Nicki Minaj, who appears in the newest MAC Viva Glam campaign, is not known for sartorial minimalism, though she is often seen wearing a minimal amount of fabric. So at the Viva Glam party last night we asked Phillip Bloch how he’d style Minaj, if given free reign. “I’d love to do Nicki very old-school Hollywood,” he said. “I’ve always had the dream to take these girls who dress a little over-the-top, more theatrical, and take them and do a whole, like, old Hollywood thing. To take Pam Anderson and Nicki Minaj and Lil' Kim and Christina Aguilera, but do them as Veronica Lake and Dorothy Dandridge in an Annie Leibovitz kind of Vanity Fair cover,” Bloch added. “Or even naked, but, like, chic.”
Naked but chic? “Like the right fur stole thrown over, or the right boa, you know, so it looks old Mae West boudoir," he explained.
