Aili Adalia, a 5-year-old Insta-blogger, recreated Cardi B’s Met Gala 2018 look on her micro-fashion blog and got a shoutout from the rapper herself! The viral post has generated thousands of followers for the Detriot native’s Instagram account.
There’s no doubt that Cardi B was dressed to kill, stealing the show at this year’s Met Gala. However, one little girl who recreated Cardi’s entire look has stolen people’s hearts worldwide.
The mini-blogger from Michigan picked her red carpet favorite from the night and posted a photo of her version of the bejeweled Moschino dress and headdress. She captioned the image, writing, “We all know the #metgala was yesterday evening! And each and every year, @aili_in_town picks her favorite from the red carpet!! Can you guess who her favorite was this year !?…. YOU GUESSED IT!! @iamcardib! She loved her @moschino gown sooo much, of course we had to remake it! SO LET’S RELIVE THE MOMENT!!”
The blogger also posted side by side comparison photos of herself and Cardi B. She recreated the rapper’s entire look, including the jewelry, choker, pose and hairstyle. Cardi B acknowledged the little girl’s post and reposted it on her own Instagram account.
She wrote ‘@aili_in_town soooo cute I want mines already.’
This was in reference to her own baby on the way; the singer is now over seven months pregnant, so she doesn’t have a long wait to go.
Last year, Aili recreated actress Zendaya’s Met Gala look. The 21-year-old wore a gorgeous, colorful Dolce & Gabbana gown, which Aili emulated. Zendaya reposted the photo on her own account, writing, “Please look at this little princess.” The post has received almost 1.7 million likes.
Aili has been receiving praise and attention for her recreations. On Cardi B’s look, users wrote encouraging comments such as ‘too cute’, ‘this is amazing’, and ‘nailed it’. Users also gave the five-year-old’s mom props for making the dress so well.
One user wrote, “mom you should be a fashion designer, you do a great job for your daughter.”
Along with running and managing Aili’s Instagram account, Aili’s mother Kanaya Monet also blogs and vlogs. She has over 6,000 followers on her Instagram account and chronicles her own street fashion looks on social media. The mini fashionista and her mom are definitely must-follow accounts to get the latest low-down on street fashion.
