The 26-year-old rapper - who scooped the prize for Best Rap Album prize at Sunday's (10.02.19) ceremony for her debut LP 'Invasion of Privacy' - stepped out wearing archive Thierry Mugler couture from their 1995 catwalk show as her outfit of choice for the legendary evening.
And celebrity hairstylist Tokyo Stylez has revealed that bringing the whole look together, as it was portrayed in the designer's autumn/winter 1995-1996 show, was very "inexpensive" and "affordable".
Speaking to US Refinery29, Tokyo said: "I saw the old photos and brought that vision to life.
It was actually very inexpensive. I got the pearls at a local crafts store and the hair from the brand Lustful Hair. All of it was very affordable, so it didn't cost much."
And Tokyo felt the look paid homage to Cardi's "freedom" as an artist.
