Nicki Minaj has been making the rounds at New York’s Fashion Week and she’s been rubbing elbows with some of fashion’s biggest names. The singer’s brought all her clothes and technicolor wigs with her–and she’s wearing them all at the same time.

While the runways could use some models of different shades, Minaj is certainly bring her own color palette to each show.

This show is where Nicki is sitting next to real royalty. Editor-in-Chief of W magazine Stefano Tonchi to her left and editor-in-chief of American Vogue Anna Wintour on her right, at Carolina Herrera’s Spring 2012 fashion show during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York City.

Nicki left her platinum Marie Antoinette wig behind at Carolina Herrera’s show and had an outfit change before Betsy Johnson. This one looks like she just won some sort of babyshower costume contest.
