Wendy Williams may be a fan of Cardi B, but she’s not so keen on the rapper’s courtroom style.
“I love Cardi, don’t take this the wrong way, but this is for everybody going to court: You have to have a certain amount of humble respect for why you’re there,” the TV host, 54, said on Tuesday’s episode of her talk show.
“This is a very wealthy woman, and she’s got very, very lovely breasts, but there’s a time and a place to show them … but I wouldn’t wear this to court,” Williams continued, referencing the hot pink Ferragamo suit the 26-year-old musician wore sans shirt in late May.
And while the host found the white Christian Siriano ensemble Cardi chose for a May court appearance “lovely,” she called it “too couture for court” — and took serious issue with the rapper’s decision to pair it with a handbag worth five figures.
“The Birkin bag, you don’t carry that to court!” she exclaimed. “You don’t carry a multi-thousand-dollar bag … you carry something understated.”
“It’s like wearing a fur coat to the welfare office, and a splash of diamonds,” Williams added. “There’s some things you just kinda don’t do.”
Joe Tacopino, the lawyer representing the alleged victims in Cardi’s assault case that centers on a 2018 strip club brawl, recently shared his opinions on the star’s court attire in an exclusive interview with the Post.
“Cardi treats her trips to the courthouse like a runway show,” Tacopino said. “Here’s a woman who got indicted by a grand jury with felony charges, and appears to only be concerned about what she’s wearing. There’s going to be a ‘Come to Jesus’ moment with her, because it’s not consistent with someone who’s taking this seriously.”
The “Money” rapper hit back at the attorney’s comments in a series of since-deleted Instagram videos over the weekend.
“I don’t dress inappropriate when I go to court. I dress like a young f—king lady,” Cardi said. “Where am I supposed to get my suits from, bro?! H&M?! Why are you worried about the way I dress?”
Continued the Grammy winner, “I understand that I’m showing my titties, I’m going to court all crazy, but it’s like … I cannot control that there’s 100 cameras outside every single time I go to court … If I was a man it would not bother you.”
It seems that final point is something both Cardi and Williams can agree upon. “Sometimes men don’t need to say anything about how a woman can dress herself,” the TV personality opined during Tuesday’s segment. “Like, shut up!”
