Nicki Minaj is Now a Real Barbie Doll

We don’t know whether to clutch our pearls or give her a slow hand clap.

In your life imitating art imitating life news of the day, Billboard’s 2011 Rising Star, Cash Money multi-hyphenate Nicki Minaj will now be immortalized in plastic as a “Her Minajesty” Barbie doll. The Divine Design Pink Friday  doppelganger is being produced for a charity auction through charitybuzz. com and will benefit Project Angel Food, which delivers over 700,000 free meals a year to people suffering with life-threatening illnesses in Los Angeles County.  Bidding, at a $1000 minimum, began December 2 and will conclude on December 19.

We can’t knock her hustle…er, enterprising skills.  Nicki’s MAC Viva Glam line launches in February and her OPI Nail Lacquer will be out next year as well.

Calling All Shoppers: Versace for H&M Launches 11/19

Yet another reason I’m ticked that Birmingham does not have an H&M:  Versace’s capsule collection for the brand drops on November 19th in limited locations! The line was released last night in New York to fanfare featuring performances by Prince and Nicki Minaj.  If you learned any lessons from the Great Missoni for Target Fashion Catastrophe of 2011 earlier this year, readers,  then for the love of all that is fashionable be at H&M early and ready to make a mad dash for haute couture, albeit at slightly higher prices than you may be used to at H&M.  The collection’s pieces are priced from $29.95 to $399…and I’m going to need the hot pink studded sheath, STAT.  As well as the coral tights.  Please and thank you.
