She last blew our minds as a futuristic life-sized Barbie. Here, she trades in her usually revealing looks for a long red tied dress from Calvin Klein’s 205W39NYC Spring/Summer 2018 ready-to-wear collection and sleeked back low bun styled by Kim Kimble.

“In the last few years, a new generation of designers has been shaking up storied fashion houses,” the glossy wrote on Instagram. “From Maria Grazia Chiuri at Dior to Anthony Vaccarello at Saint Laurent and more, these designers aren’t interested in blithely looking back, and we celebrate them this month by photographing their spring 2018 collections on an equally compelling cast of characters.”

The magazine called Nicki a game-changing prodigy by “being fearlessly adaptive” in rise to the top. “Transforming, to me, means changing for the better based on your experiences,” she responded. “I’m equipped to be a better boss now.”
