Nicki Minaj tones down for EMAs

Nicki Minaj relaxed her appearance at the 2014 MTV EMAs last night.

The 31-year-old star toned down her usually kooky appearance for last night’s ceremony in Glasgow, Scotland, opting for a simple little strapless black dress. Her long flawless legs were put on display and she accessorised with matching dark heels.

Nicki’s raven hair completed the polished look, with a blunt fringe framing her face while the rest of her tresses were worn down and straight. The only splash of colour visible was the singer’s bright red lips and she didn’t even boast any jewellery, adding to the simple look.

She hosted the evening and also won the Best Hip-Hop artist award, surprising the audience by stepping out in several different outfits before rocking her LBD in the press room.

With her different ensembles came different weaves. One look was a white Cavalli dress with cut-out panels at the side and Nicki went for long tumbling curls with a middle parting, while in a strapless red number with a structured skirt she swapped for a shorter hairstyle which ended at her shoulders.

Other big stars also attended the annual event, such as Ariana Grande. The star scooped two awards last night, including beating Nicki to win Best Female, and she swapped her iconic ponytail for long neat locks. Her black dress featured unusual cut-outs over the neck and ribcage, along with a striking backless finish.

She also swapped for the stage, stepping into a light blue bodysuit as she performed.

Heavily pregnant Alicia Keys put her baby bump on display in a gorgeous glittery number as she presented Ariana with her Best Song award for Problem ft. Iggy Azalea and she also gave a rendition of her song We Are Here.
