She's know for her eye-catching, bold fashion flare - but Nicki Minaj was not ready for her close-up as she arrived at the airport last night.
The curvaceous rapper kept her head down and had her shades firmly in place as she stalked through LAX Airport in Los Angeles in a suitably garish outfit.
Nicki, 29, was accompanied by her boyfriend and assistant Safaree Samuels.
She was clad in a pair of retro print leggings, teamed with a red leather jacket, Ugg boots.
Nicki has lent her name to MAC's ultra-altruistic Viva Glam range, for which all profits from make-up sold go to HIV and AIDS charities.
The star has designed a vibrant pink lipstick for the line, and has spoken out about her delight to be involved in the project.
She has said: ‘When I was chosen by MAC cosmetics to be the next Viva Glam spokesperson, I wanted to hug everyone that worked at MAC for giving me this opportunity.
'I've always wanted to be a Viva Glam girl.'
