oberto Cavalli has announced Nicki Minaj as the face of the new Spring/Summer 2015 advertising campaign.
Congrats on the new gig, Nicki! The Anaconda star looks absolutely gorgeous in the ad campaign photos – shot in Los Angeles by photographer Francesco Carrozzini.
The rather romantic prose on the press release reads:
“The tribal dance of Nicki Minaj enchants the lens, while the heat of the sun and the powerful colours inebriates the mind. The colours fire orange, blue, saffron yellow and green mirror the summer, a dance of energy that captivates and charms. A strong sensuality like a slight breeze goes through the dresses’ silhouette in silk georgette with animal and floral prints.”
Talking about why he chose Nicki Minaj, Roberto Cavalli said: “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, rather she make them as a strength.”
