As the first solo female rapper to top the singles chart in 19 years, Cardi B, mentions the famous Louis Vuitton shoes in her song saying: “These expensive, these is red bottoms/ These is bloody shoes/ Hit the store, I can get ’em both/I don’t wanna choose.” Louboutin told The New York Times that he appreciated the musical shout-out but he is not familiar with Cardi B. “I don’t know much more than that, to be honest,” Louboutin adds, confessing that he’s “not a big rap person.”
But how big of a fan of Louboutin is Cardi B?
“She has to have over 90 pairs. She usually buys a pair or two every couple of weeks,” her stylist Kollin Carter told Billboard. “Before ‘Bodak’ blew up, she wore red bottoms because that’s what it means to make it in the Bronx. It’s a status symbol that the masses can relate to; everyday girls work hard and save up their money to have that shoe. Cardi did the same.”
Wow 90 pairs! Danielle still can't get over that and we can't blame her!
