Can you say triple threat? Cardi B can. The rapper has yet again added one more thing to her ever-growing resume. On the heels of her curated collection with Steve Madden and her walk down the runway with Anna Wintour, the artist is teaming up with Fashion Nova for her very first fashion line.
Loving Fashion Nova
Yes, young Belcalis Almanzar is living her best life. The star is actively unbothered by any negativity that’s thrown her way. Instead, she’s keeping herself busy with a new project that’ll surely make her lots of “shmoney.”
The rapper has yet to announce the news herself, but theJasmineBRAND broke the news of her upcoming Fashion Nova line earlier this week. While there aren’t any details about what the line will consist of yet, there’s tons of proof that Cardi loves the online brand.
On numerous occasions, Cardi has spoke highly of Fashion Nova, shouting the retailer out in interviews and on social media. Her latest compliment towards the brand came in the form of an Instagram video.
Captioned “pulling up to the game in my @fashionnova!!!!” — referencing the NBA All-Star Game — the star shared how “rich people” like herself stay well-endowed. “Hello there minons,” she began in a joking tone. “You wanna know how rich people like me stay rich? By staying on a budget.” Sticking out a leg for the camera, she added, “These pants right here are Fashion Nova.”
In January, during an interview with Julie Adenuga on Beats 1, Cardi shined some light on Fashion Nova again, comparing it to higher end brands. “You wanna know something, Fashion Nova is one of the only thing(s) that just fits my body. These high-end designers I love them but, none of their jeans fit this a**,” she shared. “None of them.”
Despite what anyone says — looking at you Azealia Banks — Cardi is possibly on her way to building a fashion empire of her own. After all, once you rub shoulders with Anna Wintour, how far off could you be?
Rubbing Shoulders With Greatness
Not only did the duo sit next to each other during Alexander Wang’s runway show, but they also walked the runway in coordinated outfits. An excited Cardi posted a shot of herself and the famed fashion journalist wearing the season’s latest on Instagram, captioning the post, “Me and Anna Wintour Killin The Alexander Wang runway.”
While fans were shocked, no one was more stunned than the “Bartier Cardi” rapper herself. “I couldn’t believe it, girl,” Cardi spilled about her meeting with Anna Wintour to E! News. “I couldn’t contain myself, but I kept it together.”
“The Models couldn’t stand us,” Cardi added. Raking in over a half a million likes, the post garnered so much positivity. That is… until “The Big Big Beat” rapper Azealia logged on to Instagram. Azealia, who has built a reputation for speaking negatively about her fellow female stars, hit Cardi with some harsh criticism underneath the photo, putting “others down to make herself feel better.”
“You’re too fat to walk the runway honey. But keep promotong that single biiih,” she commented under the post. Moving on to promote her own single, Azealia continued, “ANNA WINTOUR FT MEL B .. let them know you stan honey !!!”
