From Diamond Princess to Queen of Miami: See Trina’s Style Evolution Through the Years

Two decades of looks from Da Baddest B*tch.

After 20 years in the game, Trina’s style has gone through several iterations of slayage. Miami’s queen of rap did away with the booty shorts, midriff tops and keyhole cutouts that defined the early 2000s. These days, she’s on her grown and sexy tip with pantsuits and big bold prints. Through it all, she’s maintained that vibrant Miami flair we all know and love her for.
