- Cardi B turned heads on the 2019 Grammy Awards red carpet in a pearl-adorned Mugler dress, worn over a sheer bodysuit that made her look like she was emerging from a shell.
- The rapper also wore an arrangement of pearls on top of her head.
- Twitter users had a lot to say about the ensemble, comparing Cardi’s hat to a tower of Ferrero Rocher chocolates and her dress to a coffee filter.
Cardi B arrived at the 2019 Grammy Awards, held Sunday at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, in show-stopping style.
The rapper wore a semi-sheer pink and black Mugler dress that was adorned in pearls over a sheer bodysuit. The dress flared out at her waist, creating a dramatic ruffled shape that made her look like she was emerging from a shell.
She also wore an arrangement of pearls on her head, and a single pearl over her belly button, as well as long pink gloves that went past her elbows.
In a post on Mugler’s official Instagram account, the designer said the dress is called the pink duchess and satin velvet venus sheath dress. The brand also said the star’s blush embellished bodysuit was originally included in the brand’s fall/winter 1995-1996 couture show held at the Cirque d’Hiver, a venue in Paris, France.
On Twitter, fans had mixed reactions to the bold ensemble
While some said they loved the look, others compared Cardi’s look to everything from a tower of Ferrero Rocher chocolates to a coffee filter.
