The ruby red nipples that complemented Cardi B’s stunning 2019 Met Gala dress apparently cost her $500,000 alone.
In a video interview Vogue Cardi explains the lavish jewels that sat on top of her Thom Browne-designed silk and organza gown featured 44-carat rubies. The custom-made rubies on her boobies were crafted by jewelry designer Corina Mihaila Larpin’s luxe jewelry brand Stefere, and cost her $250,000 each.
“These are Ruby nipples by Stefere. $250,000 each,” Cardi explains to Liza Koshy.
The ruby bra is all apart of her extravagant gown, which includes an enormous 10-foot train, hand-embroidered bugle beads and 30,000 burned and dyed feathers. A crystal-encrusted headpiece by milliner Stephen Jones and pebbled leather platform brogues completed her jaw-dropping look. According to The Hollywood Reporter, it took 35 people over 2,000 hours to create.
