Nicki Minaj has been appointed to front the Spring/Summer 2015 advertising campaign for Roberto Cavalli.

“I chose Nicki Minaj because she embodies the exuberant and modern femininity of the Cavalli woman,” Roberto said in a statement. “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,”

Nicki posed for the fashion shoot in Los Angeles for famed photographer Francesco Carrozzini.

During a round of “Plead the Fifth,” in which Cohen asked three questions with only one veto allowed, Minaj revealed little more. “You were on Beyoncé’s ‘***Flawless’ remix, which was really the only time she’s commented publicly on the elevator mishegas. What can you tell me about what you know about what went on in that elevator?” he asked.

kim kardashian,Kim Kardashian is opening up about her body image, her insecurities and the nude pics of her that hit the web recently.

She graces the covers of Elle UK‘s January Confidence issue, and she’s gotten real candid about struggling with the way she looked growing up.

As a teenager, she was unhappy about her body and appearance. Nevertheless, it was her FATHER, Robert Kardashian, who wrote her a letter when she was 13 inspiring her to become the confident woman she is today.

“He told me I had a body not many girls have,” Kardashian said, “[and] that later it would lead to attention from men, but that the most important thing was that I was a wonderful girl and I had to understand my self worth.”

“I am a confident woman, but I didn’t just arrive confident,” she added. “It has built over the years and that is a big part of who I am now.”

But with a sex tape that made her famous, leaked nudes and a nude magazine spread — Kardashian hasn’t shied away from showing off her “assets.”

“I’m on covers of magazines practically naked, so I can’t go crazy about it,” she said. “The only choice I can make is to not let it shake me up.”

Halle Berry to Relaunch French Lingerie Line Scandale

scandale paris halle berry

Halle Berry is looking to promote femininity, sexiness and self-empowerment…through a line of undergarments.

According to Fox411, the Oscar-winning actress is reviving Scandale, a lingerie label born in France in 1932.

“We’ve taken this brand and revamped it,” Berry said in an interview Thursday. “But we’ve kept all the qualities of the Parisian sort of style intact.”

The collection of 10 bras and panties will be sold by Target, and while “rich with history and heritage,” will boast “a very good price,” said Berry, who, beneath her lacy dress displayed a black Illusion demi bra (less than $20).

Berry is an owner of the Scandale Paris line, launching here in 2015, and said she plays a hands-on role in design, declaring, “I think I have a pulse on what American women want.”

She agreed that, for guys, the choice of undergarments is largely a question of boxers or briefs. “But most women know that what you put under your clothes is the first step in making yourself feel good about yourself.”

Women buy lingerie mainly for themselves, she went on, quickly adding, “When they find something they feel good in, and that makes them feel sexy and feminine and empowered, their partners also reap the benefits.”

Berry also discussed her television debut over the summer in CBS’ sci-fi series “Extant.” For this film veteran, series TV, with its faster-than-film pace and longer-than-film hours, was “a rude awakening,” she confessed. But now she’s braced to resume production for next season in February.

Despite the excitement her entry into series TV ignited, reviews for “Extant” were mixed and ratings less than spectacular.

“That was disappointing, you might say,” she admitted, “but at least we got picked up. I think we learned a lot from the first season.”

She noted that many series take time to break through into long-running hits.

“I hope that will be our case,” she said.
