Nicki Minaj Named the Face of Roberto Cavalli’s 2015 Spring/Summer Advertising Campaign

Nicki Minaj is ending the year on a high note. After bursting firmly back onto the scene with her monster single “Anaconda,” the provocative rapper has now been tapped to be the face of Roberto Cavalli’s 2015 Spring/Summer campaign. With her brazen, rebellious style, Nicki was considered a kindred spirit to Cavalli, the perfect embodiment of what the brand calls “the exuberant and modern femininity of the Cavalli woman.” Shot by photographer Francesco Carrozzini, the campaign fully captures Nicki’s fearless spirit, utilizing bold animal and floral prints, eye-catching summer colors, and striking silhouettes that proudly showcase Nicki’s world-famous curves. With this campaign, Cavalli wanted to publicly oppose the current trend towards feminine modesty – that’s why Nicki was the brand’s top choice. “In recent years we have become accustomed to women castigated in clothes that hide their body shapes,” says Cavalli. “I wanted a sensual woman who is aware of her body, who is not afraid to show her curves.” In that regard, there’s no question Nicki was the right choice.
