Cardi B’s 2018 AMAs Gown Needs to Be Admired From Every Angle

While the rest of us have busy prepping for fall by filling our closets with long sleeves and muted colors, Cardi B is leaning into the florals—hard. On Tuesday, the rapper attended the 2018 American Music Awards wearing a jaw-dropping technicolor gown, complete with a matching headpiece, that made us want to hold on to the blooming prints for a little longer.

Cardi’s Dolce & Gabbana ballgown-style dress featured a fitted, spaghetti-strapped bodice and poufy, structured skirt with a dramatic slit. It was printed with a brightly-colored floral pattern, with a handful of poppy-esque embellishments to create a 3-D effect. (Even her heels had flowers on them!)

It’s a look that needs to be admired from every single angle. So behold, from the front…

Cardi accessorized with a fascinator made from the same floral-print material as her gown. She styled her dark hair in an elegant bun at the nape of her neck.

The “Taki Taki” singer also sported bright red lipstick, coordinating scarlet eyeshadow, and crystal-encrusted red nails.

Cardi B is up for eight awards at the 2018 AMAs, including Video of the Year and New Artist of the Year, tying with Drake for the most nominations at this year’s show. She’s set to take the stage to perform her hit single “I Like It” with collaborators Bad Bunny and J Balvin.
