Nicki Minaj has been all over Paris Fashion Week, but one outfit in particular has been causing a lot of conversation. Nicki showed up to an event in what was essentially half a blouse, exposing her full left breast, which she concealed with nothing but a nipple pasty.
After the surprise at Minaj’s boundary-pushing outfit wore off, questions of whether the outfit was Lil Kim-inspired began to surface. Anyone who was around for the 1999 VMAs will remember Kim’s similarly provocative and asymmetrical outfit. Given the fact that Nicki and Kim have had issues in the past, it seemed unlikely that Minaj would be paying tribute to her sworn enemy, and she seems to have attempted to clarify the inspiration.
Is Going to Law School Worth It Anymore?A 2015 study by the Access Group Center for Research and Policy Analysis found that only one in five people who graduated from law school between 2010 and 2015 strongly agreed that obtaining a law degree was worth the cost. Perhaps more troubling, only 38% of law school graduates, down from 56% between 2000 and 2009, described themselves as having a good job after graduation. With four out of five recent law school graduates at least somewhat regretting their decision to attend – and six out of 10 failing to find a good job after graduating – it makes sense to examine whether going to law school is still worth it in 2017. Keeping in mind the high tuition costs, interest rates and potential salaries, another good metric to consider would be its ROI (return on investment), calculated as its salary-to-debt ratio in a new study by online lender SoFi.

Reposting French fashion icon Caroline De Maigret’s photo on Instagram, Nicki has pointed to a 1907 painting by the one and only Pablo Picasso which definitely resembles her look. It’s unclear if this was the direct inspiration for the Mugler top, or whether Minaj is simply letting us know that the idea’s been around for over a hundred years. Check out the post below, and check out Kim’s 1999 VMA outfit in the gallery above.
