The year of 2014 belongs to Nicki Minaj. With her new album The Pinkprint out, the rapper-actress-mogul is closing the year off with a bang, appearing as the face of Roberto Cavalli’s Spring/Summer 2015 campaign. “I am so honored to be the face of the new #RobertoCavalliSS15 campaign,” said Nicki, who posted photos from the vibrant photo shoot on Instagram.

The Queen Barbz is seen modeling various beautiful garments, in shades of black, white, navy, red, and peach. Shot by Francesco Carrozzini, Roberto Cavalli spoke on choosing the Young Money rapper as the face of his new campaign. “I chose Nicki Minaj because she embodies the exuberant and modern femininity of the Cavalli woman,” said the 74-year-old Italian designer. “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 make them as a strength.”

wale festivus

Wale is looking to make a big splash in 2015 with the release of his fourth LP, The Album About Nothing, and the start of his Simply Nothing tour. But before all that, the MMG rapper is set to end the year on a high by dropping a new mixtape with A-Trak titled Festivus — yet another nod to his favorite show, Seinfeld — on December 23 (obviously). Not only his first full-length release of the year, the project will also mark a reunion of sorts between Wale and Fool’s Gold Records after teaming up with the label’s other founder, Nick Catchdubs, on 2008’s The Mixtape About Nothing.

That’s all we know for now, but you can check out a teaser trailer for the forthcoming project below.
