Nicki Minaj enjoys the reputation of being an outlandish dresser, with a still weirder sense of hair color!
The release of her latest photo shoot for Roberto Cavalli - the debonair Italian designer with an eponymous casual fashion label - is all set to change that reputation.
Shooting for the label’s spring/summer 2015 collection, Nicki poses in a range of colorful outfits in animal and floral designs. She also sports a rather retro looking hairdo - faintly reminiscent of the swinging sixties.
Roberto Cavalli explained that he chose Nicki Minaj because “she embodies the exuberant and modern femininity of the Cavalli woman.” He wanted to portray a “sensual woman who is aware of her body, who is not afraid to show her curves but rather make them her strength”.
The dresses that she wears clearly show that he chose well - the flowing gowns, mini dresses, jackets - all accentuate her curves and glamour. The makeup is simple, with beautifully highlighted eyes.
I don’t know why, but one of her images from the photo shoot - the one where she sports those fabulous, large, gem-encrusted glasses - reminds me of Sophia Loren!
