Everyone is talking about the American rapper, Cardi B’s massive return from the shadows, since welcoming her second child with her husband Offset. Cardi B rolled up to Paris for Fashion Week. And since she touched down in the ‘City of Love’, the 28-year-old rapper has served up some seriously amazing looks.
And boy did the Bacardi rapper turn heads.
From golden nipple embellishments to coats that could quite literally kill, it’s easy to understand why.
Belcalis Almanzar, known professionally as Cardi B, is an American rapper whose hometown is New York City. Born and raised in The Bronx, she first attracted attention for discussing her career as a stripper on social media; coupled with her “no filter attitude”, she became an internet celebrity through Instagram.
Not only is the millionaire popular for her singing, but the “WAP” performer also has a style that is truly unmatched.
Cardi B knows how to slay the fashion game! The Grammy winner stepped out recently at Paris Fashion Week at the Thierry Mugler show. Making a return after giving birth to her son – with his name yet to be released.
From New York to London, Milan and now Paris, fashion lovers, models and designers are already enjoying a taste of luxury in France for Paris Fashion Week 2021.
The official schedule for the spring/summer 2022 collections started on September 28 and will end on October 5 2021.
Paris Fashion Week has one of the most important Fashion Week schedules since it’s home to many great designers and shows you don’t want to miss. Think of Louis Vuitton, Off-White, Hermès, Chanel, Givenchy and many more.
This year, the couple were exclusively invited to attend Tuesday’s opening party for the exhibition Couturissime at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs (MAD) in Paris, hosted by L’Oréal.
This event was held by director and fashion demi-god, Thierry Mugler, who owns the luxury fashion brand – Mugler.
Scroll through Mugler’s Instagram to see all the stars who joined his opening exhibition for Paris Fashion Week 2021:
More than 150 pieces, designed by Mugler from 1973 to 2014, are included in the exhibition. This went along with photography, perfumes, music videos, fembots and more.
However, it wasn’t just Cardi B who made an appearance. Former models and muses like Farida Khelfa and Carla Bruni; designers like Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren, Riccardo Tisci, Haider Ackermann, Jean Charles de Castelbajac, Christian Louboutin and many more stars were spotted inside.
Of course, this isn’t the first time that Cardi B has gone all out for the Paris Fashion Week. In the past, she has been spotted wearing a slew of outrageous outfits.
According to Hollywood Life, in 2019 Cardi was literally covered up in green flowers as she rocked a Richard Quinn AW19 ensemble featuring an oversized jacket with a cinched-in belt, matching pointed high boots, and a floral face mask that covered her head, making her completely unrecognizable.
It seems that Cardi B simply just creates her very own runway and why not? She has been killing the style game ever since.
Nylon stated that Cardi B has yet to make an official runway show appearance, but she’ll likely sit front row for Balenciaga and Chanel. In the meantime, she’s been living her best “Cardi in Paris” life and dressed to the nines, thanks to her long time friend and stylist Kollin Carter.
At the Paris Fashion Week, Cardi B has been spotted shopping, partying, and at dinner, touring around with her husband Offset. Every night so far the star has given us a different look for every occasion.
Here are the star’s wildest looks that are turning heads at the yearly event:
1. The Ravishing Ruby Red Tribute
The rapper stunned on the red carpet in an elaborate Fall 1994 look from the Mugler archives. On 28 September 2021, she went for an over-the-top red Mugler creation with a glittering gown that featured a dramatic cape and large feathers surrounding her head. She was dripping in red ruby jewels and even had them dotted along her eyebrows.
2. The Squeeze Me Please Black Bodysuit
Later that night Cardi B changed into a second all-black Mugler look. She wore a leather bodysuit that looked like a sheer black dress, which was layered under a black bustier. This was connected to a mesh skirt.
3. The Tweed Golden Crown Moment
The couple were both outfitted in Schiaparelli ensembles before heading to a party in Paris on Wednesday, September 29. Cardi B wore a futuristic look that features gold chest pieces and a golden eye-piece that covers most of her head.
4. A Classy French Oh La La!
Later that night she then changed into an all-black Schiaparelli look that had a plunging neckline and French beret.
5. A Punk-Rock Inspired Spike Edition
On Thursday, Sept. 30, Cardi B made a stop at the Balenciaga office ahead of its runway show on Sunday. She wore a Richard Quinn spiky, studded coat, along with the platform, goth core-learning boots from Rick Owens, Jaupin bespoke sunglasses, and jewellery from Chrome Hearts and By Lolita.
6. The Sparkling Golden Jumpsuit
Date night! On Thursday, September 30, the ‘Love & Hip Hop’ star slipped into a chic Chanel jumpsuit before heading to the launch of Parade Issue, a new magazine, with Offset. Cardi switched looks for dinner at Giraffe restaurant with Offset that same night. She wore a diamond-printed and sparkling gold jumpsuit with black pumps and a Ruslan Baginskiy cotton beret.
With multiple shows still on the go, it is safe to say that Paris Fashion Week 2021 is more about what designers, models and celebrities bring to the runway.
Cardi B may be extraordinarily edgy this year, but she is simply enjoying the unique combination of beautiful architecture, unspoiled history, fine cuisine and fine wine in Paris with her husband.
