– Cardi B enters the Queens Criminal Court in New York City in a larger-than-life feathered coat by Adrienne Landau.
– The rapper is contesting a brawl with two bartenders at Angel’s Strip Club in College Point, Queens.
This her latest of multiple photographed courtroom appearances in 2019.
Cardi B gave a whole new meaning to courtroom drama on Tuesday. The rapper entered the Queens Criminal Court in New York City in an audacious fur and feather coat with a long train by—think: Marc Jacob’s Fall 2012 collection. She paired the outré piece by designer Adrienne Landau with a thin black tie, white button-down, trousers, and a pair of Christian Louboutin stilettos.
Cardi B (née Belcalis Almánzar) appeared more somber inside, plucking off her feathers when facing the judge. The 27-year-old is accused of getting into a physical altercation with two bartenders at Angel’s Strip Club in College Point, Queens in August 2018.

This isn’t the first time that the singer has teetered on the verge of wearing acceptable attire. Among her many courtroom appearances in 2019, she wore a hot-pink pantsuit with matching pumps, and a navy two-piece suit, both bearing ample amounts of cleavage.
If anything, Cardi is staying true to her own brand (sexy, whimsical, and unapologetic), and is appearing lighthearted as she faces charges that could reportedly put her behind bars for four years. Here’s hoping she doesn’t ruffle up any feathers with prosecutors, and will fly out of all this litigation smoothly. The jury, however, is still out on whether this look needed to happen.
