We’re used to seeing Nicki Minaj in spectacle-worthy “costume” outfits, so when we found the rapper cleaning up real nice and looking extremely prim for her latest TV appearances, we simply felt a write up was in order.
Nicki, who is currently one of the judges on American Idol, appeared on Ellen and Jay Leno early this week in bubble gum pink and ruby red frocks that were classy and cut to flatter. It was a little surprising and quite refreshing to see Nicki actually wear something that wasn’t Harajuku-like and outrageous. Here are clips of those appearances for you. And for the benefit of the those interested, we decided to pick the ones wherein she talks about her feud with Mariah:

See. Nicki CAN look good when she wants to. We love the form-fitting red frock. It’s sexy and very sophisticated. She also looks really elegant in that pink ensemble, yes? Very Reese Witherspoon in Legally Blond.
We have zero details on both of Nicki’s outfits at the moment, but you are welcome to steal her Ellen look by grabbing the fiery red number Miranda Kerr wore here. As for her pink two-piece outfit, you can channel that for a LOT LESS with these pieces from Nordstrom. Getting both won’t cost you more than USD100:
