The 28-year-old half-Dominican American rap superstar has been given a special award as part of Footwear News’ FN Achievement Awards.
The “WAP” singer has been named Style Influencer of the Year, which is no surprise as she’s always including high-end kicks in her lyrics (red bottoms and those Balenciagas, the ones that look like socks).
On November 13, Cardi B will be dropping a full collaboration with Reebok, which she announced on her birthday earlier this month. The Cardi B Club C sneakers feature a black and white design with a see-through sole, and are available in toddler and adult sizes, costing $50 and $100, respectively.
“I’ve always been into fashion. Back then, I couldn’t afford what I wanted, now I can. It’s easier and I have more connections with brands,” Cardi B told Footwear News. “I could wear the most uncomfortable shoe and I’m just going to take it and love it because it’s fashion, it’s beauty, it’s amazing, it’s different. I get bored, so that’s when me and my stylist [Kollin Carter], we get creative and come up with something new and amazing.”
Cardi will accept the honor during the first virtual FNAAs on December 8.

Puma has announced the signing of the 28-year-old Brazilian soccer star after the Paris Saint-Germain player left Nike following a 15-year association.
Neymar’s arrival was announced on the Puma website alongside the banner “The king is back” and “Welcome to the family Neymar JR.”
Neymar wrote in a statement on his Twitter page: “At the beginning of each new season, I take some time to think about my career and the choices I have made. I think about the dreams I had when I started this sport, and the path that lies ahead.
“This will be a different season, a special season. For that reason, as I have done in the past, I decided to write this text.
“I am about to live a unique experience, a new challenge. I consider myself privileged to have had a life filled with unique experiences and wonderful challenges.
“I grew up watching videos of great football legends such as Pele, Cruyff, Matthaus, Eusebio and Maradona … These were the kings of the pitch, the kings of my sport. And they had something in common — a love of the game, a drive to be the best version of themselves and a spirit that unites all. It’s not always about being the best or the greatest but instead, to inspire future generations. That is exactly what I have dreamt of for myself, to give all of me to football because football has given me everything I have. I want to do it my way, using my gift.
“New challenges, new responsibilities, I understand that. I wish to bring back the legacy that those athletes created on the pitch. I was to help bring back memories from each of their football histories and the magic they gave us in their classic leather boots — and through boots like those, leave behind my own legacy. They each played in PUMA, and each of them created their magic in The KING.
“And so now, as I begin this new season, I want the KING to reign on the pitch and inspire generations as it has inspired me and others.
“To be in this project, associating myself to those Kings of football, through KING, it is a dream. For these reasons, from today onward, I have the honour to unite with the brand that helped the biggest legends of football become what they are. Every time I lace my boots, my KING boots, I will do anything to achieve all of my dreams to honour my name and that of all those great ones who wore the KING before me. This will be my PUMA history. The KING is back!”
Sources told ESPN that only four executives knew about the deal to land Neymar and it was “a big secret in the company” that they had been working to sign the player for several months.
He returned to training with PSG on Friday after missing their opening Ligue 1 fixture of the campaign, a 1-0 defeat at Lens, following a positive test for the coronavirus.
Neymar joined PSG from Barcelona in 2017 for a world-record €222 million fee and has won three Ligue 1 titles in Paris. He also helped the French club reach the Champions League final in August, where they were beaten 1-0 by Bayern Munich.
During his time at Barca he won the Champions League, FIFA Club World Cup and two La Liga titles.
If you rap it, it will happen… at least for Cardi B…
The 27-year-old half-Dominican American rap superstar, who raps the lyrics “I like those Balenciagas, the ones that look like socks” will now be repping the Spanish luxury fashion house.
Cardi B has been announced as the new face of Balenciaga. The clothing label, founded in 1917 by Basque designer Cristóbal Balenciaga, took to Twitter to share the promo photos behind their new line featuring the “WAP” rapper.
“New Face of Balenciaga,” Cardi wrote in a retweet of the photo.
Shot and styled by Cardi B’s team in her home in L.A., the imagery features the rapper wearing a black catsuit-dress hybrid from creative director Demna Gvasalia’s Fall 2020 collection. Cardi is lying on what appears to be an astro-turf surface, surrounded by a slide and kids toys, as well as Balenciaga’s Neo Classic bag in white. On Instagram, the rapper also shared an image of a giant billboard featuring the new campaign, which is being displayed on the side of the Louvre museum in Paris. In her caption, she wrote that she remembers how it felt to see herself on a billboard in Times Square for the first time but, in her words, “PARIS! Wish I was there to see it in person.”
The 26-year-old Spanish Grammy-winning singer-songwriter has teamed up with MAC Cosmetics to launch VG26, the makeup company’s all-new, limited-edition, fiery-red MAC Viva Glam lipstick shade.
Influenced by flamenco, urban rhythms, electronic beats — and a feminist ethos — MAC says Rosalia embodies passion, courage and originality that inspires us and her fans across the world.
“The incredible charisma, energy and strength of Rosalía is the perfect incarnation of this vibrant, saturated red,” says director of makeup artistry Baltasar González Pinel. “Taking its roots in flamenco, Rosalía’s art mixes genres and emotions — it takes risks, it is full of generosity, it is pure brilliance.”
“It’s an honor to be the face of Viva Glam 26 and to champion a cause that is inclusive, supports individuality and gives back 100%,” says Rosalía of becoming the brand’s newest MACtivist.
Since 1994, MAC Viva Glam has raised more than $500,000,000 globally. Every cent of the selling price of MAC’s Viva Glam lipstick is donated to the MAC Viva Glam Fund, supporting healthy futures and equal rights for all.
“We are beyond proud to join forces with the incomparable Rosalía, who will elevate
the MAC Viva Glam campaign to new levels this year. Aside from her epic voice
and coveted style, Rosalía is deeply committed to improving the lives of people living with HIV/AIDS around the globe, especially those most vulnerable, including women, girls and the LGBTQIA+ community,” says John Demsey, chairman of the MAC Viva Glam Fund & executive group president, The Estée Lauder Companies Inc.
VG26 has a suggested retail price of $19. It’ll be available in North America on September 24 at select MAC locations and online at maccosmetics.com.
In an up close photograph taken by Steven Klein, Cardi B appears on the cover rocking a crystal wig by Area that completely covers her head and hair, putting her beautiful face on full display. The dazzling wig featured long strands of diamonds that hang down the sides of her chest while the rest encompass her entire head and wrap around her neck.
She brings evenmore glam-ness to the image by rocking Mordekaiby Ken Borochov diamond bracelet cuffs, which feature long silver strands hanging down. A strapless crystal-embellished dress and three diamond piercings down her sternum add even more pizazz to her look.
For Cardi B’s makeup on the cover, she rocks a sultry light brown smokey eye with voluminous lashes and a nude lip lined in dark brown and covered in a shiny gloss.
Throughout the photo shoot, Cardi put her labret piercing on full display, revealing a tiny diamond stud pierced below the center of her bottom lip, just above her chin. Insanely long pointed black tip fingernails complete her edgy cover.
And Cardi B’s cover shoot just keeps getting better as she is pictured throughout the magazine in a slew of shiny looks. In one photo, she’s seen in head-to-toe Paco Rabanne, as her head is covered in a gold and silver chain hood, while she rocks a matching metal top. The hood is made up of gold and silver triangle charms which cover her forehead while the metal top is low cut.
In another look, Cardi B stuns in a long-sleeve silver and black off-the-shoulder sequin Balenciaga top while wearing a mesh black Swarovski crystal veil by Keren Wolf to cover her face. Her hair is done down in a super short straight black bob with blunt bangs covering her forehead.
The glamorous feel of the shoot feels like a far cry from the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, when magazines were relying exclusively on self-shot images of stars in their homes.
In the cover story, written by Marjon Carlos, Cardi B talks about politics and activism, from her outrage at the way Breonna Taylor was killed to her plea for fans to become more civically engaged at all levels of government.
“You can vote for DAs. You can vote for mayors. You can vote for your district. Not everything is the president. You know what I’m saying?” she said.
Cardi B also opened up about the frequent attempts to cancel her (“it’s like I have a target on my back, but it’s not because of my music”), her sometimes-controversial relationship with husband Offset (“I feel like people would rather start rumors because they want me to be heartbroken”) and her upcoming album (“my music is always going to make a woman feel like a bad bitch”).

“For me, it’s really important to be that open book that I’ve always been since the beginning of my career and the truth is, many things inspire me beyond just music,” Becky G tellsBillboard. “To be able to transition into something new is exciting for me but also comes very naturally.”
Inspired by her Mexican-American roots and Latinx vibes, Becky G’s fashionable line includes eight different styles because “it’s versatile like me!
For the “Mayores” singer, affordability and quality were key in teaming up with the glasses brand.
“That’s important because one of my responsibilities as an artist is to know that my audience, at the end of the day, is mostly hard-working individuals who are still going to school and I want them to know that they will be investing in something that’s worth it.”
Becky G’s collection, with all pairs selling for only $30, ships worldwide. And, two of the pairs have already sold out: the 33 Clear Crystal + Blue Light, and the 333 Black Grey styles.
“When we started this collab, I wanted to make something that was amazing AND affordable,” tweeted Becky G. “So excited guys are liking them already.”
