Cardi has been wearing looks that are just as out of this world as her personality, and there's no denying that she's become fashion's "it" girl in just a short time. Designers like Dolce & Gabbana and Moschino have been dressing her for major events and even for her stage looks. The "Bodak Yellow" rapper has been taking full advantage that she has access to these high-end brands and the best stylists in the game.

One of the best ways she has used fashion to benefit her is when she chose the perfect looks to help her conceal her pregnancy. Cardi and her stylist made sure that the outfits she chose were going to help keep her secret--and it worked for quite some time! Cardi has delivered some insane and outrageous looks ever since she became a major star, so scroll through to see some of her most daring and risk-taking looks so far.
