It’s been a minute since the styles in a music video became instantly iconic, but Cardi B’s new “I Like It” video is set to go down in fashion history.
This bop is not only poised to be the song of the summer, but Cardi B is decked out in the most vibrant, stunning outfits that will have fashion girls running to their nearest store. Nothing is slowing this rapper down – despite the side-effects of pregnancy that Cardi B is currently experiencing — she is not only releasing incredible songs but she’s serving us serious lewks.
We thought nothing could top Cardi B’s Met Gala ensemble, but we were mistaken. And now it’s time to break down the truly sensational styling in this video. Erika La Pearl did Cardi’s makeup, and she used Pat McGrath’s incredible lip products. Cardi’s sweet pink lip is a combination of the She’s Heaven and Valletta lipsticks topped with Aliengentic lip gloss.
Tokyo Stylez is responsible for Cardi’s hairstyling, which why we’re not surprised the look is fire! To tie everything together fashion wise, Kollin Carter styled this glorious assortment of looks using designs by Michael Costello, Marc Jacobs, and the Alejandro collection.
Let’s take a closer look at the pieces in Cardi B’s “I Like It” video.
