Cardi B makes stunning runway debut, gets praise from Kim Kardashian
American rapper Cardi B stunned on the runway Saturday as part of Balenciaga’s Fall 2024 fashion show in Los Angeles. The rapper modeled a bright blue fur coat during her walk along South Windsor Boulevard with Kim Kardashian in the front row making videos of her walk.
This marks Cardi’s runway debut with the brand, which faced controversy last year over an ad campaign some claimed promoted child exploitation. The Up hitmaker opted for an off-the-shoulder style coat paired with pointed-toe heels.
Adding to the look were an ornate diamond necklace and stud earrings. She wore her long black hair slicked back in a polished ponytail. Smokey eyes and a deep red lip also accentuated Cardi’s high-fashion style.
