Kim Kardashian crowned her undercover outfit streak with a dramatic look at the Met Gala 2021.
The media personality came to the “Oscars of Fashion” in Demna Gvasalia’s all-black Balenciaga outfit. The ensemble consisted of a black form-fitting mini dress with 3/4 sleeves. The number’s skirt featured a long train that was parted down the middle and formed a sharp V-shape as Kardashian walked up the Met Stairs.
However, the boldest element of her appearance seemed to be a full-length stretchy bodysuit covering Kardashian’s hands, arms, and face – which almost made them unrecognizable. Her outfit was complete with a sleek high ponytail that almost touched the floor. Gvasalia accompanied Kardashian in a similar all-black Balenciaga ensemble, consisting of a fully covered face mask, hoodie, wide-legged pants and slippers.
When it came to shoes, the former “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” star pulled a pair of sharp ones Boots on, also from Balenciaga. The knife style that Gvasalia has made popular since his appointment in the fashion house was characterized by long pointy toes and stilettos with an overall height of at least 10 cm. The boots appeared to be connected to the obvious body, creating a seamless effect that was completely solid color.
Kardashian’s Met Gala look is the upscale version of the style she’s seen in the past few weeks. Kardashian was first spotted at ex-husband Kanye West’s “Donda” listening event in August, wearing a fitted top, pants and a full-faced Balenciaga mask with a braided ponytail. When she arrived in New York yesterday, she also wore a head-to-toe leather outfit that consisted of a zip-up top and a trench coat with a zip-up face mask – complete with a high ponytail. Both ensembles were made up of Gvasalia’s Balenciaga or Vetements pieces and were outfitted with over-the-knee Balenciaga boots.
Every year in May, the Met Gala is held as a fundraising event for the museum’s costume institute’s spring exhibition, the 1946 opened. This year, the Met Gala will take place in September after the 2020 event has been canceled. This year’s exhibition is divided into two parts. The first section, entitled “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion,” opens on September 18th. With a focus on the “modern vocabulary of American fashion”, it will honor the 75th anniversary of the Costume Institute.
A second Met Gala will take place on May 2, 2022 to celebrate the second part of the exhibition, the opens on May 5th. The second part of the exhibition is a collaboration with the Costume Institute and the American Wing, which will examine the evolution of American fashion through a more detailed historical lens.
