However, upon closer investigation, aficionados of Cardi B are well aware that the mastermind behind her impeccable style is none other than Kollin Carter.

They make such a stunning pair, don’t they? Offset might feel a pang of jealousy if he catches sight of this.


On Oscars night, while the focus remained on film, the Vanity Fair after-party saw a multitude of musical luminaries in attendance, ranging from emerging talents like Reneé Rapp to established pop icons like Lizzo. However, it was Cardi B who truly stole the spotlight in her stunning archival Versace gown, offering a modern interpretation of a Moulin Rouge! ensemble.


Styled by Kollin Carter, the gown, adorned with jewels, was sourced from Tab Vintage and originally graced the Versace Spring/Summer Haute Couture runway as part of the Mysterious Midnights 2003 collection. The striking all-black design boasted a bust intricately crafted with three triangular segments, linked by a studded collar, forming a halter-style neckline. The bodice, resembling a bustier, dripped with richly-hued jewels, cascading down Cardi B’s hips in a mesmerizing display.

The mermaid skirt comprised two distinct parts: the upper section crafted from a sheer fabric in a tulip shape, revealing Cardi B’s elegant lacy floral tights underneath. Meanwhile, the lower portion of the skirt featured cascades of tassel-like fabric that seamlessly merged into a stunning train, elegantly trailing behind the rapper.



Cardi accessorized with black wire earrings, perfectly complementing her ensemble. Her hair cascaded in luxurious bouncy waves, evoking a timeless Old Hollywood glamour. Beauty-wise, her nails were painted black to harmonize with the overall look, while her makeup featured a sultry smoky gray eyeshadow paired with a delicate baby pink lip accentuated with a tan liner.
