Cardi B shared insights with fans as to what goes on inside the Met Gala in an Instagram post. The photo carousel included her pictures with Bad Bunny, Doja Cat, Halle Bailey and other known celebrities. She also shared the most adorable snap which was a screenshot of a FaceTime between Billie Eilish and Cardi’s daughter, Kulture. Her daughter, who is four now, is smiling into the camera while Eilish is smiling back at her.
Cardi B wore a sleek tuxedo gown, with massive black Chanel-inspired Camellia flowers and a Lagerfeld-inspired grey hairdo for the Met Gala 2023. This encompassed the theme for the year ‘Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty’ in honour of the late designer.
“This skirt is giving Chanel Boy bag, and the flowers — when you get a Chanel purse, you always get white flowers but this one is black. Up top, it’s giving Karl,” Cardi said on the red carpet. “I’m representing the House of Chanel and Karl at the same time.”
On the other hand, Billie Eilish wore a sheer, black custom Simone Rocha gown, with her hair in a long black braid down her side.
The event showcased more than 150 original looks designed by Lagerfeld, who was the former Chanel creative director for about seven decades. Apart from the looks, his original sketches are also set to appear alongside the objects on display.
