Nicki Minaj took on bold hues tonight, but she did not opt for quite the outrageous showstopper as she has in awards show past. Case in point: the rapper stepped out in an eye-catching (that's what a bright shade of citron will do for you) floor-length strapless gown from Monique Lhuillier's Resort '13 collection. You may recognise this dress as the same one that Modern Family's Julie Bowen wore to this year's Emmys, but that's neither here nor there, especially when you consider that Nicki paired her look with a platinum blonde waves, pink lips and one serious statement necklace. Are you feeling Nicki's departure from wild and crazy outfits in favor of something a bit more glamorous?
