The annual Met Gala extravaganza raises money for the museum’s Costume Institute kicks off the Met’s annual major fashion exhibition — look out, because the theme is ‘camp.’
And the more outrageous the outfit, the better for the Met Gala red carpet, where the A-listers strut their stuff, usually in the most eye-popping ensemble they can find to match the theme.
Last year, Rihanna showed up in full papal-esque regalia, and Madonna wore a regal black gown – with a see-through cross in the bodice – to go along with the ‘Heavenly Bodies’ concept.
Want a seat? They go for $35,000 a piece.
Cardi B made sure to emphasize both her bust and her enviably trim midriff when she swung by the 2019 Met Gala in Thom Browne in New York on Monday.
The 26-year-old superstar confessed to getting liposuction and a boob job after giving birth. She had beaded nipples on her red ensemble, which cinched in over her belly before spreading out into a gargantuan round train.
Her getup was made of a thickly quilted burgundy fabric, which had stitching in concentric circles working its way inward from the hem.
Cardi’s shoulders were covered in feathers and so was her skintight headpiece, which distinctly resembled a scuba hood.
There were glittering crimson beads over her decolletage, matching a beaded vertical strip over her crotch and an upside down heart over her derriere.
Five gentlemen in black suits could be spotted helping her manage her feather-trimmed train as she made her way around the pink carpet.
Her husband Offset, the father of her daughter Kulture, tweeted of Cardi’s outfit: ‘WIFEY IS THE TRUTH SHE JUST KILLED THE MET GALA THAT DRESS IS WOW !!!!!’
The previous night, Cardi had been in Memphis playing the Beale Street Music Festival, where she dished about her liposuction to the audience, People reported.
‘I shouldn’t really be performing because moving too much is gonna f*** up my lipo. But b**** I’m still gonna get my motherf***ing money back, let’s go!’ she vamped.
Last week, she shared with Entertainment Weekly that she had gotten surgery on her breasts after delivering Kulture last year.
