Celebrity hairstylist, Tokyo Stylez who has worked with the likes of Rihanna and Kylie Jenner, revealed that Cardi’s look on the night was affordable and not expensive.
Chatting to Refinery29 in the US, Tokyo said: “I saw the old photos and brought that vision to life. It was actually very inexpensive. I got the pearls at a local crafts store and the hair from the brand Lustful Hair. All of it was very affordable, so it didn’t cost much.”
Tokyo felt the look paid homage to Cardi’s “freedom” as an artist. He added: “I personally think her look represents her freedom as she has grown as an artist. I think she is taking more and more risks, and tonight that shows as she trusted her team to bring a lot of new looks to life that normally the powers that be would say no to.”
Cardi B’s iconic dress paid homage to the 1480s painting by Botticelli, The Birth of Venus, which depicts the goddess Venus rising from the sea on a scallop shell. Cardi was styled on the night by her long-times stylist , Kollin Carter.
