Cardi B has a message for French fashion designer Thierry Mugler, who loaned her a vintage haute couture dress from 1995 for this year's Grammys. 

The rapper still had the high-fashion, show-stopping red carpet gown -- and the additional two Mugler looks she wore throughout the night -- on her mind a week after the awards ceremony and took to social media to express her gratitude to Mugler.

"I want to do this video to thank Thierry Mugler because for him to lend me his archived pieces -- they haven't been worn since 1995 -- was a dream for me," she said in a video uploaded to Instagram and Twitter Sunday night (Feb. 17).

"I want to say thank you for choosing me, choosing Cardi, for me to wear your pieces that you don't lend to nobody. A lot of people at home didn't understand how much it means to me because a lot of y'all motherf---ers, y'all too simple. Y'all simple, y'all be thinking that Gucci, Prada and Versace is the only high-end name brands. Y'all don't understand. But for me, this is a big fashion moment for me. I don't feel like nothing could ever top this off. I just want to say thank you from the bottom of my crusty heart," expressed Cardi, who was the first solo female rapper to take home the Grammy for best rap album (Invasion of Privacy).
