Cardi B showcased her unique style at the VMAs by donning a custom-made gown and arm cuffs by Dilara Findikoglu. The floor-length gown was covered in silver hairpins and pearls, while her hair was styled in a pin-straight waist-length manner. As a performer, Cardi B is known for her elaborate looks and believes in bringing her creative visions to life. Her fashion choices have included a structured gown at the 2023 Grammys and three show-stopping gowns at this year’s Met Gala, along with an impressive afterparty ensemble.
Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion are set to perform their new collaboration “Bongos” at the 2021 MTV Video Music Awards. This will be the first time the rappers will perform together since their hit song “WAP” debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. The duo received five nominations for “WAP,” including song of the summer, song of the year, best collaboration, best hip-hop, and video of the year. Cardi B, a proud native of the Bronx, New York, explained in an interview with MTV that hip-hop was made to express the struggles and pain of people in her region, and without it, she wouldn’t be here. The VMAs will feature other musical performances, including Demi Lovato, Doja Cat, Lil Wayne, and Nicki Minaj as the host. Shakira and Sean “Diddy” Combs will also perform and be honored with global icon and video vanguard awards, respectively.
