Cardi B Wears a Knit Cutout Catsuit in Her Vogue Cover Story
Say hello to Cardi B the cover star. Styled by celebrity image architect Law Roach, the 29-year-old rapper and mom of two graced the cover of Vogue Singapore's "Ablaze" issue, wearing a decidedly cozy Thom Browne look from the fall 2022 ready-to-wear collection. The intricate ensemble was built into a teddy-bear silhouette and involved a giant patchwork coat with prominent, tightly layered yarn loops, thrown over a knee-length knit skirt. Her finishing accessories included a balaclava-style beanie with teddy-bear ears and tall, lace-up platform boots in black and white, as well as a set of Clash de Cartier rings and bracelet.
The Grammy-winning artist opened up to Vogue Singapore editor Amelia Chia about her path to fame, touching on everything from her childhood and upbringing in the Bronx to the hustle that led to her rise as a cultural icon. Cardi also discussed becoming a mother — including the challenges of raising her children, Kulture Kiari Cephus and Wave Set Cephus — and the values she hopes to instill in them, especially the importance of hard work. "Even though my kids are well-off, I want them to know that when you work for things and achieve it, it's more respected — especially when people see that you bust your ass for it," she told the magazine. This cover follows the release of her new single, "Hot Sh*t," which features Kanye West and Lil Durk. She recently shared a teaser of the music video, where she can be spotted wearing a custom crystal bathrobe. Cardi's Vogue Singapore spread shows her off in an assortment of vibrant, bold ensembles, including a blue feathery Tom Ford coat, a Poster Girl cutout catsuit, and a striking Richard Quinn catsuit and hat.
