Style Scoop: Nicki Minaj Is The Face Of Roberto Cavalli, #NYFW Got Kicked Out Of Lincoln Center, Dov Charney Still Has Some Supporters


Nicki Minaj is bringing her assets to Roberto Cavalli—and it’s a perfect match for a few reasons. The most notable, of course, is that the Anaconda is one of the brand’s iconic symbols. To the designer, the rapper “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.” [Glam Inbox]

Luxury and ready-to-wear e-commerce site My-Wardrobe has shut down its online operations and sold its URL to Net-a-Porter. The site now redirects to Net-a-Porter, The Outnet and Mr Porter. A rep for Net-a-Porter said that the British e-commerce site didn’t completely acquire My-Wardrobe—rather, it only gained some of its assets. It’s unclear what will happen to the brick-and-mortar My-Wardrobe store, which opened in London this summer. [Fashionista]

Just when you thought the Victoria’s Secret army of models was finished for the season, they resurface with some sexy holiday cheer.

Google, of course, can provide you with how-to’s on many of them, including an entire video from Nordstrom demonstrating how to tie four scarves in 16 different ways. [InStyle]
