Cardi B paid tribute to French fashion icon Thierry Mugler, who passed away on Monday at the age of 73.

The 29-year-old rapper heaped praise on the famed designer in an Instagram post that she shared on Tuesday.

'She continued, Over the years me, him and Kollin created even more fashion moments but nothing tops being able to finally meet him in person last year in Paris at his museum exhibit. 

'It's so crazy because I was second-guessing if I should go the whole time leading up to that trip. I had just given birth to my son like three weeks prior and wasn't feeling 100% like myself but something in my spirit kept saying 'GO.' 

Maybe God knew that if I didn't go then I may have never had the opportunity to thank him for everything he did and the doors he opened for me.

The couture piece that the Bojack Yellow hitmaker referenced was vintage 1995 Thierry couture.

In one of her most unforgettable red carpet moments, Cardi stunned in the pink duchess satin and black velvet 'Venus' sheath dress over a nude semi-sheer embellished bodysuit. 

In 2019, Cardi's longtime stylist Kollin Carter told WWD that it took him months get the piece as the fashion house had only ever opened its archives once for a celebrity when Mugler served as the creative director for Beyonce's 2009 I Am...World tour.

Cardi's red carpet ensemble was one of the three looks that she wore from Mugler's archives at the 2019 Grammys.

When Cardi took the stage to accept her Grammy for Best Rap Album, she sported a fringed white crepe shawl dress with matching fringe gloves from Mugler's 1997 'Les Insectes' couture show. 

And at the 2020 Grammys, Cardi was decked out in a sheer nude Mugler dress with crystal-embellished
