Cardi B’s custom-edition watch gloves are the talk of fashion town after the Bronx femcee star rocked the Christian Cowan pieces for her gold-drippy “Money” single cover art.
But before the ritzy gauntlets landed on the arms of Bardi, they were in the hands of Barbadian songstress, beauty and fashion mogul Rihanna, who called them “the most ghetto sh**” she’d ever seen in her life. The gloves caught RiRi’s attention back in August during her British Vogue interview with editor-in-chief Edward Enniful as they shopped through luxury wardrobe items for her to grace the British Vogue September cover shoot with. Anyone who knows Rihanna is privy to her eye for anything totally outlandish, unorthodox and unapologetically nonconformist in the fashion and style world. Thus, the chances are that RiRi wasn’t actually turning her nose up at the gloves with her remark. But fans are taking her comments and running with them anyway in an attempt to pit RiRi shade at Cardi’s style choice with the designer gear.
