This past Sunday was the iHeartRadio Music Awards where there were dozens of stunning fashion moments to ogle over, from Halsey’s “Flintstones”-inspired look to Serayah’s all-Tommy Hilfiger motocross outfit. But two days later, we still can’t get over Cardi B’s loofah-inspired Christian Siriano dress.
When the “Bodak Yellow” rapper took the stage after winning Best New Artist, all we could think was: We need that dress in our closets. Although the tulle can be a tricky fabric, the tiered effect and tight, satin bodice made the dress modern, youthful, and sophisticated. The outfit wouldn’t be complete without bejeweled shoes that matched Cardi encrusted nails.
However, the dress proved to be more than a solid option for posing on the red carpet. Cardi squatted and swayed with the dress during her acceptance speech where she thanked her fans, family, and, most importantly, her haters for helping her win the award.
“I want to thank my haters,” she said. “They be downloading my stuff so they can hear and talk crap about it—but it benefits me. Hahaha!”
Giving more for the haters to talk about, Cardi let it slip that her new album is dropping in April. Make sure you check out the rest of the two minute speech below. If not for her okurr’s and laugh, do it for how damn good the Siriano dress looks on her.
