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

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.

In the two years that have passed since her debut as an actress in the 2018 Academy Award-winning film Roma, Yaltiza Aparicio has established herself as a Hollywood “get.” The Indigenous actress has appeared countless times on the cover of magazines, ones like Vogue México and Vanity Fair, and has been featured in ad campaigns for designers like Rodarte. So it’s no surprise that she has now been tapped to be part of Dior’s new campaign “Dior Stands with Women.”

As part of an effort to celebrate women across the film, beauty, and health industries Dior has launched its “Dior Stands with Women” campaign.

On Monday, the fashion brand announced it had launched a series of short films honoring women and their contributions to the industries and communities which they occupy. The campaign features actresses like Yaltiza Aparicio, model Paloma Elsesser, dancer Leyna Bloom, Cara Delevingne, Charlize Theron, Parris Goebel, and others.

In a statement about the campaign, Dior announced their intent in a post on Instagram. “Inspired by the exceptional women who have marked its history, Christian Dior Parfums unveils a series of short filmed portraits that give a chance to speak to extraordinary women,” it reads.

Speaking in the portrait series, Aparicio explains “For me, being a woman means being strong, always holding your head up because they tell you what they say, you must be sure of what you are capable of,” she went onto say that as “as an ambassador for UNESCO, my role is to represent indigenous communities with dignity. Give them a voice and visibility, which is something that we have lacked for a long time… Women have fought for many years for gender equality. It is not about being superior to men, it is about having the same opportunities, that in your work they give you a fair salary and not simply because you are a woman they pay you less or that they consider that you have fewer capacities simply because you are a woman.”

Speaking about their journeys, actresses Cara Delevinge and Charlize Theron touched on being unapologetic and part of male-dominated industries.

Check out Yalitza and the others in the Dior campaigns below.

Cardi B And Sister Sued Over Video Claiming To Show ‘Racist MAGA Supporters’

Cardi B and her sister are being sued for defamation of character after a viral video taken by Hennessy Carolina Almánzar. The video shows two men, one wearing a MAGA hat, and one woman telling Hennessy to move her car, which is parked on the beach.

Earlier this month, Cardi B shared a video taken by her sister showing a confrontation over where a car was parked.

Cardi B, who is notorious for having widely broadcast Twitter feuds with people, posted the video in response to a tweet from Candace Owens. Owens is a controversial conservative figure whose brand is all about shock and awe. Owens famously said she thinks it would be okay if “Hitler just wanted to make Germany great and have things run well.”

Immediately, there was skepticism about the incident since the video starts during the confrontation.

Responding to nay-sayers, Cardi B shared a video of her sisters voice messages sent to her IG DMs. Hennessy claims in the messages that the white men were the aggressors against her and her girlfriend while they were on the beach.

The videos did not convince some people that her sister wasn’t in the wrong.

Cardi B’s tweet is filled with responses questioning the video and denying its authenticity. The argument immediately turned political because of the mention of Trump and Trump supporters. The conversation on Twitter is divided among people who believe Cardi B and her sister and those who don’t.

Now, Cardi B and Hennessy are being sued by the beachgoers in the video.

“These peaceful Suffolk County residents were quietly enjoying a Sunday at the Smith Point beach with their families, when rap celebrity Hennessy Carolina suddenly approached them, raging, spitting, insulting, assaulting, defaming and threatening them, all the while videotaping them because one of them wore a MAGA hat,” beachgoers’ Miller Place attorney John Ray said, according to ABC7NYC.

The lawsuit claims defamation of character because of the language used in the video against them.

According to Billboard, plaintiffs Peter Caliendo, Pauline Caliendo, and Manuel Alarcon claim that they had approached Hennessy and her girlfriend, Michelle Diaz, blocked them in with how she parked her car. The lawsuit states that the men asked for Diaz to move her car and that’s when Hennessy started to record the video and hurl names and insults at them.

This story is developing and mitú will be updating as the story unfolds.
