17 Times Nicki Minaj Dressed Exactly Like a Barbie Doll, Right Down To The Pink Dream Car
You might not think that Barbie and Nicki Minaj have all that much in common. After all, Nicki Minaj is a real human woman and Barbie is, well, a plastic doll. The insanely talented rapper has a lot more going for her than Barbie, who just can't seem to commit to a career path. But, if you look closely at Nicki's sartorial past, you'll see that her fashion choices are so clearly influenced by the toy that many little girls (and boys) hate to love and love to hate. Loads of pink? Check! Wacky hair accessories? Check! Uncomfortable-looking high heels? Double check! Their body types might not be similar — Nicki definitely wins in the epically gorgeous curves department — but here are 17 times the singer dressed just like the doll.
The hot pink lip and platinum blonde hair combo is a signature Barbie look. Minaj takes things a step further here with totally ’90s greenish-blue shadow and piled on bling.
'80s Prom Glam
What just about every single “formal” Barbie dress I owned looked like.
This insane fringed top is sooooo Tropical Barbie.
Those. Shoes. And, like, the actual Barbie print tutu style skirt. Minaj was thinking pink looong before Jeremy Scott.
Only Barbie and the “Anaconda” singer could possibly make a stretchy, high-necked pink top and multi-colored hair work.
This is a totally Barbie-esque version of the power suit.

She even has the right set of wheels.
Holiday Barbie called, she wants her fur-trimmed jacket back.
So perfectly coordinated it hurts.
That ice would probably weigh Barbie’s weirdly proportioned body down, but that doesn’t mean she wouldn’t want to own it.
Let's Go to the Mall
This might be a little more Robin Sparkles than Barbie, but I think our little plastic friend would totally hit the gym in a turquoise crop top and pink jacket.
Barbie and Nicki both know the power of turquoise and pink topped with an oversized coat.
Pink and Blonde
Elegant hot pink lips and a light blonde perm.
Perfect Blonde, Again
That hair, though. Seriously.
So freakin’ glam.
’80s ruffles are on point.
