The excitement for the Met Gala has been building since 2019, when Anna Wintour announced the theme, “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion”. It was looking like trouble when the Met Gala was postponed earlier this year, due to the pandemic. Fortunately, the Met Gala is back! And everyone on the internet has collectively rolled up their sleeves to provide live commentary on the event.
Kim Kardashian’s all-black outfit
Rihanna’s ‘omelette dress’ from the 2017 Met Gala might have finally met its match with Kim Kardashian’s all-black Balenciaga outfit and face covering by creative director Demna Gvasalia. She has already been compared to a women’s bathroom sign, xenomorph from the Alien franchise, as well as a video game character that has yet to be unlocked.
Kardashian’s recent decisions to adhere to her estranged husband, Kanye West's new aesthetic, especially after the bizarre wedding scene at the rapper's recent album release concert, fuels rumours that the power couple may be putting their billion-dollar divorce aside and reconciling. “What clause in the divorce agreement didn’t help her get out of doing this?” asked Twitter user, Alyssa Vingan.
