Cardi B Dresses as a Pearl in a Clam Shell at the 2019 Grammys

Cardi B’s outrageous red carpet look at the Grammy Awards has everyone talking.

The “I Like It” rapper stepped out in a vintage Thierry Mugler look from 1995. The dress featured a dramatic ruffle detailing at the waist designed to look like a mollusk shell. The dress pairs with shiny pink gloves and features pearl detailing at the waist and neckline.

Cardi styled the dress on the red carpet with a wild peal-adorned updo — rocking the same piece that was worn on the runway. The performer works with celebrity stylist Kollin Carter to put together her bold looks.

The “Bodak Yellow” entertainer was accompanied by husband Offset, who looked dapper by his wife’s side in a pair of black pants and a lacy top. The Migos member accessorized with a series of necklaces and wore heavy rings on his fingers.

Cardi is slated to perform at this year’s ceremony, joining a star-studded list that includes Miley Cyrus, Shawn Mendes and Lady Gaga. She is nominated for five awards on the night — among them Album and Record of the Year, two of the most coveted honors.

The 26-year-old rapped at last year’s Grammys to “Finesse” alongside Bruno Mars.
