With her relatable sense of humor, unfiltered interviews, and music that speaks to the public, Cardi B has the world wrapped around her finger.
The Bronx-born rapper has landed her first cover of the Carine Roitfeld-helmed magazine, shot through the lens of photographer-of-the-moment Petra Collins.
In the cover image, Cardi is seen wearing Saint Laurent, Alexandre Vauthier and Gianvito Rossi, styled by Ron Hartleben. In issue 12, the cover story features an interview conducted by Zendaya, the multi-faceted artist serves as CR Fashion Book’s second cover star of the month.
In a press release Roitfeld said:
“Our covers celebrate Zendaya and Cardi B, two women who could not be more different, but who are both icons made for 2018: approachable, unfiltered, and multi-talented, I’m inspired by their generation’s ability to make the most of their crazy reality and use it as fuel for creativity.”
Cardi’s cover story is titled “Save Money Look Better,” and revolves around the idea of meshing high-end designers with budget-friendly statement pieces to create different looks that are achievable without breaking the bank. In the issue, Roitfeld went as far as pairing items from Walmart with classic Versace pieces.
Her stylist told WWD, “We like to be relatable in that aspect, like, Ok, we have this $2,000 shoe, but let’s pair it with this top that any girl around the way would be able to afford. That’s really important to us.”
Cardi continues to prove she isn’t afraid to be herself, while taking the world along for the ride. The issue will be available March 1st.
