Considering the music industry is such a cut-throat world, we were tempted to start off this special with 'move over Lady Gaga!' But we won't.
Hip-hop star Nicki Minaj has proved that there's enough space for originality, kookiness and oomph and no one need step on anyone's toes. Gaga's got her style, and Nicki's got hers. Here's a look.
Nicki Minaj attended the Christie's 'green' auction in New York in this catsuit and sported quite a literal support for going green. This afro is the latest addition to her collection of fantastic wigs and looks. While one half of it stays peroxide blonde, the other is susceptible to change.
But think Nicki, and you think flashy colours. You can never catch this hip-hopper without her fluorescent pink or orange. And this time, she sported it on her lips.
