Nicki Minaj's new video for "Your Love" came out yesterday, and it's a blast from the East! It was packed with Eastern-inspired outfits (think silky kimonos and black ninja catsuits) and extra-long Wolverine-style nails. It looked like Madame Butterfly meets Jackie Chan, only with extra sparkles and higher heels. And those outfits didn't land on Miss Minaj by accident — they were expertly calculated by Nicki's styling team led by Niki Schwan, and assisted by Adrien Field, Maeve Reilly, and Quentin. Today we caught up with Schwan for details on every single outfit in the video. See all the hand-picked designer looks and what Schwan had to say about Nicki's style below!

Schwan on Nicki's style: "Nicki has a great sense of personal style. She's developing her platform. To be part of her team to help mold her and her image has been great. Now we've gotten to a point where she can push the envelope a lot more. And we're going through a beautiful transition where she wants to keep unique edge and she wants to step it up. She wants to be sexier and more classic."
