Nicki Minaj Stars in H&M’s ‘Magical Holiday’ Film
Nicki Minaj and Jesse Williams bring a Christmas fairytale to life in “A Magical Holiday.”
Directed by Johan Renck, the 3-minute long short film stars Nicki as a mother and fairy named Wisest Thingy, while Williams takes on the roles of dad and Fastest Fairy. Actor John Turturro plays Santa Claus and St. Nick’s evil brother.
In the midst of this star-studded clip, a courageous young lady finds the spirit of Christmas by going into an alternate universe, where she has to confront Santa Claus’ evil brother. “I love the film’s over all empowering message,” said Nicki. “I love seeing this young girl become the champion that lives in all of us. There’s always magic in the air during the holidays.”
Pernilla Wohlfahrt, H&M’s Head of Design and Creative Director, added: “It’s exciting to see our festive designs come to life together with such inspirational talents. They definitely added some extra magic to the film and we hope that our customers will love how the fashion is presented throughout the holiday season at H&M.”
Up next, Minaj and H&M will unveil a 12-piece collection, which was inspired at least in part by the Young Money queen’s love of Japanese culture, according to Fashionista. The line will be released Nov. 30.
