Nicki Minaj doesn't do subtlety often—but she should!

The rapper, known for her half-naked selfies as much as her music career, turned heads at Sunday's MTV Movie Awards when she walked the red carpet in a skintight black gown at the Nokia Theatre L.A. LIVE. Naturally, the Alexander McQueen design hugged her hourglass curves in all the right places.

The 31-year-old completed her look with gold jewelry and side-swept black and brunette waves. Get it, girl!

To no one's surprise, the former American Idol judge shared a series of sexy selfies on Instagram before she hit the red carpet.
