We know (we know!) you have a lot of mixed thoughts about Kim Kardashian and her outfit for the 2021 Met Gala. “Why did she do it? Why is she wearing that? What's going on? Is that Kanye by her side?” Don't feel bad because you are not alone in this world thinking the same. The American socialite shocked us all wearing an all-black Balenciaga look covered from head to toes making fans wonder what's going on in her head? All those celebs and stars around and she decided to go like that? Well, take a deep breath because apparently, there is a reason for that.

The moment she stepped on the now-famous staircase, the moment the memes were released, comparing her to a shadow, or even declaring her like a locked character from a videogame, however, Kim was not fazed by it and kept it like that almost the entire night.

Now, according to some sources, instead of baring it all, Kim Kardashian decided to go with a tunic-length T-shirt, bodysuit, elbow-length gloves, and “Pantaleggings” with built-in high heels because her ex-husband Kanye West inspired her to be more creative. Also, you must be wondering who was the one by her side and if it was possible that Kanye was masked next to her. Sadly (?) it was not him but Demna Gvasalia, the creative director of Balenciaga, the one who designed Kim's outfit.


Even though Kanye is not attending tonight, his presence will be felt on the carpet," a source revealed according to People. "It was Kanye who introduced Kim to Demna and was instrumental in the newly formed relationship between her and Balenciaga." the source added. "This look on Kim is like a new subculture and fashion statement, No logo, no face, but everyone knows it's her. Kanye gave her the courage to push creativity and people's imagination through art. It's the ultimate confidence."

The interesting part of the night was that her make-up artist, Mario Dedivanovic, shared the final result on Kim Kardashian and her make-up and truly she looked fierce and beautiful and she got to unmask herself for Justin Bieber’s afterparty rocking a pair of large, black sunglasses


There are two things that we all must acknowledge. First, she did not show a bit of skin and still, everyone is talking about her, and secondly, Kim Kardashian has gone a long way since her first Met Gala because let's not forget that the first time she attended she was not invitied but just the plus-one of Kanye West. "Kanye was performing so I wasn't actually invited, I was just Kanye's plus one. And that was okay with me because I never really dreamed I would be at the Met Ball," she said in a Vogue video. "I know no one really probably wanted me there at the time."
