It’s safe to say that 2018 has so far been the year of Cardi B, which means she had big expectations to fill for her first-ever Met Gala in her hometown of New York City Monday night. The annual event, co-hosted by Vogue and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, invites pop culture’s biggest celebrities to dress up in a museum-oriented theme and attend a huge gala party in conjunction with an exhibit. Over the years, it’s come to be one of Hollywood’s biggest (and most daring) fashion nights.

Luckily, the rapper knocked it out of the park. Cardi currently has nine simultaneous songs on the Billboard’s Hot 100 chart, a baby on the way, and “came through drippin” in head-to-toe Moschino with designer Jeremy Scott on her arm.

Fans on Twitter were impressed by her interpretation of the night’s “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination” theme, to say the least:

She even managed to squeeze in a photo-op squashing beef rumors between her and fellow New Yorker Nicki Minaj:

Queen Cardi reigns on.
