If ever there was one person meant to take over the 2019 Met Gala, it’s Cardi B.
On Monday night’s pink carpet, the “Be Careful” rapper, 26, stole the show in an oversized red Thom Browne gown that featured feathers, a bedazzled swim cap and layers of fabric that accentuated her breasts and body.
The enormous train was sewn into round circles and splayed out yards behind the star, inspiring people on Twitter to compare the fabric to a sleeping bag; despite some confusion, this year’s camp theme does not refer to tents and s’mores, but rather flamboyance and pushing boundaries.
However, many others immediately hailed Cardi as this year’s best dressed, which should come as no surprise. Ever since she lit up the charts with her debut single “Bodak Yellow,” Cardi B has been wearing more and more outrageous clothing, including the Botticelli-inspired vintage Thierry Mugler couture look she chose for the 2019 Grammy Awards.
