Proving her love for Fendi doesn’t just span to her “Chun-Li” music lyrics, the R&B star donned a number of the outfits from the 127-piece collection.
The outspoken singer flaunted her hourglass figure in a glistening mirrored midi skirt, silver push-up bra and jacket.
Meanwhile in another snap, the glamorous star embraced her curvaceous figure and toned legs in a hot pink one-shoulder swimming costume as she posed on a diving board.

She told Elle: “I ended up saying, ‘Fendi prints on,’ just freestyling. I didn’t write that lyric down; I was just having fun.”
Nicki went on to talk about her love for all things Fendi, admitting she feels “glamorous” in their clothes.
The singer added: “Certain brands have always been sought after, because we’d hear rappers rap about them all our lives, and we think that these brands signify some sort of success in life.
“And then, when you’re able to actually a afford them, it feels like, ‘Wow, I’ve accomplished one of my goals, at least in the fashion world.’
