“New York, stand the f— up!” Nicki Minaj arrived at the 2024 Met Gala on Monday evening (May 6) looking like a floral fairy queen.

The 41-year-old rapper wore a golden yellow Marni minidress that resembled an oil painting and was adorned with 3-D multi-colored flowers. She completed her look with blunt bangs and an arched bubble ponytail that was held together by smaller flowers, plus a matching yellow purse and heels.

Minaj walked the red carpet accompanied by Francesco Risso, the creative director for Marni.

This year’s Met Gala celebrated the Costume Institute’s spring exhibition “Sleeping Beauties: Reawakening Fashion,” with the dress code being “The Garden of Time.” Bad BunnyJennifer LopezZendaya and Chris Hemsworth were this year’s co-hosts.

Minaj stopped by the Met Gala in the midst of her Pink Friday 2 World Tour, which will resume Wednesday at New Orleans’ Smoothie King Center. The international jaunt will begin its European leg on May 23 at Amsterdam’s Ziggo Dome. During her May 1 stop at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center on her Pink Friday 2 World Tour, Minaj brought out Cyndi Lauper to perform “Pink Friday Girls” for the first time together, which heavily samples the former’s 1983 anthem “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun.”

She released her last album Pink Friday 2 on Dec. 8 via Young Money and Republic Records, and it topped both the Billboard 200 and Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums, spending three weeks at No. 1 on the latter chart.
