Cardi B Met Gala 2019

Tomorrow, the rap goddess Cardi B is back with the release of her new single ‘Press’, and we cannot wait. Since bursting onto the scene in 2015 appearing on the reality TV show Love & Hip Hop: New York, the Bronx-born artist has become a globally-acclaimed superstar, Grammy-winner and, to say the least, a television personality. Between media controversy and creating a constant stream of hits, Cardi B exhibits a clear affinity for diamonds. Seldom is she photographed unaccompanied by an array of rock-sized gems and XL bling. In celebration of Cardi B’s mastery of diamond style, discover how to wear diamonds like a boss.

Adorn your dress

One of Cardi B’s most iconic looks has to be this yellow two-piece she wore to the 2019 Billboard Awards. Her Moschino ruched mustard ensemble was embellished with lilac, diamond and emerald jewels. The artist was certainly the most dazzling on the red carpet, however the real achievement of the evening was that Cardi B received the most nominations than any musician has been awarded with at the Billboard event. It seems diamonds are only a small part of the success when you’re making music history. 

Embellish your nails

Outrageous. Extravagant. Fierce. Cardi B’s nails always pack a punch. As most of Cardi B’s fans know, she’s been going to the same nail salon since her pre-fame days. Nail artist Jenny Bui has created a number of incredible masterpieces for the hip-hop artist. She even used real Swarovski crystals for Cardi B’s 2019 Met Gala nails. This nail art verges on the boundary of fine art, especially with the intricate diamond designs. Why not adorn your nails in crystals this season for a glam and playful look that rivals Cardi B.

Make up with sparkles

Cardi B’s promotion for her appearance at the beauty and wellness festival Beautycon shows us that you need not confine diamonds to your jewellery. Her 1950s style bob is adorned in crystals which she also incorporated into her make-up look. Festival season witnesses many young women adorning their faces with beautiful glittering gemstones, adding some glamorous and bohemian touches to their ensembles. Take a leaf out of Cardi’s style book and invest in some gemstone make-up pieces to make your night out look popping. 

 Excessively...

There’s a reason Cardi B has won three MTV music… we’re not saying it’s solely down to the incredible diamond fashion looks she exhibits, but it certainly sparks our interest. In the music video for her song ‘Money’, Cardi wears a headpiece and leotard made exclusively from diamonds, gemstones and blingy watches. With a look this extra, the word extravagant doesn’t seem to do it justice. Apparently the diamond district apparently doesn’t just exist in the jag...

But elegantly...

Whilst Cardi B’s style tends to learn towards the bold and brash, the artist can also channel elegance and sophistication with ease. The black ruched Tom Ford dress she wore to the brand’s spring 2019 fashion show emanated class. She finished her sleek look with a pair of oversized diamond chandelier earrings, adding the perfect Cardi B accent to her ensemble. The earrings feature a unique combination of pearls and emeralds, elevating her outfit to luxury levels. A single piece of striking jewellery can completely transform your style. Invest in something chic and sophisticated this season and you’ll radiate endless confidence. 

Radiate colour

Wearing over 200-carats of Lorainne Schwartz emerald jewellery, Cardi B looks like a beautiful kaleidoscope of colour and class. Coloured gemstone jewellery exudes charm and confidence, forming the perfect epitome of Cardi’s vivacious personality. Go bold and bright or opt for mutes pastel tones for a summery look that enhances your sunny side.
