The “WAP” rapper made another unforgettable fashion statement while attending the 2022 Met Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC on May 2.
On the red carpet, the Grammy winner wowed in a custom Versace gown, which had her dripping in gold chains from head-to-toe. The heavy-metal creation hugged Cardi’s famous curves and featured a cut-out sweetheart neckline and cut-out back. She accessorized with a gold choker detailing with Versace’s signature medusa pendant and gloves, also covered in chains.
In 2019, she wowed yet again in a campy and extravagant ruby red gown featuring a larger-than-life skirt, feathered shoulders and a beaded cap. And who could forget the dazzling ruby nipple covers that cost—wait for it—$250,00…each!
According to Vogue, the hand-embroidered Thom Browne dress was adorned with 30,000 feathers and took more than 2,000 hours to execute.
“I designed this dress for Cardi specifically because she has the ultimate beauty in a woman’s body,” Browne told the mag, “and that is what the dress is about for me: taking advantage of that beauty.”
