Nicki Minaj Style: Does Singer's Shocking Bondage Outfit Go Too Far? (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

Celebrity "shock" style just got a bit more ridiculous, thanks to Nicki Minaj.

Gone are the days of Marilyn Monroe and Katharine Hepburn -- they and other screen sirens of their time used fashion as a way to raise important women's issues (Monroe, body esteem; Hepburn, women's rights) and to express their confidence in sophisticated, smart and stunning looks.

To grab headlines in this day and age, many celebs resort to shocking and inappropriate outfits (hello, Lady Gaga's meat dress).

Case in point is this look from Nicki Minaj. Yesterday, in London, the talented singer left her hotel wearing this bondage dress. Yes, bondage.

Strapped down in leather, barely there shorts, buckles and PVC, the outfit is weird. It detracts from Minaj's talent (she's, by far, one of the most reputable female rappers out there) and her natural beauty. And we're left wondering about the message she's sending young fans. We're also curious about how this outfit could possibly be comfortable.

What do you think?
