What She Wore: Cardi B's Glam Holiday Style

Cardi B, Billboard's latest cover star, is really getting into the holiday spirit. The hip-hop artist made an appearance on Jimmy Fallon’s The Tonight Show on Wednesday in a green look that lived up to the iconic Christmas tree that stands tall next to the show’s studio.

Her festive ensemble showcased the popular holiday hue and a whole lot of fur. The 25-year-old wore a Rubin Singer jacket that featured massive dark green fuzzy sleeves, black pants, and of course, a pair of what she refers to as "bloody shoes." Instead of opting for a standard black pump, Cardi took her outfit to the next level by slipping on jade-colored Christian Louboutin heels that complemented her top perfectly.

The stylishly polished look garnered a wave of both positive and negative comments, but Cardi made it known that she's in no way obligated to dress one certain way. The "Bodak Yellow" hitmaker shut down social media trolls with an Instagram post captioned: "If I wear a leotard with boots, I'm dressed like a hoe. If I dress like this, I'm not being myself. Being myself is FASHION." Now that's how you prove a point and make a statement.

Even before all the green, Cardi already had her Christmas nails freshly prepped and ready for the holiday season. She chose bright-red stiletto-style claws embellished with a bedazzled crystal design. We can only imagine what extravagant look she’ll pull together for the 25th.
