The star’s debut presenter look was especially dramatic, comprised of a long-sleeved black velvet dress with a thigh-high slit. Cardi’s outfit gained more glamor thanks to the crystal accents on the cuffs and neckline, as well as a huge black feather headdress. The singer completed the look with black pointed-toe shoes with crystal straps at the ankles.

The next set was similar, with another black velvet dress with a slit, although this number had a plunging square neckline, structured shoulders, and wide sleeves. The “Bodak Yellow” singer arrived perched on a pile of Louis Vuitton suitcases, covering her dress with a fine diamond necklace, earrings and numerous rings. Her look was completed with a spectacular pair of sparkly and stretchy thigh-high boots.

The “Be Careful” singer’s penchant for feathers was prominent in her sixth look, in a tight purple cut dress. The long-sleeved piece featured matching feather accents on both shoulders, as well as a chandelier-like crystal ornament on her bust.
