Why did the queen of hip-hop decide on H&M for her Met Gala look? Apparently, her personal stylist Maher Jridi teamed up with H&M and created this fully dramatic gown. Nicki revealed that her personal stylist is not the only person who teamed up with H&M, announcing her own collaboration with the brand, and saying that she is working on a Special Fall 2017 Collection.

Nicki’s fans will be extremely impatient to put their hands on something that has her personal touch. H&M has also collaborated with The Weekend for their Spring 2017 Collection. About her Met Gala 2017 outfit Nicki explained: “Partnering with H&M has been an incredible and unique experience. The look we have created is so special to me and I’m looking forward to sharing this moment with everyone. Together with the H&M design team, we embodied the theme from the dramatic train to Kawakubo’s face. It’s truly inspiring!” Nicki seemed very satisfied with her Met Gala outfit and even mentioned that her dress “is more comfortable than it looks.”
