Winnie Harlow was recognized by the fashion world yesterday.
Nicki Minaj and Winnie Harlow subsequently posted the same image of them posing at the Daily Front Row's Fashion Media Awards held at the Park Hyatt in New York on Thursday night. The NY rapper was on hand to watch her friend take away the "Breakthrough Model Of The Year" title ahead of a steady stream of candidates.
Not only was Nicki Minaj on hand to support her friend, she even handed Winnie the award on stage. The "Breakthrough Model Of The Year" was one many awards handed out to the field of nominees, accounting for the last 12-months of industry activity. Winnie thanked her friend Nicki for making the trip to NYC (yes, Nicki has abandoned ship) by way of Los Angeles. "Wow.. I can’t believe you did this. NickiMinaj you came all the way to NYC to present me with BreakThrough Model of the Year award at DailyFrontRow," wrote Harlow on Instagram following the special occasion.
Winnie showed up to the Gala in a backless silver dress that showed off her slender figure. Nicki Minaj did acquit herself too, in an Alexander McQueen dress, which proved quite the traffic hazard, as you can see below.
