BELCALIS “CARDI B” ALBERTO TAKES OVER NYFW!

Cardi B was giving us LEWKS this past week at NYFW. I don’t know if the world is truly ready for this Bronx Bombshell. Cardi B was seen sitting front row with Vogue’s Editor-in- Chief Anna Wintour. So you know we’re about to see more of Belcalis aka Cardi B in the fashion world.

BISH STOLE MY LOOK: JIMMY CHOO X OFF-WHITE BOOTS

My favorite Rihanna quote has to be when she was receiving her fashion icon award at the 2014 CFDA fashion awards; she stated, “She may beat me but she can never beat my outfit.” Still pure FACTS!!! My girl Rihanna looked fabulous both times she rocked these Jimmy Choo x Off-White boots. Hailey Baldwin & LNHH Miami star Veronica Vega rocked these during NYFW. Who was your fave? These optic white padded Nappa Leather Mid High Boot retails at $1,570.
