Versace is that it's so rich…rap is a lot of showing off, and fashion is too. Versace is like, look at me, b***h. I'm here," Minaj said.
The photo shoot was styled by Robbie Spencer and captured by fashion photographer Mario Testino. To view the entire spread and interview, grab a copy when it hits newsstands November 13.
