Werk, girl!

A 5-year-old Detroiter named Aili Adalia has gone viral after recreating rapper Cardi B's look from this year's big star-studded Met Gala, which featured a (somewhat baffling yet visually interesting) Catholic church theme.

Aili nailed Cardi's look and a photo of it quickly went viral, earning nearly 25,000 likes on Instagram by Friday afternoon. Cardi B shared a side-by-side photo on her account, where it now has nearly 2 and a half million likes.
