New rap sensation Nicki Minaj was seen making her way through the Miami International Airport last New Year’s Day. This probably isn’t the definition of “dressed down” for most people, but for Nicki Minaj, who has the same crazy fashion aesthetics as Lady Gaga, her airport outfit practically qualifies as loungewear.
It’s so surprising to see the usually dressed-to-the-hilt Nicki Minaj wearing only a tank top and jeans out in public! It’s a good thing she has on one of her now famous wigs in these pictures because, otherwise, I don’t think I would’ve been able to recognize her.
Another thing, Nicki Minaj may be wearing jeans, but they’re not just any pair of regular blue ones! Nicki Minaj chose to wear this pair of J Brand 912 low-rise pencil leg in venom, which is in an ultra-trendy, very fashion-forward wax finish.
You might remember these jeans as the pair that Sandra Bullock wore when she danced with Betty White on stage at the 2010 Teen’s Choice Awards. The wax finish makes these jeans look like they’re made of leather, but, of course, they’re 100% made of denim and the luxurious Japanese twill that makes J Brand jeans feel like second skin.
