Rapper Nicki Minaj posted Instagram photos of the plunging red Alexander McQueen gown she wore to her brother Jelani Maraj's wedding Saturday at Coral House in Baldwin. But her stylist apparently had an $11,000 Emilio Pucci backup that inadvertently got left behind.

"Someone called the coat-check woman asking about this dress," said Butch Yamali, whose Dover Group owns Coral House. "But they didn't leave a name. Then someone named Rushka Bergman" -- a fashion editor for Vogue Italia who is also Minaj's stylist -- "called saying she was sending someone over. I said no one's getting the dress till I know it's going to the right person, and she got very heated with me over the phone."

Minaj's management eventually gave Yamali the go-ahead to release it to her, he said.
