So while looking at some of Nicki Minaj’s recent outfits I came to the realization that she has a lot of hits, but then she also has a lot of duds. I decided to look further back to see if something would capture my attention, and I came across a picture of her wearing the Valentino Tri-Color Crepe Dress that retails for $5,200. Hold on a moment while I take a drink.
While I’m not one to just spend $5,000 on a dress, it’s not like I have it anyways, I can’t help but love this dress. The one thing about fashion is how different an outfit can look from one person to the other. Emma Stone, Olivia Palermo, and Maria Menounos are just some of the ladies that wore this same dress last year. Out of all of them, I found that the dress looked so much better on Nicki Minaj. So if you have the five grand to spend on one dress, then go ahead and spend. On the other hand, if you are like me and can only hope to at least touch this dress, then check out how you can recreate this look with two simple options below!
It is hard to find a skirt or a dress similar to this amazing combination, but you can splurge on the Luck Be a Lady Dress in Black and Red which is available at ModCloth for $79.99. You can wear it with a simple white mini cardigan and make it a day or you can wear it by itself. You can also opt for a shirt and skirt combo. Get the same look for less by combining a white polo shirt, like the Arizona long sleeve polo shirt at JcPenney that is on sale for just $14.99, with a red and black flared pleated skirt like the one I found on Etsy.
While some of these options might not be the same color or the same structure, you can still get a similar look. One can only hope that a more inexpensive brand can make a similar dress for the poor souls that are not able to afford this dress, because this a must have dress!
