10 Cardi B Wardrobe Malfunctions You’ll Have to See to Believe
Does the name Belcalis Almanzar sound familiar? Probably not, considering how long it’s been since Cardi B went by that growing up in the Bronx. Since her parents named her sister Hennessy, people used to call her Bacardi to keep up the liquor-brand trend, and then she finally settled on Cardi B. Now we can’t imagine it any other way!
She first caught the public’s attention as a very vocal stripper on Instagram. She wasn’t afraid to open up to her followers about how her controversial career choice helped her escape an abusive relationship and get an education. Her social media fame got her a spot on Love & Hip Hop: New York where she was considered the sixth season’s breakout star. She only stayed on for the seventh, though, before she left to pursue a music career — and we’re SO glad she did. If she hadn’t, she wouldn’t beat out Beyonce and hold the record for having five top 10 singles on the Hot R&B/Hip Hop chart.
And although she gets a ton of attention for her songs — “Bodak Yellow,” anyone? — she’s also known for her fashion choices. When it comes to taking risks on stage and on the red carpet, she kind of reminds us of Nicki Minaj. Sometimes she shows more than she meant to, but never lets it faze her. She’s got killer confidence and rocks every look she steps out in.
