See All The Ways Nicki Minaj Won New York Fashion Week

Doing the absolute most.

Published September 13, 2017

Nicki Minaj will be the first to remind you that at heart, she'll always be a Queens gyal. She also has a passion for fashion. When these interest meld, as they do twice a year when New York Fashion Week occurs, she has a hard time maintaining her chill. But we mean, who wouldn't? A biannual summit of the industry's most impressive talents and boldest fashionistas is certainly cause for fanfare. And Nic just might be NYFW's best hype man.

Though she's attended what is basically a festival for fashion for six years now, an amount of exposure that often turns regular attendees jaded, Her Minajesty has yet to curb her enthusiasm — and we love her all the more for it. On the last day of NYFW, we reflect on all the times Nic did the most this past week.
