Watch the rapper’s high-fashion fitting.
The designer’s Venus crinoline sheath gown was an immediate standout and ultimately selected for the rapper’s red carpet look. It was originally worn by Mugler’s beloved muse Simonetta Gianfelice. “That dress is worth not being able to walk,” Carter commented on its slender silhouette. “I know she’d be happy to just tiptoe down the carpet.”
Other pieces were flown tfrom the couture house to Los Angeles and they all required alterations to complement Cardi’s frame. Even the gloves she wore onstage were adjusted to accommodate the length of her flashy nails.
The fashion was displayed in prominence throughout the Grammy Awards as Cardi B bodied her performance and made history.
