Cardi B does heavy metal in dangerously spiked coat and platform boots – Footwear News
It’s Cardi B like you’ve never seen her before.
The “WAP” rapper stepped out in a look that took his avant-garde style to new heights tonight in Paris. While passing by the Balenciaga boutique for a fitting during Paris Fashion Week, the musician decided to stage everything in a leather coat with studs and pimples; the mid-length silhouette offered dangerously sharp elements with heavy metal appeal and a black varnished finish.
The set also included “Matrix” style sunglasses and a matching leather paperboy hat – even Cardi B’s nails matched the theme of the look as well.
On her feet, the musician “Up” kept the punk appeal of her look with a set of leather boots. The slick pair were balanced on a spiked platform front and sturdy block heel, appearing to stand almost 4 inches in height. The upper of the boot offered a fitted yet flexible design that reached the knee.
Named Style Influencer of the Year for the 2020 FN Achievement Awards, Cardi B is also a master of luxury clothing and athleisure fashion. The musician joined Balenciaga as the face of his fall 2020 campaign in September, with ads displayed throughout the Louvre in Paris. When it comes to her everyday looks, you can find Cardi B in everything from Mugler catsuits to sparkly Balmain skirts and her favorite Jessica Rich heels.
The “I Like It” rapper also continues to be the ultimate sportswear partner since his partnership with Reebok in November 2018; Together, Cardi B helped the brand release a series of collections as she starred in a variety of campaigns and videos featuring embellished sneakers and vintage-inspired pieces before creating her own shoe collections and clothing.
