LAS VEGAS, May 19 (UPI) -- Nicki Minaj
arrived to Sunday night's 2014 Billboard Music Awards in a risque black cut-out dress by Alexander McQueen
The 31-year-old rapper accessorized her outfit with gold jewelry and natural makeup. Her whole look was reminiscent of the toned down attire she wore to the MTV Movie Awards in early April, which was also a far cry from the singer's usual colorful wigs and elaborate makeup.

While talking to reporters at the event's red carpet Minaj said her upcoming third album, The Pinkprint, would come out "before 2015."
The 2014 Billboard Music Awards took place at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas and featured performances by Katy Perry, Shakira, Florida Georgia Line, Ariana Grande, Iggy Azalea and others.
