Nicki Minaj's Black Dress Is Anything But Basic

When Nicki Minaj wears an LBD, it's never ever boring.

Proof: the sexy tuxedo-inspired Saint Laurent mini-dress she sported at Fashion Rocks in New York on Tuesday.

The Dazed cover girl looked fierce and in charge, sporting a knee-buckling gaze, slicked-back hair and statement-making Giuseppe Zanotti booties.

Nicki's cleavage-baring dress could have been super basic but thanks to the expert tailoring and the waist-accentuating belt, it was anything but.

The revealing outfit is just the latest in a string of racy looks the "Anaconda" singer has sported. From the see-through crop top she sported at the Summer Jam festival to the leg-baring snakeskin dress she wore at the 2014 MTV VMAs, Nicki has been proving she has the confidence to wear even the most scandalous looks (and we love her for it).

What do you think of her tuxedo mini-dress?
