Dope Or Nope? Wiz Khalifa Rocking $2,095 Christian Louboutin Mikaraja Loafers

Last night Sunday (February 12), rap artist Wiz Khalifa was photo’d with his girlfriend Amber Rose on the red carpet at the 54th annual Grammy Awards. The event was held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California. Khalifa was styling on them lames in a pair of $2,095 Christian Louboutin Mikaraja Black Patent Leather Flat Loafers. He paired his loafers with a black hat, white blazer and black pants. In my opinion, the outfit isn’t the best. It’s okay! Are you feeling Khalifa’s outfit?

Front Page Her: Nicki Minaj Covers New York Magazine And Talks Fashion & Her Alter Ego

Queens Femcee Nicki Minaj is covering the Spring Fashion 2012 issue of New York magazine. On the cover, Minaj is wearing a blonde wig, green eye-shadow, and pink lipstick. Nicki Minaj was scheduled to release her sophomore disc, entitled Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded on Valentine’s Day (February 14) but the album was recently pushed back until April 3. As of posting, a reason for the album delay has yet to be announced. In the issue, Minaj talked about fashion and her alter ego. Below are some excerpts:

So is it safe to assume that you were always interested in fashion?
I’ve always been intrigued by color and by interesting hair. I was one of those weird little girls doing my own hair at the age of 9. I was, like, getting weird gels and new brushes and cornrow holders. I would tweak and perm at the age of 13. When I first went to get my hair colored, I was about 14 and I wanted blonde highlights. The beautician said, “No, you have to get your mother on the phone,” and I was just crying and begging. I’ve always been experimenting. Cyndi Lauper’s videos—that’s what intrigued me.

You were at a lot of fashion shows last season.
The biggest surprise to me was that after I went to some shows with Anna Wintour, I got an autographed photo from her the next day that said, “We match!” I had on these, like, weird balls and craziness, and she had on this really sophisticated dress, but they both were orange. I was like, “Oh my God, I’m getting this framed!” I’m going to get a bigger version and put it in my gym, because that’s some fly motivation.

What’s the story with your different alter egos?
I have different personalities, so I just started naming them. Like, there’s one that’s angry, a little more in-your-face. I named that person Roman. He guest stars on my new album. There’s also his mother, Martha. She guest-stars as well. She’s from London. I also have a Barbie character that comes out every now and then. She’s soft-spoken, really sweet, and polite. She’s got a kid’s voice.
