The pregnant star sported a champagne-colored ballgown crusted in jewels that featured daring thigh-high slits and a plunging neckline. She sported a matching headdress — going for a look that worked perfectly with the “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination” theme — to complete her stylish ensemble.
Cardi completed her fashionable outfit with shiny stiletto sandals — a style that allowed her bold dress and headpiece to take center stage.
Cardi walked the red carpet alongside Moschino designer Jeremy Scott, the brains behind her elaborate look, who wore a matching look to hers. He sported white shoes with silver buckles.
Although it may seem to fans that Cardi has been a regular red carpet fixture for years, this is the star’s first Met Gala after her breakout year, which began with the rise of her song, “Bodak Yellow” to the top of the charts in September 2017.
The 25-year-old made a dramatic entrance at the event as her ballgown dress billowed in the wind behind her.
