Kim Kardashian has once again divided opinion with the latest in a long line of puzzling outfits.
Always known to be a showstopper at the Met Gala red carpet, the billionaire businesswoman arrived in an all-black Balenciaga outfit that covered her entire body, including her face.
The dress included a lengthy cape-train that draped down on the iconic steps at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.
The theme for the 2021 Met Gala, which is the biggest fashion event on the calendar, is ‘In America: A Lexicon Of Fashion’.
It was meant to be a platform for people to celebrate what America means to them and, more importantly, how that translates to fashion.
While some people are calling Kim’s outfit legendary, others are simply confused about how it relates to the theme.
It didn’t take long before the memes started to roll in on social media.
Vogue reports the Balenciaga outfit was designed by Kim’s soon-to-be ex-husband Kanye West.
The outlet said: “During their romantic relationship, West wasn’t shy about sharing his opinions on Kardashian’s wardrobe-an entire episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashian‘s is dedicated to the wardrobe makeover he and his stylist gave her.
“Now that they’re friendly exes, West still gives his input. The Met Gala look he created for her reflects his love of minimalism, [Balenciaga’s Demna] Gvasalia’s, and Kardashian’s innate glamour.
“The stark black gown with matching mask and train was unlike anything Kardashian-or anyone else-has worn to the Met before.”
But you wouldn’t be alone in thinking you have seen Kim in an outfit very similar to this.
When the 40-year-old touched down in New York City at the start of the week, she was spotted wearing a leather Balenciaga outfit that was head-to-toe black and, again, covered her face.
Then last month, Kim shared pictures of herself in a black Balenciaga jumpsuit with her kids, which was similar to the one she was pictured in at Kanye West’s Donda listening parties.
Looks like there is a running theme going on in Kim’s world.
