Leave it to Cardi B to surprise us all with a truly unpredictable outfit for the 2019 Grammys. The 26-year-old rapper showed up to the red carpet on Feb. 10 with her on-and-off again partner Offset, dressed like a pearl of the sea. Her voluminous award show gown is Mugler Couture from 1995, but in my 23 years of life, I've never seen anything quite like it on a red carpet before.

Cardi's look spread like wildfire across the internet and, naturally, became an instant meme. Twitter users started comparing her outfit choice to Ursula from The Little Mermaid, and the pearls adorning her hair to a Ferrero Rocher tower or an onion volcano.

Is there an award we can give Cardi for making the most waves before the show even started? Not that she needs it — Cardi's already up for five awards. Ahead, see a few hilarious reactions to Cardi's creative look, and then keep reading to catch it from all angles.
