Cardi B knows there’s a time and place for everything. While she is not shy about sharing a video of herself dancing on a table in her grandmother’s house (to her own song!) while wearing a bra and plaid short shorts, there’s a big difference between strategically teasing some skin on Instagram and unexpectedly doing so on the red carpet or, even worse, onstage.
That nightmare scenario played itself out over the weekend, when Cardi took to the stage to perform “La Modelo” at Los Angeles’s Calibash in a sheer ruched dusty pink Dolce & Gabbana dress that left a little too much to the imagination. The embroidered flowers that zigzagged across the bodice didn’t extend far enough to conceal the sheer quality of the look down below, leaving Cardi with her hand firmly planted in her crotch area for the entire performance.
She addressed the wardrobe malfunction later that night on Instagram, posting a hilarious photo of herself wearing the dress and a cheeky expression along with the caption: “Last night was LIT!!! Even tho I realize my dress was see-through and I realized last minute.” It proved that sometimes all you need is a positive attitude (and a little helping hand) to overcome an embarrassing fashion faux pas.
