A grand jury indicted Grammy-winner singer and rapper Cardi B on 12 charges regarding an attack that happened at a Queen strip club in August 2018. Earlier this week, she appeared in court regarding those charges. While in court on June 25, 2019, for her arraignment, Cardi B cut a striking figure. Though there were serious matters at hand, Cardi B didn’t miss an opportunity to make a fashion statement and now her hairstylist and makeup artist are weighing in on how they prepared Cardi B for her court appearance.
Additionally, Cardi B wore a Brogger Gurli suit (available at Barneys New York) that is color-blocked navy blue and pink. Cardi B paired the outfit with a pink Hermes handbag and wore open-toed black shoes. The suit and slacks cost approximately 2,000 as stated on Barney’s site.
Fans loved Cardi B’s outfit as well as her hair and makeup. Photos of Cardi B attending court have gone viral and not just for the legal matters at hand. Many are praising her sleek-blue bob and flawless makeup a well.

While many people praised Cardi’s suit, hair and makeup, there were some who felt that her suit jacket was too revealing for court as Cardi chose not to wear a blouse underneath it. Many felt that because of that she even disrespected the courtroom and the judge.
One person responded about Cardi’s low cut top.
“Sorry, but I don’t care how much money you have. Court is court. Having ya bits out isn’t professional. I have the same respect for people who do this as much as the people who show up to court in sweat pants. Court is not a fashion show.“Advertisement
What do you think about Cardi B’s court outfit? Do you think it was appropriate to go before the judge in a low cut top? Is there such a thing as being too fashionable for a courtroom?
