A Shining Star...

Nicki Minaj went all the way glam in the October 2011 issue of Glamour magazine:

Nicki Minaj can be seen looking stunning and colorful in gorgeous designs from Louis Vuitton, Tom Ford, Dolce & Gabbana, Brian Atwood, Giuseppe Zanotti and Christian Louboutin. 
The October spread celebrates Nicki from “coming out of nowhere” to becoming a SUPERSTAR!

The "Blazin" hot rapper revealed just where she draws inspiration from one of her idol Marilyn Monroe.“I’ve always adored Marilyn Monroe–mostly for her facial expressions in her pictures.”

In one of the photos, Nicki is wearing a form-fitting Dolce & Gabbana Star Mini-Dress from the 2011 Fall Ready-To-Wear Collection. The dress is paired with a Dolce & Gabbana Star-Detailed Leather Clutch ($995) and black Brian Atwood Maniac Napa Platform Pumps ($650). The sunglasses are Lux By A-Morir ($350)
