Skeletons, witches, and black cats are always reliable Halloween costume ideas (especially if you’re in a last minute time crunch), but they don’t have to be the only option. A standout IG-worthy look is as easy as dressing up as your favorite celebrity, and who better to bring the party to Halloween get-togethers than Cardi B?
The rapper has had quite an eventful year with the release of her record-breaking album Invasion Of Privacy, a brand new baby, lots of drama, and plenty of stunning red carpet moments. But in every one of her memorable appearances lives a Cardi B costume to replicate come October 31. Plus, some of them are as simple as putting on a wig and pulling out makeup you already love.
We’ve rounded up some of her buzziest looks to get your costume juices flowing, ahead. Because once you pick a Cardi B look you wanna party with, all that’s left to do is put on your favorite Invasion Of Privacy track and practice your best “OWWWW!” in the mirror.
If you want to be the center of attention in a group costume this year, get a long blue wig and tie the front half into a topknot. Bonus points if you get two of your pals to go as Kris Jenner and Kim K. to recreate this epic selfie.
To replicate this iconic Milan Fashion Week Moment you’re gonna have to get creative. Cover a pair of sunglasses you don’t mind ruining in leopard print pom-poms, find a feline-inspired outfit, and don’t forget a blond wig.

If you’re really out to win the Best Costume contest, then mirroring Cardi’s iconic Met Gala look will put you in first place. Once you purchase (or DIY) a replica of her bejeweled dress and headpiece, you’ll need to get a curly black wig and tease it for volume. Complete your costume with a matte red lipstick and a baby bump.

This can be an easy last minute costume to replicate. That is, once you get your hands on a rainbow wig. Just pop on some false lashes, apply a coat of matte lipstick, and throw on a plunging white tank top to complete your look.

You don’t have to wear a rainbow wig to work all day if that isn’t your thing. Instead, channel Cardi’s Coachella look by simply tying your hair into two pigtails and focusing your energy on the real star: her nails.
