Cardi B Flaunts Her Sultry Hips in a $5,000 Balenciaga Ensemble

Cardi B really likes Balenciaga.

The “I Like It” rapper took to Instagram yesterday to share a sultry photo of herself decked out in Demna Gvasalia’s designs that are worth just over $5,000.

She wore a bespoke version of the luxury fashion brand’s sculptural double-breasted wool coat, featuring a checked print in tonal yellow, green and pink. (The piece retails for $3,400.) The exaggerated hourglass silhouette, coupled with padded shoulders and flared hips, offered a futuristic take on a modern-day ensemble and allowed the entertainer to flaunt her insane figure.

For footwear, Cardi opted for a matching pair of block-heel boots, originally priced at $1,750. (They’re currently 50 percent off for $875 at MatchesFashion.com.)

Both pieces hail from the designer’s fall ’18 collection, in a runway that reimagined the heritage looks of Cristóbal Balenciaga through 3D-printed tailoring.

As if that wasn’t enough, Cardi completed the sophisticated outfit with a coveted Hermès Birkin bag in a charming shade of turquoise. The iconic accessory alone costs upwards of $15,000.
