Cardi B had all eyes on her at the Schiaparelli Fall/Winter 2024 show during Haute Couture week in Paris on Monday, July 3.
The 30-year-old rapper looked like a walking work of art in a tight black dress. The velvet floor number clinged to Cardi’s curves and featured a gold lining at the bodice. She paired the garment with a chunky textured coat. The New York native accessorized chunky bangles and pearl-embellished drop earrings. On the feet, the hitmaker opted for metallic wedge heels.
The most notable aspect of Cardi’s ensemble, however, was her black velvet hat — which appeared to be inspired by swim caps from the 1950s and 1960s. The piece protected the “Up” performer’s locks and drew attention to her golden glam. For makeup, Cardi opted for a dramatic cat eye, bronze cheeks and a glossy lip.
When it comes to Schiaparelli, Hollywood’s biggest names go all out. In January, during the spring-summer 2023 show of the house, Doja Cat pulled off an unforgettable look when she stepped out in head-to-toe red paint covered in crimson Swarovski crystals. The shimmering jewelry adorned every inch of the 27-year-old “Say So” singer’s body, including her eyelids, lips, chest and arms. The head-turning beat was brought to life by Pat McGrathwho used over 30,000 gems per manual application.
“It was an honor to collaborate with the incredibly gifted @DojaCat and @DanielRoseberry on the ‘Doja’s Inferno’ look for @Schiaparelli’s Haute Couture FW23 collection,” the beauty guru, 57, wrote via Instagram at era.
McGrath explained that the makeup took “four hours and 58 minutes” to create and praised the “Rules” singer’s “patience and commitment.” She added, “The end product was a magical, mesmerizing masterpiece and a tribute to Doja Cat’s hard work and dedication.”
Cardi’s outing on Monday marks her first major fashion event since the May Day Met Gala. That night, the Grammy winner brought the edge in a bumble black dress by Chenpeng Studio. The sculptural design was covered in protruding roses and finished with a beaded corset. Cardi, who shaken silver hair on the red carpetteamed the piece with a sleeveless shirt and black velvet tie.
Her outfit nailed the prom’s theme “Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty” – which Underline** the late designer’s signature work with Chanel and beyond – thanks to its black-and-white construction and preppy vibe.
