Nicki Minaj! After posting some (surprisingly classy) photoshoot snaps to her Instagram earlier this week, Minaj has officially been named the new face of Roberto Cavalli’s Spring/Summer 2015 ad campaign. Shot by Francesco Carrozzini, Minaj is rocking a sixties-inspired bouffant hairdo, and is donning flowy, boldly-hued (very Cavalli) gowns.
“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,” Cavalli himself told Forbes magazine.
Though we have seen Minaj start to take on a more grown-up style, will this very high-fashion campaign inspire Minaj to put her powdered wig days behind her for good? Who knows, maybe Minaj will be the next Marilyn?
