Many were expecting to see Nicki Minaj is some crazy concoction last night at the 2011 American Music Awards. After her recent costumes made out of stuffed animals, puff balls, or including hot pink pretzels and fried chicken — really, anything was possible.

It was so refreshing to see her take the stage to accept her award for “Favorite Rap/Hip-Hop Artist,” in this emerald silk taffeta gown with black battenburg lace and broderie anglaise bodice from the Spring/Summer 2012 collection by Oscar de la Renta.

Nicki was actually in attendance in September for Oscar’s runway show during New York Fashion Week! I wonder if she was planning on nabbing that look from day 1.

I’m so glad she wore the collar too!

I think if her hair was white, it would’ve looked cooler. But I will not hate on this, because that dress actually fit her very well. How great is the high/low full skirt that showed off her amazing “Armour” wedge heel sandals by Alexander McQueen?

Those sandals were actually so hard for her to walk in that when she won again for “Favorite Rap/Hip-Hop Album” for “Pink Friday”, she was spotted wearing Christian Louboutin‘s embellished “Daffodil” pumps.

Nicki opened the show with a performance of “Turn Me On” and “Super Bass” with DJ David Guetta.

She wore a custom futuristic metallic armor look by Johnny Wujek that featured a faux electric socket in the waist! Instead of uncomfortable shoes, she rocked silver high top sneakers. Smart.
