Cardi B’s royal purple Gaurav Gupta design made its debut on the catwalk just five days ago at Paris Fashion Week
From runway to red carpet! Cardi B’s 2023 Grammys red carpet look just made its debut on the Paris Fashion Week runway.
The “Up” rapper, 30, showed some skin in a royal purple draped gown featuring dramatic sculptural hooded and statement shoulders. The form-fitting gown, designed by Indian couturier Gaurav Gupta, made its debut on the Paris Fashion Week runway just five days before the Grammys. The design highlighted Cardi’s figure and showed off her abs with an exposed front cutout, plus a deep plunging neckline. The rapper accessorized with sparkling hoop earrings and rings for some major bling.
Cardi B opted out of the 2022 Grammys, but in 2021 her red carpet fashion was one of the talked-about moments of the night. The nominated rapper stepped out in gladiator-like metal bra, with pointed armor-style shoulder pads, knee pads and briefs by Rey Ortiz. Cardi completed her edgy chromatic look with sexy fishnets and D’Orazio rose gold diamond earrings.
