Rapper Nicki Minaj is the face of Vogue Arabia's latest edition, which will be distributed among a number of Middle Eastern countries.
The Vogue feature is said to be a first for Minaj, who recently released a new album, entitled 'Queen,' to much success. With the album gaining international attention and hitting "number one status in over 85 countries," it's no surprise that the publication sought her out for the cover shoot.
In the shots, Minaj is shown wearing high-fashion ensembles, with an elegant hat with a dramatic brim and a silky suit jacket with puffed sleeves sported in one, while the other shows her with a long side ponytail and a show-stopping gown that has a slit up the leg and bundles of lace along the length of both arms.
