Cardi B Goes Topless Wearing a Thongkini Bottom in a Bathtub

While many celebrities have embraced the thongkini trend, Cardi B has set out to take the bikini style to new heights. On Saturday, July 8, the rapper took to Instagram with an alluring reel that captured her twerking in various locations as her latest song, "Point Me 2," played in the background. Of all the attention-grabbing moments in the video, the 30-year-old left fans in even more of a frenzy when she appeared nearly nude in a mirrored room, dancing in a bathtub. "SHE PLAYIN WAP, SHE THROWIN CAT IN THE UBER BLACK !!!," she captioned the post, in which she wore nothing but a brown thongkini bottom that showed off her toned back and famous tattoo collection — most notably the flowers that cascade down her back, along with her giant peacock tattoo.

The "WAP" musician is no stranger to rocking skin-baring pieces. Just days earlier, she debuted a velvet thong bodysuit for her latest music video collaboration with FendiDa Rappa, and she donned a white monokini with nipple covers for a Whipshots campaign earlier this year. She also embraced thongkinis long before they became popular, including the denim bikini and vintage Dior ensemble she wore on social media, simultaneously taking on the archival Y2K fashion trend.

Besides her penchant for thongs, Cardi B has produced other noteworthy fashion moments, mixing in figure-flattering silhouettes and avant-garde wear, often deemed "Cardi Couture." Having worked with stylist Kollin Carter for years, the mom-of-two has enjoyed quite the style evolution, most recently with her Paris Haute Couture Week looks. In just a few days, Cardi B flaunted a Gaurav Gupta green dress with a puffer hood, a sleeveless bodycon gown with a feathered jacket by Schiaparelli, and a tweed Thom Browne skirt suit, showcasing her sartorial versatility. She's also established herself as the queen of catsuits, regularly wearing them for performances, from the mint green Radiant by KOS number at Hot 107.9's Birthday Bash to the pink butt-cutout suit she wore for the 2023 Hot 97 Summer Jam.
