Cardi B is a fashion icon. There, I said it. The Bronx-born and raised Dominican beauty has never been anything but real with her fans. With her famedom (and cashflow), her style has become even more epic, and she doesn’t stick to just one look.

Though, you’ll be able to spot some staples accessories in these Cardi B styles

1. The Met Gala 2018

The Met Gala’s theme this year was “Catholicism” and last night, Cardi B started a new religion. She glowed up the red carpet and even said, “@itsjeremyscott made my dreams come true. The perfect designer for me. No only in style but personality .”

2. Which caused some buzz…

14. Correction: Denim Everything.

Watch Cardi keep her hands to herself because she knows what she’s doing.

Tessa Thompson Met A Mini Version Of Herself During ‘Men In Black’ Premiere

Tessa Thompson Met A Mini Version Of Herself During ‘Men In Black’ Premiere

When the original “Men In Black” premiered in 1997, there’s no denying it was a mega box office hit. In fact, we’re a bit more surprised that it took this long for there to be another installation to the franchise. Now, 22 years later, the new version, fittingly titled, “Men In Black: International” the film is more inclusive, which is certainly appreciated in this day and age.

It’s because of this diverse representation that Latinas can see themselves on the big screen.

Last week, during the “Men In Black” premiere Tessa Thompson spotted a little girl who was dressed just like her in the movie.

Thompson recounted the moment on Instagram and discussed how much she’s been through with the filming of the movie and doing press all over the world. She said it was this moment that meant so much to her.

“These past couple weeks have been almost a blur— except, my favorite moment of all— meeting the one person I really made @meninblack for. Hers was the first face I saw when I arrived to the premiere— and it’s still on my mind. And what she said to me, I’ll never forget.”

This moment really signifies why representation matters so much.

Instagram/@tessamaethompson

People seem to forget how many others are excluded when we see a movie or TV show, so when you see a person that looks like you starring in a massive project, it’s an encouraging thing that means to so many. Now we’re wondering what that little girl said to her. Please tell us, Tessa!

Thompson’s role in the new “Men In Black” also came with a couple of changes including something she didn’t want to say just because Will Smith said it in the original.

Instagram/@tessamaethompson

Thompson said in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter that she didn’t want the new movie to be too much like the old one, which makes sense especially because this is 2019! We don’t need to regress to 1997.

In the original movie, Smith says “I make this look good” after he first puts on his suit. Thompson said she would never say that line.

“I wouldn’t have said it. In fact, I think someone did ask me to — just as an option — and I said no. M [her character] is just different from that character [Agent J/Smith]. Yeah, I was really conscious of too much nostalgia. Also, inside of that, there were moments when I thought, ‘Let’s lean in.'”

Yes!! That is why we need more women of color in movies!

Cardi B May Be In Denial About Not Going To Jail After She Faces Felony Charges From A NYC Grand Jury

Cardi B May Be In Denial About Not Going To Jail After She Faces Felony Charges From A NYC Grand Jury

Cardi B is apparently facing some pretty serious legal issues after news broke that the “Money” rapper is facing felony indictments from a grand jury.

The charges seem to stem from a bar brawl back in August.

She is allegedly facing 14 charges in connection with the incident.

Cardi B has been indicted by a grand jury on multiple charges — including two felonies — in connection with a brawl at a New York strip club.

TMZ was first to break the story.

The incident, which went down in August, was allegedly triggered after Cardi accused Jade of sleeping with Offset. Cardi was arrested in October for allegedly ordering the attack on two strip club bartenders — Jade and Baddie G. The two women claim they were injured during the brawl when Cardi’s people began throwing bottles and chairs.

Cardi B had already faced charges in relation to the attack.

She was initially charged with two misdemeanors for assault and reckless endangerment, but that’s all superseded by the grand jury indictment.  

Previously, Cardi rejected a plea deal in connection with the incident, which revolves around two women who claim to have sustained injuries during a fight they allege began because of a request from Cardi.

Reactions on Twitter were everywhere…

But most could agree that this whole event took a turn real fast.

It seems that Cardi B wasn’t getting much support from fans on Twitter.

Many comments range from “it’s about damn time” and “lock her up” to loads of memes and GIFs of people laughing at the rapper’s deteriorating legal situation.

While others were already looking to the future.

I mean it’s a bit premature to be sure that Cardi B may be facing jail time, let alone prison time.

Even non-fans were surprised by the level of hate she was getting.

The only way I could see people being happy is if she actually did it and is now going to face the consequences for her actions.

While many wondered why people were putting so much energy into the news.

To many, it was her reaction to the initial charges and the way she denied any involvement. Many thought she reacted as if she could get away with whatever she wanted – that she shouldn’t have to face the consequences.

To some, there are way more pressing matters to be shocked and disgusted at.
