Cardi B Shuts Down 2024 Met Gala Red Carpet in the Biggest Dress of the Night

The Grammy-winning rapper also wore jaw-dropping jewels

Cardi B knows a thing or two about “Drip.”

The Grammy-winning MC stepped out at the 2024 Met Gala on Monday, May 6, dripped out in the largest dress we’ve ever seen at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.

She was serving total Ursula from The Little Mermaid vibes in her voluminous black dress that surrounded her on the carpet. She also rocked a matching beehive-style headpiece to add height to her look and the most luscious green jewels to match the greenery of the carpet’s backdrop.

Her appearance at the event, which featured the dress code “The Garden of Time,” marks her fifth showing at fashion’s biggest night.

Cardi’s last appearance at the Met Gala came in 2023 — when the “Bodak Yellow” rapper wore an impressive four outfits for her fourth outing at the event and its afterparty.

Ahead of the Met Gala last year, Cardi left her hotel in a bejeweled pink dress with a tulle headpiece. After that, she was seen in a silver wig and a chunky black headband, which she called her way of “representing the house of Chanel and Karl at the same time,” as the event’s dress code was “Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty.”

Cardi’s additional looks during the 2023 Met Gala included a pink-and-black houndstooth bodycon dress with gemstones and a spaghetti-strap newsprint dress that she slipped into for an afterparty.

Her first Met Gala was in 2018, when she opted to show off her baby bump as she wore a jeweled crown with spindles and a gown with a high collar, long sleeves and gloves decked out in beads. The ensemble was from Moschino by Jeremy Scott, with whom she attended the event.

While Cardi wore several looks to her 2023 Met Gala appearance, she revealed in a 360 with Speedy interview earlier this year that she was “afraid” of negative feedback throughout 2023.

“I just feel like I lost myself with everything, you know, like, a lot of music commenters and everything and a lot of people just be like, you know, ‘She’s afraid to drop an album, she’s afraid to drop music,’” said Cardi. “Last year, I barely dropped music. It’s just like I was just afraid to do everything.”

As Cardi explained, she was “afraid to go live, I was afraid to post a picture, I was afraid to go to the club, and then the next day seeing people, what they going to say about me, and everything.”

The musician has since released two new singles, including track “Puntería” with Shakira, which she called a “dream.”
