The Italian fashion designer Roberto Cavalli has signed on American musician Nicki Minaj to front his Spring/Summer 2015 advertising campaign.
Shot in Los Angeles by photographer Francesco Carrozzini, the advertorial images showcase the rapper in several 70s inspired, silk georgette made outfits in different shapes and with exquisite floral and animal prints.
Based on a palette of fiery orange, beige, blue, saffron yellow and green hues, the exotic pieces include a mini-dress with geometric patterns, a floor-length summer dress decorated with red and green tropical motifs and a plunging neckline, as well as a zebra-print maxi with thigh-high split.
Known for creating the sand-blasted look on jeans and striking prints on clothes, the 74-year-old Florentine designer Cavalli specialises in menswear, womenswear, childrenswear and lingerie.
The 32-year-old Trinidad and Tobago-born singer-songwriter Minaj owns a fashion line with the Illinois-based discount chain Kmart.
Founded in 1962, Kmart is the third largest discount chain in the world, with stores in the United States, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and Guam.
