The couple celebrated the launch of Minaj’s Fendi collaboration on Tuesday night, both sporting flashy silver looks from the designer collection.
While the 36-year-old “Chun-Li” rapper chose a metallic fishnet dress over a logo-covered silver bikini ($590) and carried a matching mini bag ($1,980), 41-year-old Petty wore a T-shirt printed with Minaj’s face ($890) underneath a silver bomber jacket ($6,500) and accessorized with a metallic hat ($1,290) and matching sneakers ($850).
“I want to make clothes that make girls with my body look sexy,” Minaj told Elle ahead of the release of her line, which is available globally today. “What I want [to tell] girls is not necessarily, ‘Go and gain weight and have a big booty,’ but ‘If you do have curves, be proud of it, flaunt it — love the skin you’re in.’”
Minaj and Petty obtained a marriage license in August and have one month to marry before it expires. Though the rapper said she will have a small legal ceremony and a larger party later on, she isn’t stressing over her dress or the details for the celebration.
“When I was little, I always imagined princess and marriage and the wedding and now it’s more to me about the life, the future, the love, the partnership, than the wedding,” she told Entertainment Tonight. “[It’s] so strange cause I didn’t expect myself to be one of those people who didn’t care about the hoopla, but I really don’t.”
Minaj made her romance with Petty Instagram official last December; their relationship began drawing criticism after it was revealed he was a registered sex offender and was convicted for the attempted rape of a 16-year-old girl.
The rapper has since changed her Twitter handle to “Mrs. Petty,” stated that she would retire to focus on building a family (and then took back the abrupt announcement) and rapped about their relationship in multiple recent songs, including “Fendi.”
Minaj did say that she has a “dope designer” for her wedding gown; all clues point to someone in the Fendi family.
