From being a cashier at the Amish Market in TriBeCa, New York to being a stripper, then a cast of the popular Reality TV show Love and Hip Hop, Bronx-born Cardi B has used her style to affirm that she plans on remaining true to herself.
Born Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar, the Latina-raised rapper was definitely created for stardom. Over the past two years alone, Cardi B has made music history, performed around the world, gotten married, had a baby, and even dropped her own Fashion Nova clothing collection. Yet, the Bodak Yellow rapper is showing no signs of slowing down, and she’s doing it all in top style! Cardi B outfit dresses stripper Instagram
Even as a child, there was no doubt that Cardi B had some style. In a look she shared on her Instagram page, she definitely looked like she literally invented the sartorial-streetwear mashup in the mid-90s.

This now well memefied moment gave us our first look into the wardrobe of Cardi B as a little girl and needless to say, she sure had some humorous style. Even then, Cardi was all about layering as she layered a navy halter-neck crop top and trouser two-piece over a white shirt.
“I’ve worked so hard to be able to get to these shows. When it comes to the fashion industry, they don’t care if you’ve got number-one hits, all the awards…”
~ Cardi B on making it to the biggest fashion events
The 27-year-old mother of one found her lane in style with the help of her stylist Kollin Carter in early 2017, just as her career took off. When it comes to her style, her aesthetic is very much that of a flamboyant rapper. Think thigh-high boots, colorful furs, diamond watches and not to forget about her elaborate nails.
Besides having a great stylist, Cardi B’s style evolution is equally a testament to her fearless attitude and her commitment to taking fashion’s biggest risks. At Vogue’s Forces of Fashion conference in 2019, Cardi B said: Cardi B outfit dresses stripper Instagram
“I’ve worked so hard to be able to get to these shows. When it comes to the fashion industry, they don’t care if you’ve got number-one hits, all the awards. If you just ain’t stylin’ right, they just ain’t gonna invite you to their shows; they just don’t care. You’ve got to be into it, and you’ve got to have a sense of style. It’s something that you’ve got to prove. It’s taken years for me to prove it, and I’m finally where I want to be.”
Vogue agrees. in 2017, she was named “New York Fashion Week’s Undisputed (and Uncensored) Front Row Queen” by Vogue Magazine and you’ll agree that she sure deserves it with all the looks she pulled off in recent times, especially during Paris Fashion Week. Cardi B outfit dresses stripper Instagram
From her times on LHHPNY between 2016 and 2017 to getting signed by Atlantic Records in 2017 to making her film debut on Hustlers in 2019, Cardi B has definitely had a relatively quick success with her career. As her net-worth grew, so did her style evolve, as expected. Cardi B has gone from wearing Fashion Nova dresses to wearing some of the biggest names in the fashion industry. The evidence are in these pictures which show her style growth over the past four years.
