Turning a bit to the side, the star flashed an ample amount of underboob.
She added another dash of sparkle with silver stiletto heels.
For beauty Nicki went with a goddess-like glow, pairing dewy skin with rosy cheeks and a pink pout.
A sharp black manicure continued to tie the look together.
She gave fans a glimpse of her appearance on Colbert with a backstage Instagram besides the host, who was holding a banana.
‘This [banana emoji] tho? Tune in tonight to the @ColbertLateShow – should I create a special edition of #BarbieDreams for him?’ Nicki wrote in the caption.
