From sequined jumpsuits to sultry red carpet-worthy outfits, Cardi B has proven herself a fashion goddess since her foray into stardom.
Hip hop artist Cardi B is a symbolic protege in the world of fashion thanks to her trailblazing outfits. Whether she’s keeping it simple in Tees and denim, or storming the red carpet in chic adornments, Cardi B’s style is always a show-stealer. Little wonder her head-to-toe ensembles always make it into high-end fashion magazines.
Fashion lovers have grown used to seeing the rap icon splashed across the TV screens and magazines. However, her taste in outfits never gets old. Amid her sea of iconic outfits, some of her dressings through the years have rightly qualified as her most memorable fashion moments.
1. CARDI B STOLE THE SHOW AT THE 2020 GRAMMYS
One notable time Cardi B’s fashion stole the show was at the 2020 Grammy Awards. The singer stormed the red carpets in a sultry flowing nude gown, alongside her spouse and fellow rapper, Offset.
The iconic Thierry Mugler sported shimmering crystal details lined vertically all around it. Its floor-length sleeves completed the dramatic outlook. Cardi B showed off her curves underneath the dress’s transparent fabrics, leaving little to the imagination.
Following the award show, the songstress broke the internet with photos of herself at the Grammy. The posts garnered nearly three million likes within a few hours.
2. ANOTHER GRAMMY SHOW-STEALER
The red carpet has presented Cardi B in some of her best wardrobe combinations, and the 2018 Grammys was no exception.
She graced the event in a white fur dress by Ashi Studio. The short gown featured a floor-length cape and sculptural sleeves, giving the young singer a custom fairy-like appearance.
Cardi B accentuated the outfit with silver bracelets on both wrists and a pair of white shoes.
3. CARDI B AT THE MET GALA
Again in 2018, the hip-hop star made the headlines for her appearance at the Met Gala. She donned a custom made pearl-adorned Moschino by Jeremy Scott complete with an ornate headpiece. Her traditional appearance synched with the Christianity-themed occasion.
4. GOING ALL RED
Cardi B never shies away from going all out when it comes to fashion. Her bold outfit at the Harpers Bazaar Icons’ party in 2018 showed off her breath-taking aura.
For the occasion, the beauty goddess wore a red, floor-length Dolce and Gabbana gown, highlighted with a giant gold neckpiece.
5. WHEN SUITS MATTER
Deviating from the usual trend of dinner gowns at red carpets and award shows, Cardi B radiated confidence in a monochrome outfit at the 2017 BET Award.
Dressed in a crimson suit, complete with matching purse and heels, the rapper captured hearts in the all-red ensemble.
6. FAR FROM SIMPLICITY
Even when she’s trying to keep it simple, Cardi B’s wardrobe choices reeks of class and glamour. Donning a white tuxedo-inspired gown in 2019, the rap icon proved her fashion style could never go wrong.
7. CARDI B AS THE QUEEN OF NEXT LEVEL COORDINATION
When it comes to coordinating outfits, no one does it better than the 27-year-old fashion icon. Be it an all-blue leather ensemble matched with a bag, or a head-to-toe vintage Channel adornment; she always ends up being the cynosure of all eyes.
Her biggest show-stealer so far was her all-paisley combo in August 2020. The singer shared a photo of herself in the classic summer outfit to her Instagram. The short gown by Natasha Zinko was a patchwork collection of bandanas made into the most coordinated outfit ever.
She also wove the paisley print fabrics into her long, braided ponytail. A customized pink Birkin Bag and white strappy sandals finished off the look.
8. CARDI B’S CAMPAIGN AS THE FACE OF BALENCIAGA
Cardi B’s influence in the fashion department eventually paid off in September 2020. The mother of one took to Instagram to announce her appointment as the new face of a Balenciaga Campaign.
The post featured an ad, which showed Cardi B in a long black dress, lying on a green carpet. Remarkably, the Balenciaga campaign not only made the front covers of magazines, but the ad made it to the Louvre in Paris!
Clearly, Cardi B has no rival when it comes to fashion, and she is set to retain her position as the fashion queen for several years to come.
