Washington D.C [U.S.A], May 7 (ANI): Lady Gaga is not just the one who grabbed the eyeballs at the Met Gala. American rapper Cardi B pulled off her red ruby gown very well.
The Grammy-winning rapper hit the red carpet at the fashion event, held Monday night at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. For this year's event, themed "Camp: Notes on Fashion," Cardi wore an extravagant ruby red gown featuring a larger-than-life skirt, feathered shoulders and a beaded cap.
The ensemble's corseted bodice accentuated Cardi's waist and bust, with red beads. It is Cardi B after all, reported E-News
According to Vogue and as cited by E-News, the hand-embroidered stunning dress of the singer was adorned with 30,000 feathers and took more than 2,000 hours to execute. An impressive 35 people worked to bring Browne's Met Gala vision to life.
This is the second year that the "I Like It" rapper has attended the Met Gala, she previously stole the show at last year's event, which had the theme, "Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination."
For the 2018 Met Gala, Cardi, who was pregnant with baby Kulture at the time, donned a pearl-encrusted dress by Moschino. She wore a vintage 1995 Mugler ensemble comprised of a pearl-pink "clamshell" out of which the singer did her best Venus de Milo, complete with nude sequin bodysuit and pearl accessories.
And never doubt that Cardi B will suffer for style; in addition to the dress being difficult to walk in, her hairstylist Tokyo Stylez revealed to PEOPLE that her jewelled updo was "so heavy" and "weighed about 10 lbs."
The July after last year's Met Gala, the star welcomed daughter Kulture Kiari from husband Offset.
Praising his wife, rapper Offset, couldn't help but gushed over Cardi's instantly iconic look on his Twitter, and wrote: "WIFEY IS THE TRUTH SHE JUST KILLED THE MET GALA Cardi B, THAT DRESS IS WOW !!!!.

On the Grammys red carpet earlier this year, The 2019 Met Gala is being co-hosted by Lady Gaga, Harry Styles, Serena Williams and Gucci creative director Alessandro Michele, along with Vogue's Anna Wintour.
