Remember When… Cardi B Gave a Lesson in WAP (and Wearing a Bandana)

Text   Dino Bonacic

It’s time to revisit some of the truly iconic moments featuring our friends, family and favourite brands. First up, it’s a cultural reset courtesy of Cardi B and that Natasha Zinko x DUO Ltd dress.

In the seven years it’s been running, Agency ELEVEN and its team have had their fingers in some truly memorable fashion moments that will forever be part of the world’s collective consciousness of pop culture. That’s why we decided to start this new feature series that will throw it back and celebrate these significant points after which nothing was ever the same. So, do you remember when Cardi B gave a true lesson in wet a** pu**y aka WAP while dressed in a multicoloured Natasha Zinko bandana dress?

You don’t have to have great memory as it literally just went down just a month ago, but we want to take this opportunity to hail the true queen of social media (sorry, Kim K) who has almost single-handedly pushed our society into a more sex-positive place. In case her WAP duet with Megan Thee Stallion didn’t give you all the info you needed, this public service announcement surely did. When’s the last time you heard ‘pH balance’ used in a sentence that wasn’t a shampoo commercial? If only every biology teacher and/or doctor looked as snatched as Cardi does – we’d surely be living in a healthier place. Coordinating her Nastasha Zinko x Duo Ltd bandana lewk from the brand’s SS20 collection with a customised Hermès Birkin and a heavy braid, Cardi B’s stylist Kollin Carter made sure we not only listen to the rapper’s new single but also declare her the best-dressed philosopher since Aristotle. Okuuuur?
