Cardi B Looked Like a Real-Life Betty Boop at the Oscars After-Party
Cardi B is a delight to see on any red carpet because she always brings her A-game in the fashion and beauty departments. Of course, we expect nothing less from the rapper for the 2023 Oscars night, where she dazzled us with her red ensemble, matching lip, and finger waves that made her look like a real-life Betty Boop.
On March 12, the Bronx rapper arrived at the 2023 Vanity Fair Oscar party in a bright-red gown with a matching mesh veil covering her face. Behind the floor-length red mesh, you could see her vibrant red lipstick, fluffy lashes, and long cat-eye with the sharpest of tips, all painted by her makeup artist, Erika La' Pearl.
Cardi's hairstylist, Tokyo Stylez, parted her hair on the side, slicked it down, and molded the pieces into a wave. Stylez took a few strands and finessed them into two swirly loops, one near each temple, to complete the style. As for Cardi's claws, she opted for a minimalist look with nude, sharpened stiletto tips.
It's clear that the finger waves and red lips were the true stars of this look. They also resemble Betty Boop's signature look, but neither Cardi nor Stylez has confirmed or denied if the iconic cartoon character was on their inspiration board for the night.
Regardless, Cardi B did what she always does best at red carpet events: She stuns. There are rarely if ever any moments when she isn't making our jaws drop and this Betty Boop look snatched our wigs effortlessly.
