All The Looks From Cardi B & Megan Thee Stallion’s ‘WAP’ Music Video

Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion dropped the music video for their song ‘WAP’ back on August 7, and it cause quite a stir.

Not only for the explicit lyrics, and unnecessary camo by Kylie Jenner, but also for the abundance of looks which ranged from risky to risqué.  

The four-minute clip takes you on a colourful ride where Cardi and Megan rock everything from bodysuits with trains, eye-popping cut-out details, animal prints, and latex fabric.

Their main look sees them match in style wearing custom Nicolas Jebran off-the-shoulder bodysuits in hot pink and sunflower yellow featuring a long train and feathered gloves.

Cardi wore matching pink suede Casadei ‘Blade’ pumps with her look.

I would say this was their chicest looks from this video.

Another scene sees them both wearing custom Bryan Hearns army green and mustard yellow lingerie sets featuring a molded snake leather bra and a cage corset.

I think they both looked really beautiful here. The looks perfectly suited the scene.

In the leopard room Cardi is seen doing the splits wearing a custom Mugler look with…erm…cut outs at the front and gold nipple covers from Bijules Jewelry and a hair cuff from Ariana Boussard-Reifel

My favourite part of this look was the chain link hair which was created by Tokyo Stylez who has been Cardi’s hairstylist for some time.  I love his innovative creations.

Leopard print ‘Blade’ pumps from Casadei completed this look.

Megan’s look for her solo part also saw her perform in animal print.  Zigman created this beautiful corset to match the exotic wild cats which appeared in the video (with much controversy).

In the Willy Wonka style room decked out in lime green and purple, both ladies rocked Mulger sheer bodysuit with matching hosiery which looked like they were inspired by the brands Spring 2020 collection by Casey Cadwallader.

There was always going to be some latex featured in this video. 

Venus Prototype, who also created a latex bodysuit for Beyonce’s visual album, ‘Black is King,’ designed the laser cut rubber latex fishnet with steel boned corsets for both ladies, and their dancers, for the ‘water world’ scene.

I have to say I much prefer Megan’s look here as it feels sexier, and less like it was purchased from a Soho back alley store compared to Cardi’s version.

Surprise cameos from stars such as Normani, Rosalía, and Kylie Jenner.

Normani black and white Alaia for WAP video

Normani’s performance blew everyone elses away with her dance solo wearing a vintage Spring 1991 black and white houndstooth look from Alaia.   

It was a beautiful throwback look, which was oozing with plenty of Parisian flare thanks to the styling.

Rosalía also wore a custom Venus Prototype latex look which was inspired by her Spanish roots.

The ‘TKN’ singer wore torero inspired head-to-toe red latex outfit styled with sky-high platform heels with a hat reminiscent of a Montera hat.

If you look closely in the video, you’ll see Rosalía’s nails were adorned with charms.

Kylie Jenner leopard Rey Ortiz outfit for WAP

Kylie Jenner had the longest camo in this video, despite doing or saying nothing.  What I did love about her appearance was the stunning animal print bodysuit and flowing train which was created by Rey Ortiz.

While I’m not a fan of the song by any means – and it has little to do with the lyrics. I just think Megan is so much better than this song itself which she does her very best to carry with her amazing rapping skills – visually this was a very creative video, and much like Beyonce’s video, I love that they worked with talented underground designers.

Stylists who worked on this included Kollin Carter, EJ King, Samantha Burkhart, and Damien Lloyd.

Personal feelings about the song aside, the style and outfits embraced the song’s theme of female sexuality perfectly.

    I love Normani’s outfit. Wish we could see her wear it on a red carpet. I also shockingly really liked Kylie’s look.

    ewwww

    Ladies? Please. What is the obsession with shoving your naked butt in the world’s face all the time? Enough already. Tacky and tasteless.

    As someone who’s listened to hip hop for decades, I’ve heard all the sexual bragging and seen all the outrage before. WAP is okay but hardly groundbreaking. Missy and Ludacris killed it in Minute Man, for example. I really appreciate these stills from the video to get a chance to look at the outfits. They all work for the genre and for a video. I could see any of these outfits on a range of female music stars. I don’t think the ladies were thinking “red carpet” when they chose these looks. The weakest one here is Cardi B’s Venus Prototype look. Love the Mugler body suits and Norman’s look (and her impressive moves in the video — I thought that was a professional dancer until I recognized her). Nicholas Jebran has to do better with his sketches.

      I take it back. I can’t see anyone but Cardi B in the leopard outfit with the nipple covers.

      Firstly, Normani looks amazing.

      Secondly, I mean…It’s Cardi B, this is her vibe, if you like it or not. She is overtly sexual, more power to her, but a lot of the looks could have totally played into that without looking so run of the mill.

    The black and white houndstooth look from Alaia works – it’s risque but at the same time there’s a fashionable sense of style and character there. I can even see Janelle Monáe pulling it off on a red carpet. The rest just looks sleazy to me, sorry. And it’s not just outfits – it’s the makeup and overall presence. I guess, that’s the image they’re going for as performers in the first place.

      Yes. This would be a great look for Janelle

    I was so hoping for these two to collaborate on a track but this song is such a disappointment. Be raunchy by all means but this song throughout felt half-as*ed, gimmicky, lacking creativity and cheap.
    Megan’s Savage remix with Beyonce was sooo much better. Catchy lyrics, great beat and good energy.

      In theory it was a great idea. But bar for bar, Cardi just isn’t on Megan’s level.

    Did I really dare clicking on the link of Cardi’s leopard room performance ..? Oh lord …

    I am not sure whether they deserve to be called “ladies” despite really trying not to look and behave like one.
