The Met Gala is an annual fundraising event for the benefit of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in New York City. But apart from that, it’s also known as fashion’s biggest night of the year with prominent personalities dressed to the nines. However, a certain celebrity that definitely turned heads this year was Kim Kardashian.
This year’s gala celebrates the new Costume Institute exhibit, In America: A Lexicon of Fashion. It honors the best of American fashion, and the 40-year-old was covered in an all-black ensemble from head to toe. While the internet found her look a bit more complex compared to the style of other celebs, she confidently knows how to strut her haute couture outfit by Balenciaga.
The Kardashian’s look was designed by Balenciaga creative director Demna Gvasalia, which featured black leggings, heels, gloves, a tunic with bell sleeves, a long black train, and an obscuring headpiece. But shortly after she walked the red carpet, numerous memes circulated afterward.
The beauty mogul was compared to Harry Potter’s dementor, an unlocked character, Kendall Jenner’s shadow, and many more. Other users expressed their own reactions by posting surprised and confused looks of her bodyguards and other personalities.
