We salute Nicki Minaj and her self-confessed love of colourful clothes.

Not one to slip under the radar where red carpet fashion is concerned, Nicki opted for a rainbow print as she stepped out in New York last night.

The songstress wore candy-coloured stripes as she hit up the launch party for her Viva Glam make-up collection for MAC.

Nicki actually looks pretty understated, for her, in this colourful two-piece. Just us?

True to form, the star was also working her signature pink lippy (from the new MAC range) and statement lashes.

So, what do you think of Nicki's candy stripes? Love that she wears so much colour? Love or loathe?
