Nicki Minaj broke into the hip-hop scene following her bullet-speed rap delivery and outlandish sense of style, but who knew the 32-year-old could also inspire an international high fashion campaign?
While stylewatchers agree that her personal style has evolved over the years, Nicki continues to evoke a more sophisticated image as the new face of Roberto Cavalli’s 2015 Spring/Summer collection.
Cutting a demure look, Nicki poses gracefully in Cavalli’s signature safari-inspired prints and contrasting florals.
The campaign,which was shot by acclaimed Italian photographer Francesco Carrozini, shows a side of the usually-ghetto fabulous Nicki her fans had never seen before.
Acclaimed designer Roberto Cavalli said of his new choice of model: “I chose Nicki Minaj because she embodies the exuberant and modern femininity of the Cavalli woman.”
With this campaign, Nicki joins the ranks of female pop stars whoâ€™ve become the faces for high-end brands; notable examples include Rihanna for Balmain and Lady Gaga for Versace.MYNEWSHUB
