Don’t expect to see a buttoned-up Cardi B!
The 26-year-old rapper and new mom isn’t interested in changing her style now that she’s a mom. ET’s Katie Krause caught up with the “I Like It” emcee at the launch of her Fashion Nova X Cardi B collaboration at Boulevard3 on Wednesday night.
Rocking her new line, Cardi wowed in a gray plaid jacket and mini-skirt with a tiny white crop top. Four months after welcoming her daughter, Kulture, Cardi has no plans to cover up.
"Not at all,” she tells ET of changing her style. "I don’t feel like I gotta change my style because I had a baby.”
There is one exception to this attitude, but Cardi notes it’s more of a practical approach.
"I feel like the only time I should change my style is if I have my baby on me,” she says of her alone time with her daughter. "Like, no I don’t want to wear a god damn thong and walk around my baby. But I don’t feel like I gotta change."
As for the collection, Cardi admits that she’s nervous to showcase her styles with Fashion Nova.
"I’m actually very nervous because I hope that people like my collection. I know it’s a little bit different and I know people was not expecting what I was gonna drop,” the rapper explains. "So I hope it does good. I’m about to see so many people, so many celebrities, so it’s like oh snappity, snap, snap!"
Cardi was joined by many A-list guests including Khloe Kardashian, Iggy Azalea, and more. She was all about girl power at the event.
"It feels really amazing [to have star support]. A lot of people think it’s supposed to be a catty thing, and it just feels good,” she says. "When other women show love to each other, and they don’t know how much that means to me though. One day they might need a kidney and I might give you mine and I barely drink, so mine might be good.”
Cardi didn’t hold back at her launch. After showing off her designs on the red carpet, she took to the stage in a latex red bodysuit, flaunting her fit post-baby body.
While all of this was going on, Iggy Azalea and 15-year-old rapper Bhad Bhabie got into some beef. Bhad Bhabie allegedly threw her drink on Iggy’s wig, prompting a response from the “Fancy” rapper.
The Fashion Nova X Cardi B collection dropped at 11:59 p.m. on Nov. 14.
