It’s not exactly like Cardi B to have a standout amongst the most stunning actuating style details on her look be so modestly downplayed. However the “Bodak Yellow” rapper’s super wattage ruby nipple covers nearly went undetected at Monday night’s Met Gala.
After looking into it further, the luxurious, down-filled silk and organza gown by designer Thom Browne (that flaunted a sweeping 10-foot train) was decorated with 44 carats-worth of rubies on her boobies. Esteemed at an astounding $250,000, the gems were a custom formation of jewelry designer Corina Mihaila Larpin’s luxury jewelry brand Stefere.
The singer’s dress, in an oxblood red hue, was additionally decorated with hand-weaved bugle beads and 30,000 burned and dyed feathers and took 35 individuals more than 2,000 hours to make. Pebbled leather platform brogues and a precious stone encrusted headpiece by milliner Stephen Jones completed off the look, styled by Kollin Carter.
“Kollin came to Stefere and asked if we could create ruby nipples for Cardi B. – of course, we said, ‘Yes!’ Next challenge was to find the right size and shape to create the perfect pair of ruby nipples for Cardi,” Larpin told THR. “Now we think everyone should have a pair of ruby nipples.”
