After putting fans in their respective places for judging her “backyard performance” — that she was paid $1 million USD for — Cardi B‘s haters pivoted to a new drag: her outfit. Unbeknownst to them, the look was an iconic vintage Jean Paul Gaultier moment already loved by celebrities.
“Yes … it’s a custom Jean Paul Gaultier look and it represents the purest form of women’s bodies,” Cardi B responded to a fan that questioned if she wore that outfit to a banker’s dinner. French designer, Jean Paul Gaultier’s bodysuits and human body-inspired designs have reigned for some time now — doubt us? Cue the Body Morph Marinière print that dominated Summer 2022 on both high fashion and Shein fronts.
