Nobody Had More Fun at Paris Fashion Week Than Cardi B

Nobody Had More Fun at Paris Fashion Week Than Cardi B

The rapper brought eccentric style to the City of Light.

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s… a human sunflower? That’s precisely what I thought when I saw Cardi B emerge in a neon green Richard Quinn look this weekend during Paris Fashion Week. The spandex top and pleated pants were a statement on their own, but the rapper-unafraid taking a fashion risk-had to go and finish it off with a flower-esque ruffled bonnet. The plant-like ensemble is fresh off the label’s spring 2022 runway. Later in the day, she also wore a similar look in lilac (only without the headpiece) for the Messika x Kate Moss presentation.

This kooky, eccentric fashion energy is signature Cardi, but she’s kicked it up a notch for Paris Fashion Week. It all started at the new Thierry Mugler exhibit at the MAD, where she and stylist Kollin Carter unearthed two archival looks from the fashion house. First, she wore an archival 1995 Mugler gown, complete with red sequins and a large feathered collar. Then, she changed into a black corseted creation, which was cinched at the waist to create an extreme silhouette (a Mugler signature—remember Kim Kardashian’s Met look?).

The antithesis of a wallflower, Cardi has continued delivering these bold ensembles to great fanfare. She showed up to the Balenciaga presentation wearing the label’s tabloid-print coat and an extra-wide brimmed hat from their fall 2021 couture collection. She also hit the streets-her version of casual wear?-wearing a heavily-spiked Richard Quinn trench coat and staggering Rick Owens platform boots.

The rapper has proved that she’s the queen of keeping us guessing. And isn’t that what fashion week is all about? In the right context, we love it when stars create a spectacle-and Cardi clearly did not disappoint.

Below, more of Cardi’s best looks from Paris Fashion Week.
