Last week, Rapper Cardi B showed up to the Met Gala in a Versace look—and Versace car! The rapper had one of the most elaborate entrances at the 2022 Met Gala. Cardi said, “to be honest, it’s a competition and we are going to be number 1!” Her dress played tribute to “American Hip Hop” culture and to Gianni and Dontella Versace. They were the first to bring it into high fashion. The theme this year was the “Gilded Age” so the chose to make something super metallic and over the top gold.
It was a reflection of the attitude of the time where it was all about success and new opulence. The dress was a second skin of jewelry. It had a layer of embroidered tulle with jewelry net. It also was stitched by hand by Italian artisans in gold Galvanic. See what the 29-year-old mom of two had to say in a behind-the-scenes video clip of her being styled for the Met Gala inside, Cardi is a hoot for sure!
