It’s no secret that Nicki Minaj has transformed her look in a major way this year. She’s stepped away from her wild styles and ridiculous ‘fits into an image that “highlights that she is a woman, a very attractive woman with a great body,” her new stylist Jerod McClairn says.
Since joining her glam squad in November, McClairn–who has also lent his sartorial know-how to Tracy McGrady, Penny Hardaway and Brandon Jennings–has become the visionary behind creating the Queen Barbie’s current look. He credits the 17 years in the entertainment industry as his preparation for his first foray into switching up a client’s image.
