Nicki Minaj: Style Evolution (PHOTOS)

Nicki Minaj (born Onika Tanya Maraj) has a personal style that defies all the rules of fashion, but the girl makes it work and we love it! Instead of wearing the same frocks as other stars, the Saint James native shows of her best assets in curve-clinging jumpsuits, bright ensembles, pompom dresses and insane wigs. How else can you shine among a sea of celebs at Fashion Week or performing at the Versace x H&M fashion show?

Take a look at Minaj’s ever changing styles on and off the stage in the gallery below as Billboard’s rising star celebrates her 29th birthday this Thursday.
