Nicki Minaj is painted blue in the March issue of Vogue

Minaj talks extensively about her style to the magazine, explaining that her “costumes, not outfits” are usually made in Japan by unknown designers. She also reveals that she wasn’t so adventurous fashion-wise while she was growing up in Queens. “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,” says Minaj. “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.”
While Minaj has chosen the right profession for being a glamour girl every day, she says that she wasn’t always sure that she wanted to be a recording artist.
“A huge part of me wanted to be a lawyer,” Minaj tells the magazine. “I would do a really good job as a prosecutor.”
