BACARDÍ Presents Dress to be Free With Performances by Cardi B and Les Twins
Last night, October 30th, 2017, BACARDÍ toasted Halloween in New York with “Dress To Be Free,” a celebration of the beauty for those who wake up every day and dress to be their truest selves. BACARDÍ and guests joined forces for an evening of dance, liberation, creative expression and of course, cocktails, with featured performances by chart topper Cardi B and dancers Les Twins.
Cardi B, whose Rolling Stone cover debuted earlier in the day, arrived in true Cardi B fashion – lighting up the red carpet donning a “Bruella” de Vil costume, black and white fur coat and matching hairdo, long red gloves, a black embellished bustier, and a long cigarette holder. Sadly her new rock – nor her new fiancée – made an appearance atop her satin gloves, as it is currently getting resized. Other notable guests walking the carpet included DJs Nina Sky, Insecure actor Broderick Hunter, and models Vashtie Kola, Jordun Love, Slick Woods.
Throughout the evening, guests enjoyed the spirit and uniqueness of the Caribbean with the BACARDÍ Zombie, a tiki cocktail made with BACARDÍ Superior and BACARDÍ Gold, as well as exciting surprises from the venue House of Yes.
The evening culminated in an energetic performance from Cardi B, who performed her Billboard number one hit “Bodak Yellow” along with “Lick”, “Motorsports”, “No Limit”, and “Foreva.” Before she left the stage Cardi B encouraged guests to dress however they want and be whoever they want, which is what the #DresstobeFree movement means to her. She reminded the crowd that her name, Cardi B, is a nickname for BACARDÍ and that she was honored to perform at the “Dress to be Free” event.
Guests were also treated to an exclusive dance set from Parisian dancers and choreographers Les Twins, who have graced the stages with Beyoncé and Missy Elliott. Les Twins shocked partygoers as they took to the stage unexpectedly – dancing to get the crowd going and spraying them with water before letting Nina Sky, dressed as twin nuns, reclaim the DJ booth.
