Only a few weeks after Cardi B released her bold and empowering hit song “WAP” with Megan Thee Stallion, the rap sensation has shared the news that she is now the face of Balenciaga’s autumn/winter 2020 campaign. Shot and styled by Cardi B’s team at her home in LA, the imagery features the star wearing a black catsuit-dress hybrid from creative director Demna Gvasalia’s autumn/winter 2020 collection. Cardi is lying on what appears to be an astro-turf surface, surrounded by a slide and kids toys, as well as Balenciaga’s Neo Classic bag in white.
The rapper shared an image of a giant billboard featuring the new campaign, which is being displayed on the side of the Louvre museum in Paris. In her caption, she wrote that she remembers how it felt to see herself on a billboard in Times Square for the first time but, in her words, “PARIS! Wish I was there to see it in person.”
