On Sunday, The “No Frauds” rapper perfomed at at Philipp Plein’s Spring/Summer ‘18 runway show. There, Minaj called out designers for appropriating black style, and also applauded the German designer for doing better with championing diversity.

“Thank you, Philipp Plein, for including our culture,” Nicki said. “Designers get really big and really rich off of our culture, and then you don’t see a motherf*c ker that look anything like us in the front row half the time. So let’s make some noise for Philipp Plein tonight.”

Unlike some designers, Plein has been acknowledging, and incorporating all types of people into his work for sometime now. Back in 2014, Plein casted only black models in his Spring show and ad campaign. He was also one of the first designers to have a transgender model to be included in his for Fall 2017, according to MTV.
