Between the minimalist makeup and the center-parted long dark locks, I seriously looked at this and thought, for a second, “Oh, look, Toni Braxton.”

It’s uncanny. But it’s also really… boring. I’m all for her features having a chance to shine, but she’s almost SO aggressively trying to downplay her natural quirk — in service of what, being a “serious actress” in the future? — that it’s making her kind of a blank. Embrace the middle ground, Nicki. And embracelet yourself.
