Nicki Minaj Stars In Roberto Cavalli Campaign Video


Italian fashion designer Roberto Cavalli was pleased to announce Nicki Minaj as the face of his Spring/Summer 2015 Advertising Campaign last month, and he appears to have been the right decision. Cavalli released the promotional video yesterday (Jan. 12), which features the undisputed songstress in a kaleidoscopic whirl of tribal colors.

Among snapshots captured by esteemed photographer Francesco Carrozzini, the Trinidadian beauty posed in a variety of flowing dresses that embraced animal and floral print fabrics set in a ’70s-esque photo shoot. Famous for her provocations and rebellious flare, Minaj embodied strong sensuality and confidence in an exquisitely dreamy video produced by Chris Charlton, Tommy Moore & Matt Crum.

“I chose Nicki Minaj because she embodies the exuberant and modern femininity of the Cavalli woman,” Cavalli said. “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, rather she make them as a strength.”

Watch the advertising Campaign video below, and catch the full documentary, titled Nicki Minaj: My Time AGAIN, when it airs on Sunday (Jan. 18) at 10 p.m. on MTV!
