Rapper Nicki Minaj is the new face of the Italian fashion label Roberto Cavalli. The Spring/Summer 2015 campaign shoot features the bootylicious Black Barbie modelling the designerâ€™s signature print designs and flowing maxis.
â€œI 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 counter trend message. I wanted a sensual woman who is aware of her body â€“ who is not afraid to show her curves. Instead, she makes them her strength,â€ Roberto Cavalli said of Minaj.
