When Nicki Minaj first showed up on the rap scene she had everyone on notice with her outrageous outfits and out-of-this-world hairstyles. These days, she’s much more subdued than when we first met her (with rainbow hair and the like), but she still makes fashionable impressions when she hits up award shows, red carpets and events.

On Sunday, the Young Money rapper was awarded the Fashion Rebel award at Daily Front Row's 3rd Annual Fashion Los Angeles Awards held at Sunset Tower Hotel. Donning a black sleeveless Versace vest dress and lace up Versace boots, the “No Frauds” rapper hit the stage to accept her award with a few words of empowerment for women.

"We all have insecurities," she said. "I want to say, shout-out to all of the kick-a** women, not only in this room, but all around the world. You know what, we win and fail in the public eye. That's not easy to do. People think they know what it requires. People think they can do it. Everybody wants to walk in your shoes, until you put them in your shoes."

She continued by giving props to women everywhere for their confidence and strength and opened up about smiling through all of the hate she receives on a daily.

"It takes guts, it takes balls to fail and to make mistakes in the public eye, and to read s**tty comments about yourself every f**king day and to still have a beautiful f**king smile on your f**king face," she said. "I love you guys so much for believing in me. I took some time off to rest, and now it's game time, b*tches."

As Nicki made her rounds, she bumped into Kanye West’s wife Kim Kardashian West (who rocked a custom Givenchy gown), singer-songwriter Fergie (who presented her the award) and fashion photographer Mert Alas:

"Empire" and "Star" co-creator Lee Daniels was in the mix and whatever he was saying had Nicki’s full attention.  New projects for her in the works?
