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’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 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.
