The South Bronx genius behind 2017’s undeniable banger of the year is moving on from just rapping about suiting up in high fashion– she’s living it. Cardi B announced her first ever fashion collaboration with Steve Madden, a partnership that features the “Bodak Yellow” hitmaker as the face of the new campaign. Along with lending her star power to the designer’s eponymous fashion line, the 25-year-old rapper has also curated her own collection of “favorite looks” from the brand.
The rapper took to Twitter to drop her first promo for the Cardi B x Steve Madden collaboration titled “Daily Tips With Cardi B.”
True to her vibe, the rapper highlights the affordability of the selection while still pointing out that you can look fly AF on a budget. After all, her unconventional stripper-turned-reality star-turned-rapper rags to riches story makes her the queen of “clatchet” style according to the #BardiGang.
“It’s your girl Cardi B and I’ma just keep it real, right? I look rich as hell, cuz I am. You can look rich too, cuz look at these boots! They Steve Madden, bitch,” says Cardi B of the hot new line.
“I’ve loved Steve Madden since I was a little girl,” Cardi B told Refinery29. “Back then, I died for a pair of Steve Madden shoes. I love how [his shoes are] affordable but [still such] great quality. Every girl can’t afford “bloody shoes,” so I like that I can partner with a shoe company many girls can afford!”
The rapper dipped back into her viral celeb roots to flex the collab for the ‘Gram:
Here’s to hoping Cardi B does for Steve Madden what “Bodak Yellow” did for Louboutin red bottoms.
