Cardi B's Ripped Sequined Jumpsuit Is on Auction For $8,000 — NBD!
Like the pro that she is, Cardi B moved onward and upward with her performance at Bonnaroo in 2019 after having ripped her Yousef Al-Jasmi jumpsuit, swiftly changing into a bra and bathrobe backstage. "I just wanna let y'all know that my outfit rip," she stated, before emerging in the robe. "We gonna keep it moving, baby. We gonna keep it sexy," Cardi told her audience, according to the Tennessean's recap of the music festival. Images show that the zipper area on the back of Cardi's suit did, in fact, pull at the seams.
We can't imagine it'd be easy to navigate dance moves across the stage in this work of art, which features strips of turquoise, purple, orange, gold, and white shimmering sequins and beads. Now, it's reported that the design, which is a size 6 and measures a 26.5" waist, has been repaired and is up for auction at Nate D. Sanders, where the starting bid is set at $8,000. Despite "light wear and repairs," it's said to be in very good condition. Well, if it was once stylish enough for Cardi, it's stylish enough for me.
