Nicki Minaj stars in Roberto Cavalli's Spring/Summer 15 campaign
Following Rita Ora's Cavalli campaign for Autumn/Winter 14, Italian designer Roberto Cavalli – who is currently facing speculation that his eponymous fashion label is for sale – has tapped another pop star, and this time its 32-year-old Nicki Minaj.
"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 counter trend message. I wanted a sensual woman who is aware of her body, who is not afraid to show her curves, rather she make them as a strength," Cavalli said of the new campaign.
