Nicki Minaj is known for her bold style choices, like latex dresses and Rapunzel-esque hair. She gives even Kylie Jenner a run for her money with her wig game. But lately Minaj has been switching things up by toning things down, and boy, it totally worked in her favor for her latest photoshoot for T Magazine.

The “No Frauds” singer was outfitted in a white collared shirt, belted black jacket, and big gold hoops. Her makeup by Pat McGrath and Sheika Daley was kept minimal other than some feathery lashes, arched brows, and a bold red lip, while Tokyo Stylez created her effortless hair.

Come to think of it, Minaj looked more than a little like Nigerian-British singer Sade with her slicked-back hair and statement lip.

“I know who I am. I am getting Nicki Minaj figured out with this album and I’m loving her,” Minaj, whose fourth album title is still a closely guarded secret, told the T MagazineBold or understated, plenty to love, we think!
