Is Nicki Minaj channeling Paris Hilton?
On Monday, the rapper was spotted outside the Montage Hotel in Beverly Hills wearing a pair of Philipp Plein thigh-high gladiator boots — the same pair Paris Hilton modeled in the designer’s spring ’17 runway show in September 2016.
The leather sandals feature gold feline heads up the center and retail for $2,588.

Minaj wore the sandals with a a Medusa-inspired dress by Charbel Zoe. While we’re not exactly sure what Minaj was up to, it seems she was filming a music video. She recently shot the video for her track “No Frauds” in London, but she could be filming additional footage in L.A. Her stylist, Maher Jridi, captioned a photo of Minaj with this line from the song: “Soon as i wake up keep an eye out for the snakes,” which would explain the Medusa dress.
On her Instagram, Minaj teased her followers when she wrote, “Another day another slay. Guess what we’re shooting today?”
Only time will tell.
