Two days following the show down at the Bazaar gala between Cardi B and Nicki Minaj, rap-related current events take a more upbeat turn with news that Tom Ford has created a lipstick bearing Cardi’s name.
The dusty blue “Cardi” lipstick is one of 50 shades that make up Tom Ford’s Lips & Boys collection with shades named after women the designer admires. (Though given Cardi’s status as a card-carrying Blood, we can’t help but wonder why she ended up with a shade of blue not red!)
The lipstick announcement follows Card’s attendance at Tom Ford’s spring 2019 presentation during New York Fashion Week. In response to the roll out, Cardi wrote on Instagram, “Thank you so much @tomfordand @tomfordbeauty!!! So excited for this and what’s to come!!”
The co-sign from Ford comes at an important moment for Cardi because it comes on the heels of rampant speculation on social media that she would lose endorsements opportunities because of her rough behavior at the Harper’s Bazaar party where she was thrown out after threatening Minaj and ultimately pitching a shoe at her.
At the same time, some have pointed out the lipstick deal was signed before the fight and thus it’s too soon to say whether her behavior will have an impact.
Priced at $36, “Cardi” is now available for pre-order and will ship on September 9, 2018.
Check out the shade below.
