Nicki Minaj looks so beautiful. Here is what the brand had to say about the campaign:

“The tribal dance of Nicki Minaj enchants the lens, while the heat of the sun and the powerful colours inebriates the mind. The colours fire orange, blue, saffron yellow and green mirror the summer, a dance of energy that captivates and charms. A strong sensuality like a slight breeze goes through the dresses’ silhouette in silk georgette with animal and floral prints.”

And here is what the designer himself, Roberto Cavalli had to say:

“I chose Nicki Minaj because she embodies the exuberant and modern femininity of the Cavalli woman. 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.”

Congrats Nicki.

Fashion Vs. Function

11ca

Sometimes when I go shopping, I find myself picking practical pieces over fashionable ones. A low heel boots for example, will be a practical item to have this season rather than a high heel boots but that doesn’t stop most of us from splashing out fashionable items rather than going for more functional ones.

I believe it is very important to know when to strike a balance. Sacrificing comfort for the sake of fashion doesn’t sit well with me. I see girls struggling to walk in sky-high heels on a cold, wet day or when trying to catch a train. Why risk falling and hurting yourself (very embarrassing) just to look fashionable? Is it really worth it?

That said, I do have a couple of “fashion led” pieces in my wardrobe which I wear depending on where I am going to and how I am getting there, but most of my comfortable, practical pieces and footwear are what I wear on a daily basis. I have also decided to invest more in practical additions to my wardrobe. Do you have a fashionable or a functional wardrobe? Sound off in the comments section.
