Cardi B/Instagram

Cardi B has kept it real about not showing her post-baby body until she felt like she was ready to do so. But the rapper, who welcomed daughter, Kulture, on July 10, seemed more than prepared when she made her first official appearance since becoming a mom at the MTV 2018 Video Music Awards in August.

Cardi turned heads in a gorgeous off the shoulder gown, which also had a plunging neckline. She also wore a new hairstyle and traded her usual long locks for a black, pixie haircut. The new look definitely highlighted her face and she looked grown-up and sexy.

While she has been rather active on social media since her baby's arrival, she hasn't shared that many pics of herself. The ones that she has posted are proof that she is quickly snapping back into shape, and her body looks just as good, if not better, than before! Motherhood, although she has admitted that is far more difficult than she thought, has definitely treated Cardi well. While she hasn't shared pics of baby Kulture yet, it's clear through her videos about being a mommy that she's in love with her daughter. 

Cardi is not letting her new mom title take away from her bigger than life personality and she's continuing to share provocative videos of herself dancing, as well as wearing some form-fitting outfits. Scroll through to take a look at some of Cardi's best looks since she welcomed her daughter.
