Nicki Minaj’s Racy Look At Paris Fashion Week Was Inspired By A Famous Painting

Nicki Minja lit up Paris Fashion Week wearing a look that hip-hop has certainly seen before. The Queens rapper donned a one-sleeve Mugler jacket with one breast exposed (with a pastie covering her nipple) to the Haider Ackermann Womenswear Fall/Winter 2017/2018 show in Paris on Saturday (March 4).

Azealia Banks apparently rocked the same ensemble for a photoshoot, and of course, Lil Kim paved the way in breast exposure at the 1999 MTV Awards. Given the obvious similarities – and tension between female rappers right now — the internet didn’t waste much time reminding Minaj that Kimmy Blanco “did it first.”

But it looks like the Queens rapper wasn’t inspired by Kim after all. Based on her Instagram post Sunday (March 5), Picasso was her motivation.

Meanwhile, the debates are still ongoing over whether or not Minaj simply jacked Kim’s style. Peep some of the tweets below.
