Cardi B knows how to make a statement.
The 30-year-old rapper attended the 2023 Grammys to present the Rap Album award to Kendrick Lamar.
She strutted her stuff in a silver metallic top and long skirt, both made with strategically cut triangular pieces from the designer’s Spring Summer 2021 collection. She paired the stunning skin-baring look with a matching hood from the Fall Winter 2020 collection.
The “WAP” hitmaker looked like a space-age soldier in a metallic mesh hood, which covered his eyes and hung close to his ears.

“Okay, Cardi! That’s how silver works! Another fan clapped..

We can only imagine what the “Be Careful” singer will be slipping into for upcoming parties.
