Cardi B truly stunned around the pink carpet of last night’s Met Gala. The “Get Up 10” music maker dressed in a Thom Browne-designed gown with 44-carat rubies on each nipple. According to XXL report, each crafted jewel (by jewelry designer Corina Mihaila Larpin’s luxe jewelry brand Stefere) cost $250, 000 each. “If I lose one of these, I’m gonna have to sell one of my Birkin bags, ” Cardi said of her detailed design.

The complex gown was covered in 30, 000 burned and dyed coque feathers and a 10-foot train, that altogether took 2, 000 hours to make.

“I designed this dress for Cardi specifically because she has the ultimate beauty in a woman’s body, and that is what the dress is about for me: taking advantage of that beauty,” Thom Browne said of the lovely dress.
