Cardi B’s Stylist Kollin Carter on Her ‘Bold’ and ‘Out There’ Looks
"She’s really into the dramatics."
How does a “regular, degular, schmegular” girl from the Bronx, N.Y., become a Grammy-nominated artist with a certified platinum record in less than a year? Call it the Cardi B come up.
Known for her unfiltered personality and record-breaking hit “Bodak Yellow,” 25-year-old Cardi B has become a musical sensation, and the fashion world is taking note. Rapping about her “bloody shoes” — aka Louboutins — hasn’t just put Cardi on Mr. Louboutin’s radar, it’s earned her front row seats at fall fashion week, a partnership with Steve Madden, who considers himself her male counterpart, and a headlining performance at Jeremy Scott’s Art Basel Miami party last week. Not too shabby, huh?
Stylist Kollin Carter was originally brought on for Cardi’s July/August Fader cover and is now her go-to guy. His background includes editorial work, as well as three years on celebrity stylist Law Roach’s team. WWD caught up with Carter about Cardi B, her favorite pieces and what’s to come.
