THE EDIT: NICKI MINAJ IS THE NEW FACE OF ROBERTO CAVALLI

We’ve seen quite a few faces and angles of the talented Nicki Minaj and it seems that she once again has a few fashion forward tricks up her sleeve. The vibrant, always daring Minaj has caught the eye of industry Renaissance man, Roberto Cavalli as he’s confidently named her the newest face of the eponymous brand.

 Cavailli even shared a few words on precisely why Minaj was selected. “I chose Nicki Minaj because she embodies the exuberant and modern femininity of the Cavalli woman,” said Roberto Cavalli. “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 turns them into her strength.”

If strength is what Cavalli is looking for, he’s made a valid choice indeed. Known for her daring ensembles, racy lyrics, and sheer relentlessness, Minaj embodies everything that women are taught not to be. As we know, there’s nothing more fashionable than the unexpected.
