On the heels of an epic BET Awards performance this past Sunday, Cardi B returned to New York this week to appear in court to fight charges stemming from an altercation she was allegedly involved in at a New York strip club last year.
Swanning into the courtroom with a group of bodyguards surrounding her, Cardi wore a navy blue double-breasted pantsuit with large, sharp-edged lapels and pockets in light pink with her navy blue lob resting right on her shoulder. She paired the look with a baby pink Birkin bag and single-strap stilettos.
Charges aside, Cardi B has made all of her courtroom appearances her own red carpet, donning dramatic ensembles down NYC busy streets that seem like an episode plucked straight from Gossip Girl. Cardi B’s courtroom catwalk began in January when she appeared in court dressed to the nines in (faux?) fur from head to toe. In April, she returned to court in an all-white Christian Siriano jumpsuit and a brown Birkin bag, captioning a photo of her look “COURT FLOW @csiriano X Birkinpussy.”
Then in May, she made another appearance in court in a hot pink pantsuit and patent pink pumps.
Last Friday, Cardi was indicted by a grand jury on 14 charges, including two felony charges, assault, misdemeanor reckless endangerment and more, TMZ reported. Yesterday, she plead not guilty to the new charges.
