Nicki Minaj has always been game for a little unconventional fashion. The star never does things by halves, and for her Met Gala appearance this year, Minaj and her stylist Maher Jridi went for all-out glamour, working with the team at H&M on a custom look befitting hip-hop's queen.
Page Six can exclusively reveal the rapper will wear H&M to the glitzy event, which has a theme of Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons. Guests at every Met Gala attempt to strike the elusive balance between personal expression and the evening's theme. "The tailoring is sharp and flawless for this special night, and it's all so effortless", said Joe Jonas. "I have special collaboration with H&M coming this fall so they are dressing me for the night and they nailed it".
