If you know anything about carnival, you know that less is more. Men and women pull out their brightest attire, which consists of a jeweled bra, matching thong, and tons of feathered accents. This event is a cultural phenomenon that unites people from the West Indies with the rest of the world.
For Trinidad Carnival 2020, Nicki Minaj showed up and showed out in an elaborate blue and purple ensemble. The Trini native made her people proud in her beautiful get-up.
