Did Nicki Minaj Just Change The Bob Game?

Nicki Minaj's bob is officially legit: It's landed in L'Uomo Vogue. Looks like the singer, who switched to shorter hair just last week, is already getting the red-carpet treatment for her edgier style.
On the cover, Nicki is full-on film noir. The 'do she's rocking would put Louise Brooks to shame — it's like a modern take on Vidal Sassoon's iconic cuts. And, while we're having a serious bob moment (and so is all of Hollywood), Nicki manages to make it distinctly her own. Check out the rest of the pics from the shoot: Her bangs do things we've never seen bangs do before. (Don't try this at home, kids.)
Sure, she's hung up her cotton-candy wigs — but she's still true to herself. You've got to love her for that. So, will Nicki's bob catch on? Probably not: It's a little too sleek, and the bangs are a bit blunt for those of us without professional stylists on hand. But, this girl has never been about the attainable — she's all drama.
