Cardi B's Stylist Talks Nostalgic "Up" Music Video Style

Cardi B's Visionary Stylist Wanted Her Nostalgic "Up" Video Style to Be "Hood Yet High Fashion"

It wouldn't be a Cardi B music video without incredible outfits. The singer puts her trust in Kollin Carter to dream up bigger and bolder styles each time she releases a new track or steps out on the red carpet, and the sexy "Up" video is no exception. When the clip premiered on Feb. 5, fans immediately started buzzing about the looks, and Kollin recently shared a few fun details on his Instagram.

Kollin called out a specific moment from the music video, where Cardi wears a cone bra and spray-painted sneakers. "This look by @fashionbyreyortiz was special!" Kollin wrote. "We wanted to create a HOOD yet High Fashion moment! We used elements from Jean Paul Gaultier's iconic 1984 ruched cone boobs mixed with an early 2000's Juicy couture aesthetic! Remember when sneakers heels were the thing then?"

He included videos and photos of the sneaker creation process as well. "I had the amazing @berkvisual take my favorite @maisonmargiela x @reebok collab and paint some super dope graphics with lyrics from 'UP' on them!" Kollin explained. "Topped off the look with velour scrunches in the hair and went overboard with multiple stacked gold @jenniferfisherjewelry bangles. The background dancers were wearing custom ruched @sirbabajagne halter neck, booty short bodies suits, and @reebok sky high sneakers also customized by @berkvisual." What an outfit!
