Cardi B’s Versace dress at the 2022 Met Gala

Cardi B gave Donatella Versace a whole birthday gift at the 2022 Met Gala. The fashion event happened this year on the iconic designer’s birthday, May 2, and to celebrate, Cardi wore an intricate all-gold creation from the Italian fashion house. Dripping with gold jewelry and chains, the dress was an over-the-nose take on the “Gilded Glamour” theme. “I love the theme,” Cardi told Vogue on the red carpet. “Gold is gold, it’s royal. It could be any era. »

In a making-of video shared with Vogue, Versace artisans said the backless dress consisted of seven types of chains, nearly a kilometer of chains and jewels, and 250 of the brand’s signature Medusa elements. . “She’s so brave to wear it because it’s so heavy,” Versace said.

This is Cardi’s third time to attend the Met Gala: She previously attended the camp-themed event in 2019 wearing a red Thom Browne dress, and the year before, during her first pregnancy, Cardi wore a religious but regal Moschino dress. Check out her latest Met Gala preview.
