Cardi B’s Met Gala Dress Has a Never-Ending Train and Feathered Shoulders

Cardi B had one of the most dramatic entrances of the 2019 Met Gala.

All eyes were on the 26-year-old as she arrived in a burgundy Thom Browne gown with a nearly endless train at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York tonight.

This marked Cardi’s second time attending the Met Ball. For her first appearance at the event last year, she joined Moschino designer Jeremy Scott clad in one of his designs. The then-pregnant star wore an embellished gown with an over-the-top headdress.

Lady Gaga is one of the hosts of this year’s Met Gala, alongside “Sign of the Times” singer Harry Styles and 23-time Grand Slam tennis champion Serena Williams. The theme is “Camp: Notes on Fashion” — a play on a Susan Sontag essay from the ’60s.

“Camp is esoteric — a private code or badge of identity,” Sontag wrote in the essay, citing Swan Lake, Tiffany lamps and the Art Deco movement as examples.
