Last month's profile of Nicki Minaj in the New York Times was revealing for many reasons, but more so because it detailed her flourishing relationship with Vogue. The magazine's director of special events, Slyvana Ward Durrett, has had her eye on the singer for a long time and the rapper's agent was said to be pitching to the magazine for a cover. And last week, Minaj spoke of Anna Wintour being really nice to her when they sat together at the Carolina Herrera show last season
Although the cover is yet to happen, we're more than happy with this shot of Minaj that appears in the magazine's latest issue. In the Steven Klein-shot editorial titled 'True Colours', Minaj is painted blue and smolders in a red dress. Although she's had a few good editorials in the past, this is by far my favourite.
