Nicki Minaj has opened up about a wardrobe malfunction at this year’s Met Gala and why her dress kept slipping.
The rapper discussed her look, which was styled by Burberry’s Riccardo Tisci, with La Anthony on the red carpet at the party in New York City on Monday night.
For the occasion, Minaj wore a black ball gown with feathers, a large black belt, and leather pants. She completed the look with a baseball cap, while her face and body were covered in jewels.
According to Minaj, she struggled with one side of the dress, telling Anthony that the strapless dress kept falling off because the underwire didn’t fit properly.
“The only unplanned thing about my appearance is that my breasts are [are] It showed up,” she said. “Because they made the cup size a bit small.”
Anthony joked that the dress was designed for Mina before she gave birth to her son in September 2020. Minaj agreed with Anthony’s comment and said, “Enjoy those tits, because you’ll never see them again.”
Aside from the wardrobe issue, Minaj has expressed her support for Tisci and shared how much she loves the outfit he created for her, especially her hat.
“I’m here with my baby, Ricardo,” she said. “I love Ricciardo, this is really my friend. So here I am supporting him, that’s it. But I love the hat.”
“I’m obsessed with the hat,” she continued. “I didn’t want to take a look if I couldn’t wear the hat. So, I was allowed to wear the hat.”
She also opened about the jewelry that wowed her body, admitting that it wasn’t easy to wear and that she was “honored” and grateful to Tisci and her makeup artist Pat McGrath and her team throughout the process.
“You know I don’t like sitting, I’m very impatient, but it’s all about Ricciardo,” she explained. “[McGrath’s] The whole team did a great job, and I was honored.”
Minaj had previously declined an invitation to attend the Met Gala last year, as she had not yet been vaccinated and did not want to get vaccinated just for this event.
“They want you to be vaccinated for the Met,” I tweeted. If you get vaccinated, it won’t happen [be] for the Met. It will be just as soon as I feel like I’ve done enough research. I’m working on it now. Meanwhile baby, be safe. Wear the mask with two strings attached to your head and face. This is not loose. “
