The rapper’s accessories really elevated this all-black look into a true head-turner. She wore a sweetheart-neckline gown with a long train that was relatively sleek and simple, but then amped it up (to put it mildly) with golden-nailed gloves, a dramatic black veil, and a metallic opera mask. Her hefty earrings were carved into the shape of sparkly eyes, with bejeweled fingers dangling from them. (Body parts are a continuous theme in Roseberry’s collections; He’s made golden breastplates and briefcases embellished with golden ears.)
This isn’t the first time Cardi has proven she’s a fan of Schiaparelli’s kooky surrealism. She casually wore the label’s giant gold headpiece down the streets of Paris during fashion week. But the bold, one-of-a-kind look was right at home at the AMAs, further proving that she was the right woman to host. Is it too early to declare her the fashion winner of the night?
