MTV Movie Awards: Nicki Minaj Looks Surprisingly Minimal & Gorgeous

The red-carpet arrivals are still pouring in at the MTV Movie Awards, but we may already have our hearts set on an early favorite: one Miss Nicki Minaj, who went surprisingly minimal — and completely gorgeous — in a floor-length, very fitted black Alexander McQueen gown, gold bangles, and a perfect pout (notably better than her other MTV awards show outfit). Talk about star power — before she showed up on the early side for tonight's occasion, the biggest style celebrity to grace MTV's arrivals was actually Grumpy Cat (in a mountie hat, no less). But, when Minaj arrived, the tides turned, as did the heads of everyone in her vicinity. She's here. She's severe. Get used to it.
