Floss Your Buns And Funbags In Fendi Prints On: Nicki Minaj Says Her Collection Is For Everyone Who Wants To Show Skin

Nicki Minaj is talking bawwwdy positivity as she prepares to launch Fendi Prints On, her 127-piece collection with the Fendi brand this October. Minaj’s brand offers a men’s, women’s and children’s collection and she said she made it with her own curves in mind.

Via Elle:

She knew, she says, that “everybody’s going to be like, ‘Where’s the pink, bi**h?’ ” She also wanted to make body-conscious pieces that showcase curves. “I want to make clothes that make girls with my body look sexy,” she says. “We’re in a new time, where you don’t have to feel bad if you’re not the tiniest you’ve ever been. Women, we struggle with that so much, because we’ll go back to old pictures of ourselves, and we’ll be like, ‘I used to be so skinny!,’ and we start making ourselves feel bad. What I want [to tell] girls is not necessarily, ‘Go and gain weight and have a big booty,’ but ‘If you do have curves, be proud of it, flaunt it—love the skin you’re in.’ As clichéd as that sounds, I’ve been really trying to teach myself that. ‘This is who I am; take me or leave me, bye!’ ” The collection, she says, is “for everyone who wants to show skin. We all go to the beach, we all get sexy, we all have sex, we all bust it open!”

Well busss it then baby…

While you can also expect to buss your piggy bank open for some items, Minaj also says she kept her roots in mind and has affordable pieces as well:

“If I’m going to do Fendi,” she says, “I want to feel like I’m back in Southside Jamaica, Queens, New York, wearing Fendi. I don’t only want to be front row rocking my Fendi; I want to be in the hood rocking my Fendi, too.” Thus the collection includes more approachable pieces like T-shirts and sneakers emblazoned with her face. Her fans, she says, “are going to be really surprised when they see that I did think of things for them. I totally know that there are a lot of people who think that they can’t afford Fendi, and those are going to be some of our new customers, because they’re going to go and get the sneaker, or the hat, or the T-shirt. If you love your fashion, then sometimes you save up for certain things that you really love.” Minaj famously worked as a waitress prior to her current galactic fame. “When I was doing my 9-to-5,” she says, “this is something that I would have saved up for.”

Did You Know J.Lo’s Green Jungle Print Grammy Dress Sparked The Creation Of Google Images

There is not even any question about the FACT that J.Lo’s 2000 Grammys look — a green jungle print Versace number with a PLUNGING neckline was a HUGE moment for her.

The actress recently went on record to tell the story of how she came to wear the dress and the reaction she got when she arrived to the Grammy Awards.

Check it out below:

In the time since that dress made history and according to Lopez, inspired Google to create the Google Images search bar — Lopez has gone on to wear Versace time and time again. In fact, J. Lo reveals in the video that she will be wearing the label yet again to the 2019 Met Gala this May.

But sadly Lopez also revealed that Versace’s longtime designer and tailor Luigi Massi died on April 2.

“I’ve had a long relationship since this green dress with Versace. There was a gentleman named Luigi who was always there with me. He would fit me. He would help design. We had over a 20-year relationship,” Lopez says.

“We heard that he just passed away in the middle of making my Met Ball gown. I was one of the first people they called because he always had such an amazing time creating looks for me,” she says as she started to tear up.

“They know how much I loved him and how much fun we had. You made me feel so beautiful so many times. Your attention to detail, your talent and your love will never be forgotten. Thank you Luigi, we will miss you.”

J.Lo ultimately dedicated the video to Massi, who she remembers as always having a great time with despite the fact that he spoke no English and she spoke no Italian.

Incredible right? The power of fashion. How many amazing things did you learn in this one video?
