There's something special about a woman who brings in her 29th birthday with a kiss from Madonna. That's just one of the special moments Nicki Minaj has experienced during 2011, and as she turns a year older today (Dec. 8), the animated MC is sure to reflect on her accomplishments.

She's nabbed a nomination for Best New Artist at the 2012 Grammy Awards, had a Barbie doll created in her likeness for charity, scored a feature on Drake's 'Take Care' album with 'Make Me Proud,' appeared on the cover of Cosmopolitan magazine, showed off her rhyming skills while filming her cameo in Madonna's 'Give Me All Your Love' video and released the first track, 'Roman in Moscow,' off her sophomore LP, 'Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded,' which debuts Feb. 14, 2012.

Those are just a few in the long list of triumphs for the Queens native, a woman whose style has transformed from lackluster department store finds to one-of-a-kind jaw-dropping ensembles over the years. Her wigs are showcased in every color of the rainbow and her attire is a meld of form-fitting extravagance and revealing fashions. Check out 15 of the rapper's style selections, dating back to 2009. This is one femme fatale with a penchant for pink.
