Nicki Minaj's often outlandish (and "what the heck!?" comment-worthy) looks belie the fact she knows fashion. Not only was she a New York Fashion Week front-row staple (Prabal Gurung, Oscar de la Renta to name two), she's also well versed in high-end design (her go-to clothing line choices include Betsey Johnson and Versace).
So it comes as no surprise that the pint-sized phenom may be starting up her very own fashion line.
Her star is clearly on the rise: she -- and Ricky Martin -- were recently announced as the replacement spokespeople for MAC's Viva Glam line, taking over for Lady Gaga.
And she wouldn't be the first star to market themselves as an actor/actress and as a clothing designer.
Which got us thinking about the labels we love that are designed by Hollywood's A-list.
