Happy belated birthday, Cardi B! Yesterday, the rapper turned 28, and she marked the milestone by dressing up in Las Vegas. Cardi put her glamorous style on full display this weekend: She slipped into a striking gown by Lena Berisha, a label out of Kosovo, which included a cagey metallic top and draped skirt. She also wore luxurious diamond earrings from Gismondi 1754. It’s a red carpet-ready look, and we would expect nothing less from a star who is known to lounge by the pool in vintage Chanel and Hermès. A special birthday calls for an even more special look.
Even more special, however, was the surprise birthday gift that Cardi received from Kylie Jenner this weekend. (She starred in the “WAP” music video with her and Megan Thee Stallion, in case you forgot.) On her Instagram Stories, Cardi posted a video of her unboxing a gift that arrived from Jenner. Inside lay a baby blue Hermès Birkin bag. “Look at this Birkin! Thank you, Kylie Jenner,” Cardi said in the video. “Bing Bylie—she goes by King Kylie, but you know we gotta B, B, B.” It’s a generous gift, but for a generous person: Lest we not forget that Cardi also gifted Megan Thee Stallion a customized Birkin bag this summer as well. In the world of A-list celebrities, it seems a Birkin bag is the new birthday card.
