The 'Bodak Yellow' hitmaker looks up to the likes of lady Gaga and Missy Elliot, as well as her Hustler's co-star Jennifer Lopez when it comes to her fashion looks. 

Of course, Fenty founder Rihanna is another inspiration for Cardi.

Cardi has also previously teamed up with Fashion Nova to create her own line of clothes and has said her favourite part of the design process is seeing the final product. 

"The sketches always look good, but a good outcome is the greatest, but sometimes it can be terrible," Cardi B said during an interview for the Vogue 73 Questions series.
