Nicki Minaj Lands Her First High Fashion Campaign

Insert 'Anaconda' pun here.

Nicki Minaj (and her bum — thanks to her meme-worthy single cover for "Anaconda") is having a really great year. Aside from just releasing her album "The Pinkprint," she has another impressive milestone to add to her 2014 resume: Italian fashion house Roberto Cavalli has just unveiled its spring 2015 ad campaign, which stars the rapper in a series of colorful, tribal-inspired images, shot by  Francesco Carrozzini. 

It makes sense that Minaj has just now nabbed her first high fashion campaign: Earlier this year, she made an effort to dial down her eccentric style, retiring her technicolor wigs and out-there ensembles. Plus, we love that she's showing off her very famous curves in the shots, which is partially why Cavalli chose her as a face of the brand in the first place. "In recent years we have become accustomed to women castigated in clothes that hide their body shapes," the designer said in a press release. "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." Although, it seems worth mentioning that her already unreal proportions do seem to be enhanced by excessive Photoshop.

Also, a fun fact: a snake is one of the symbols of the house of Cavalli. We'll let you insert your own "Anaconda" pun here. Click through to see the full campaign.
