The Vogue photo shoot is a only just one photo of Nicki Minaj posing for a story in Vogue's March 2012 issue.
On discovering make up at LaGuardia High School 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.
On not being label-obsessed but admitting to spending $50,000 at one time on certain items If I can combine designer things with other things, I’m a happy camper. 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.
On what she’s planning to do for young girls 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. I could never be that girl.
