The September issue has always been a big deal for fashion, beauty, and entertainment. One of the best parts of these issues is the cover shoot because the looks are always a moment. Currently, I am obsessing over Cardi B’s Vogue Mexico cover where her brushed-out curls and blinding glowy skin made me fall to my knees.
Saying Cardi B looks stunning feels like an absolute understatement. Vogue Mexico posted the photos from the shoot on August 25 on its Instagram, and the very first image features the rapper in an all-black outfit with her hands on her hips and large, frizzy curls around her. “Su nombre lo conoces, ahora es tiempo de que sepas la historia detrás de la cantante dispuesta a seguir la tradición, mientras escribe su leyenda,” the caption begins. That roughly translates to, “You know her name, now it’s time to learn where the artist came from as she writes her own story.”
The moment I saw her brushed-out curls I thought of the iconic Diana Ross who is known for her hair as much as she is for her music. Cardi’s go-to hairstylist Tokyo Stylez clearly embodied the ethos of “go big or go home” while styling her hair. She gave Cardi a rough side part and left the frizzy curls around her covering part of her face and trailing all the way toward her hips.
