Cardi B Served Courtroom Drama In A Giant Feather Cape With A 10 Ft-Long Train And 6 Inch Louboutins—Slay

Cardi B Is Facing 4 Years In Prison But That Didn’t Stop Her From Serving Lewks At Court In This Feather Cape

She did that. Cardi B really did that. The rapper from the Bronx strut into court—where she stands accused of assault—in the most extra look possible. Looking like Sesame Street’s Big Bird in mourning, the Bodak Yellow rapper, wore the most extravagant feather coat for her hearing and we are truly stunned and stanning. Check out the full look. 

Appearing in court is a serious thing. People usually wear their most solemn outfits and serious faces. 

But not Cardi. She walked into the courthouse in a gigantic feathered cape, an equally feathered hat, a long tie and nails sharper than the lawyer’s wit. Escorted by her security element and attorney, the rapper made her way into the courtroom with a whole lotta feathers and zero cares. 

Cardi’s hearing was at the criminal courts in Queens, New York. 

On the day of the hearing, the weather was actually quite warm.Which is significant because it means that Cardi didn’t wear this outfit because it was cold or to stay warm or dry. She wore it because she could —Cardi wore a massive feathered cape to court because she’s a fashion killer and she needed to make an entrance worthy of her reputation. 

The feather coat features batwing sleeves and a 10 ft long train.

The coat, designed by Adrienne Landau —a designer known for her use of extravagant textures like fur and feathers— is part of her Fall 2019 collection. The piece, aptly called “Queen’s Coat” made of charmeuse and feathers, will set you back a mere $2,995. That’s right, for less than three thousand dollars, you can look like a giant, Big Bird in mourning. 

Cardi was in court in connection with the strip club fight she was involved in, last August. 

Cardi, whose real name is Belcalis Almanzar, was in court regarding an altercation at a strip club in August of last year. She was indicted on 14 charges and 2 felony counts of attempted assault with intent to cause serious physical injury.

The rapper seemed composed and calm as she entered the courtroom, despite the mayhem of media outside.

Cardi was so cool, she even told ET that she’s feeling “pretty good.” Cardi also rocked long, green pointy nails and a pair of patent 16 inch louboutin heels and I am taking notes on my fashion legal pad. 

Belcalis was more serious inside though. 

Cardi was more somber inside the courtroom, where she plucked off her feathers to face the judge. The 27-year-old is accused of getting into a physical altercation with two bartenders at Angel’s Strip Club in College Point, Queens in August 2018.

The “Press” rapper allegedly ordered an attack on two strip club bartenders that ended in physical injury for the plaintiffs.

Cardi B was arrested in October for the fight, which was allegedly caused by the rapper accusing one of the bartenders, Jade, of having an affair with Cardi B’s husband Offset. Jade’s sister Baddie Gi was also harmed in the altercation. 

Cardi was originally only facing misdemeanor charges, but now she’s been indicted on felonies.

According to TMZ, she has now been indicted on two felony counts of attempted assault with intent to cause serious physical injury as well as misdemeanor counts on reckless endangerment, assault, criminal solicitation, conspiracy, and harassment. The Grammy winner was originally only facing misdemeanor charges, but rejecting the plea deal caused additional charges to be made when the case was presented in front of a grand jury.

This isn’t the first time that the singer has teetered on the verge of wearing acceptable attire.

Among her many courtroom appearances in 2019, she wore a hot-pink pantsuit with matching pumps, and a navy two-piece suit, both bearing ample amounts of cleavage.

If anything, Cardi is staying true to her own brand.

If you’re wondering what that is, easy; sexy, whimsical, and unapologetic. And apparently, lighthearted, as she faces charges that could reportedly put her behind bars for four years. Here’s hoping that she doesn’t ruffle up any feathers with prosecutors, and will fly out of all this litigation smoothly. The jury, however, is still out on whether this look needed to happen.
