Nicki Minaj goes blue for the cover of Vogue magazine’s March 2012 Issue, posing for Steven Klein in a fuchsia gown and matching gloves, pink lipstick and curly hair. She tells vogue that when she was in high school she was not into fashion  until a chance encounter: 

“I was dressing  in Tommy Hilfiger baggy shirts and Boss jeans, but then I met a person who dressed like a tiny lady-pantsuits, heels, lots of makeup. I thought she was larger than life. She once did my makeup-I had never seen myself  made up before. I didn’t want to wash it off; I felt like I had one day to live this fantasy of being a glamour girl.”

Minaj claims “If I can combine designer things with other things, I’m a happy camper”. Not so with accessories. At one time she was spending $50,000 a month on Giuseppe, Versace, YSL and Fendi shoes. And I bought tons of Vuitton bags. When you’re a young girl from Queens, you’re going to stock up on those bags.”

Minaj is adamant that her legacy will not be one of a free spending, know-nothing celebrity. She’s planning “an enormous foundation to nurture girls. The Nicki Minaj girl is a fun, artsy girl who can become a fierce force to be reckoned with on Wall Street!

They hang on my every word, so I tell them, go to school, be ambitious. The worst position is to be financially dependent on the man.” And what of that alternate Nicki, serving her lord and master a martini by the pool? The fuchsia waves shake furiously. “I could never be that girl!”
