Nicki Minaj at the 2015 BET Awards in Givenchy and Mugler

Posted on June 29, 2015

Miss Nicki sported a whole lotta look at this event. Not that we’re complaining, although we liked one a lot more than the other.

Does leather and lace ever really work together without looking a little tacky? We’re asking.

Enh. We’re not loving the “Bondage Morticia” vibe here, which is a shame because that description makes it sound more awesome than it is. It’s just … you’re at the BET Awards. Even with the leather straps, is this really the time to break out black lace? It just looks drab and uninteresting – except for the zipper, which looks ridiculously oversized and puckered all the way down. The face looks great, but that’s really the only thing working here.

On the other hand…

BAM. Now THAT is some BET Awards realness. The shoes, the jewelry, the nails – can we say it’s all on fleek? Because it’s all on fleek. Also, the dress is kind of badass, even if it’s also a little crazy. And we can’t tell if she’s showing off her mani and jewelry or if she’s covering her waist because she’s not comfortable, but either way, we’re thinking a little more material in the bodice would’ve made her happier. Still, it’s a high-impact look that works despite the damn side cutouts.
