Nicki Minaj lets it all hang out in the name of fashion.

Over the weekend, the “Anaconda” rapper, who’s been overseas for Paris Fashion Week, left little to the imagination when she stepped out in a revealing one shoulder top by Mugler, while sitting front row at the Haider Ackermann Womenswear Fall/Winter 2017/2018 show. Exposing one breast, the self-proclaimed Barbie who has served as a muse for designers like Giuseppe Zanotti, rocked a diamond-shaped pastie on the other.

Of course, it wasn’t long after posting pics from her epic weekend that fans began making comparisons to an iconic look that her rival, fellow rapper Lil Kim, rocked nearly two decades ago. In 1999, Lil Kim turned heads in a sparkly purple number (also baring one breast and a pastie) at the MTV Video Music Awards, cementing her status as a budding fashion influencer.

Though Minaj has yet to reveal the inspiration behind her look (we don’t anticipate she will), the similarities are uncanny. So tell us, is it hot or not? Sound off in the comment section and don’t forget to check out more of Minaj’s fashion looks from Paris Fashion Week in the gallery below.
