Nicki Minaj is infamously known for her over-the-top outfits, accessories AND hair. Some critics have even argued that her flamboyant ways rivaled those of Lady Gaga. It seems as if the star has had a recent make-UNDER and Elle magazine decided to place this beauty on the cover of their April 2013  issue. Nicki Minaj has always been a gorgeous woman and while there isn't anything wrong with makeup, let's be honest. Too much is overkill for anyone! Be as it may, Nicki Minaj looks stunningly, dare I say, simple in April issue of Elle. The responses to Minaj's toned down look have almost been celebratory (yikes lol) and she is receiving great feedback on her new fashion picks. Will this look be here to stay for Minaj? Stay tuned to find out!
