Cardi B stole the show at Paris Fashion Week on Sunday.

While attending the Thom Browne Womenswear Spring/Summer 2020 show, the rapper stepped out wearing a gray ensemble created by the designer. She wore a gray suit jacket with padded shoulders, sleeves, and hips, as well as a matching padded skirt. 

The outfit was originally created by Thom Browne as part of his Fall 2018 Ready-to-Wear collection.

To complete the look, Cardi added three accessories designed by Thom Browne: platform heels, an oversized handbag, and gold-rimmed glasses.

At the time of writing, her Oxford-style heels are sold out. However, an Instagram that documents the rapper’s outfits, called Cardi B Closet, says the shoes previously cost $2,421. Her alligator-skin handbag, on the other hand, is still available to purchase from Thom Browne for $41,000.

After sharing a video of herself wearing the outfit on Instagram, some people called out the fact that while Cardi was seemingly allowed to wear the ensemble, Muslim women who wear face-covering niqabs or burkas in France are not allowed to do so.

The country implemented a ban on full-face veils back in 2011, which imposes a fine of €150, or $163, on those who wear the garments.

Representatives for Cardi B and Richard Quinn did not respond to Insider’s previous requests for comment.
