Cardi B was completely unrecognizable in her debut look for Paris Fashion Week. The rapper was dressed in a head-to-toe (literally) floral print by British Designer Richard Quinn. Cardi was 100% committed to the look, wearing a pleated skirt, belted coat, gloves, heels, babushka, and face mask all cut from the same fabric. The look was reminiscent of club/drag legend Leigh Bowery who dominated London nightlife in the 1980s and early ’90s. 

"PARIS FASHION WEEK, IM HERE !" shouted Cardi B while filming in front of the Eiffel Tower. The rapper was absent from New York Fashion Week due to tour commitments but Cardi made it clear that she’s in Paris for the shows. Taking to Instagram, Cardi uploaded a video of herself (dressed in Quinn) to let he fans know, “I heard you bitches were missing me at Fashion Week New York. I’m here to serve it to you motherfuckers, and serve it to you cold”.

Cardi’s next look came at the Thom Browne show, Cardi wore a grey structured blazer and skirt by the designer. The silhouette was slightly exaggerated and the ensemble was paired with Browne’s Longwing booties. Also in attendance was also GOT’s Maisie Williams and boyfriend Reuben Selby who rocked his-and-hers make up. Browne is a favorite of Cardi, she wore a custom made hooded gown, adorned with feathers with an over the top train to this year's Met Gala

On Sunday night Cardi was spotted leaving the Ritz, Paris wearing a hand-painted coat by designer Edda Gimnes. The look was teamed with matching boots, bag and wide-brimmed hat designed in an abstract pattern.

With just three days under her fashionable belt, we can’t wait to see what looks Cardi will wear next.
