For his spring 2012 collection, Prabal Gurung was inspired by Japanese photographer Nobuyoshi Araki, who often depicted "sensual flowers" with "a subversive quality," the designer explained backstage at his show. Meanwhile, Nicki Minaj sat front row in a large, shiny hair bow that fit right in with the metallic neons on the catwalk. "I love Nicki Minaj!" gushed Gurung.
