Cards B's 2nd Fashion Nova CollectionMakes 1 Million Dollars Over Night

Cardi B has proven that she knows exactly how to shut down any red (or pink Met Gala) carpet as soon as she steps onto the scene. The spotlight seems to come naturally to the rapper, and that’s likely because she’s never been afraid to showcase her personality through her clothing choices. And on Wednesday, the chart-topping musician gave her fans yet another chance to rock some Cardi-inspired looks with the launch of the Fashion Nova x Cardi B collection, which is available in both straight and plus sizes.
This marked the Grammy winner’s second collaboration with the brand; but instead of coming back with another fall/winter wardrobe, she mostly skipped the fur this time around and created more summery styles. She also added some nostalgic elements of the '80s and '90s, such as vegan leather, latex, and color block details — all very reminiscent of her "Finesse" music video with Bruno Mars. Fans were likely also happy to know that Cardi continued naming her clothes after her catchy lyrics like the "Drip Drip Biker Shorts" and "I'm Livin' My Best Life Denim Set."
But despite the success of her previous Fashion Nova partnership, coupled with her ever rising stardom, Cardi still admitted that she was nervous about how the line would be received. “I don’t know how people are going to react to it,” Cardi told Bustle prior to the launch. “I hope they love it. It’s hard when you do something that you think is so good and someone tells you it’s not. I hope that doesn’t happen to me.” However, much like her first drop, nearly everything sold out just a few days after its release — proving that the rapper's still got the magic touch when it comes to creating clothing people love.
