Cardi B’s Met Gown Was Covered In 30,000 Burned And Dyed Coque Feathers

This year’s Met Gala theme, “Camp: Notes On Fashion”, was pretty much made for Cardi B and she didn’t disappoint.

The rapper, 26, wore a giant red gown that took over 2,000 hours to make.

The custom Thom Browne gown made from tulle and silk organza covered Cardi from her head to her feet, including a 10-foot train. Thirty-five people hand-embroidered the dress that is decorated with 30,000 burned and dyed coque feathers.

The bugle-bead headpiece was made in collaboration with Stephen Jones, reports Vogue. One day later,Β Vogue released a video (see above) of Cardi getting dressed for the star-studded event.

Browne told the magazine, β€œI designed this dress for Cardi specifically because she has the ultimate beauty in a woman’s body, and that is what the dress is about for me: taking advantage of that beauty.”

Cardi’s husband Offset was also a big fan of the dress, writing on Twitter, “wifey is the truth, she just killed the Met Gala.”

Last year Cardi was dressed by Moschino in a beaded number for the “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion And The Catholic Imagination” that showed off her baby bump.
