Nicki holds up NYFW

Nicki Minaj turned up 45 minutes late to the Jeremy Scott show in New York yesterday donning an ensemble from her own clothing line.

The Starships hitmaker showed off her diva behaviour when she held up the entire show because she didn't turn up on time.

When the singer finally did arrive with her boyfriend Safaree Samuels, she sported a black fitted long-sleeved top with a golden circle pattern and matching tight trousers. The figure-hugging ensemble is from her own range for Kmart.

American fashion writer Derek Blasberg shared his frustration at the delay of the event, held at Milk Studios, with an angry post on Twitter.

"@NickiMinaj's team just made everyone get off an elevator so she could ride alone, which is the douchiest thing I've seen at #nyfw So Far (sic)" he complained.

Nicki wasn't the only famous name in the audience of the show.

Socialite sisters Paris and Nicky Hilton also continued their fun during the biannual event. Both dressed with a hint of leather to match the edgy new ensembles from the designer's Spring/Summer 14 collection.

Rapper A$AP Rocky was spotted getting cosy with model Chanel Iman in the crowds amid rumours he is dating pop star Rihanna.

On the same day as Jeremy Scott's show, The Hills and Laguna Beach star Kristin Cavallari showed off her curating skills at the Junk Food presents NFL/Elements runway show.

The collection is aimed at female football fans after being inspired by her husband, Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler.

Speaking to, the reality star recalled how she teamed up with the line.

“Junk Food actually came to me, and it’s been a ton of fun fusing the elements of the NFL with trendy chic runway looks," she explained. "I was as involved as they’d let me be. I went through all of sketches with them and they were really great with listening to me and keeping me involved with everything. Just because you’re a football fan doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice fashion and style.”

Other stars spotted enjoying the fashion yesterday included The Newsroom beauty Olivia Munn, who wowed in a backless black maxi dress at a Sunglasses Hut event. The actress was joined by the likes of Anna Sophia Robb and model Georgia May Jagger at the exclusive bash.

Fashion house Marchesa also had a host of A-list guests in the front row, including Petra Nemcova, Olivia Palermo, Sheryl Crow and Courtney Love.
