(AllHipHop News) Rap star Nicki Minaj is still on cloud nine after living out her dream of working with fashion guru Karl Lagerfeld for a new magazine shoot.
The "No Frauds" hitmaker landed the opportunity to pose for the Chanel creative director himself for the new cover of America's Elle magazine, and for Nicki, it was a career highlight.
"I can take (shooting w| (with) Karl Lagerfeld) off my bucket list now. Thank you @elleusa," she captioned a snap of the Elle cover posted to her Instagram page.
Nicki went on to share a handful of other images from the set online, and confessed she and her hair stylist Kim Kimble had struggled to hide their excitement after Lagerfeld suggested Kimble stay in the frame for one shot too.
"We contained ourselves in front of him then walked to the back & started screaming & spazzing (freaking) out," Nicki explained of a snap in which Kimble is shown tending to the MC's floor-length extensions. "She was thrilled!"
The rapper reveals she was brought to tears by the stunning experience, which took place in Lagerfeld's studio in Paris, France.
"When you're being shot in #CHANEL by Lagerfeld," she wrote beside a picture of herself perched on a stool wearing a fitted tuxedo by the luxury label. "Ummm nope, I'm not crying, you are."
In a behind-the-scenes video clip, Nicki couldn't stop gushing about how much the get together meant to her.
"This whole experience feels surreal," she said. "He is like, my number one fashion icon, idol, inspiration, everything. I just cannot get over this."
