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, Vogue released a video (see above) of Cardi getting dressed for the star-studded event.
Browne told the magazine, “I 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.
