Nicki took to Instagram to showoff the first looks from the campaign. The 60s sheek styles were photographed in LA by Francesco Carrozzini.

When asked, ‘why Nicki as the new face,” Roberto Cavalli commented:

“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. Instead, she makes them her strength.”

The, Bed of Lies artist follows behind Rita Ora, the 2014 face of Roberto Cavalli.
