After an October cover for L’Uomo Vogue, followed by an editorial shoot in this month’s Vogue Italia, news broke earlier today that the Anaconda rapper is the face of the Roberto Cavalli spring/summer 2015 campaign.
The campaign images that she just release via Instagram were shot in LA by Italian photographer Francesco Carrozzini, see Minaj posing in flowy bohemian dresses, defined by embroideries and animal prints typical of the Cavalli brand.
“I chose Nicki Minaj because she embodies the exuberant and modern femininity of the Cavalli woman. In recent years we have become accustomed to women castigated in clothes that hide their body shapes. With this campaign, I wanted to send a strong countertrend message. I wanted a sensual woman who is aware of her body – who is not afraid to show her curves. Instead, she makes them her strength,” Roberto Cavalli concludes with regard to casting the Trinidad and Tobago-born hip hop mogul.
