Cardi B turned up to last night’s Notes on Camp-themed Met Gala in one of the evening’s most show-stopping numbers: a head-to-toe ruby red Thom Browne dress with a 10-foot train to rival Rihanna’s legendary bright yellow Guo Pei gown. Adorned with feathers, the dress would be something to marvel at even without accessories.
But this being Bardi, there had to be accents, and two in particular caught the attention of fans. The breastplate of Cardi’s dress was encrusted with two ruby nipples, designed by Stefere, that cost, according to the rapper, $250k each. “If I lose one of these, I’m gonna have to sell one of my [Hermes] Birkin bags,” Cardi joked to Vogue’s reporter. Watch Cardi discuss the making of her dress above.
