Nicki Minaj has left her stuffed animals and neon animal prints behind. The "Super Bass" singer channels her inner Mona Lisa for the November issue of W magazine — dedicated to art as well as fashion! For the shoot, Nicki is styled in a number of couture gowns, transformed into an 18th-century noble lady for the photo shoot. OK! NEWS: NICKI MINAJ ON HER FUTURE — “OSCAR, GRAMMYS & BUN IN THE OVEN” Artist Francesco Vezzoli and stylist Edward Enninful took on Nicki's new look. "Hip-hop star Nicki Minaj has made the leap from little known Lil Wayne protégée to object of national obsession, via a number-one album, seven singles simultaneously on the Billboard Hot 100 — a first for any artist — and a series of scene-­stealing cameos, including an epic verse on the Jay-Z and Kanye West track “Monster,' ” W writes in the article dedicated to Nicki. Along the way, she’s established a zany look (all neon, all the time), introduced countless alter egos, and become the first female rapper since Missy Elliott to be cast not as a sidekick but as a bona fide swaggering leading lady."
