On the red carpet, Kim Kardashian accompanied Kanye West. The tight dress by Riccardo Tisci of Givenchy emphasized her pregnancy belly. The creation was compared to a sofa upholstery. The star took the criticism badly – she cried all the way back home.
– I was the plus one of Kanye who was performing at the party. I didn’t get my own invitation. Nobody wanted to see me there then – recalled the Met Gala on May 6, 2013, Kim Kardashian in the film “Life in Looks” made a few years later for “Vogue”. Although she was not convinced that a tight outfit would work on the red carpet with the theme of “Punk: Chaos to Couture”, Kardashian succumbed to the persuasion of her friend Riccard Tisci, who then designed for the Paris fashion house Givenchy (today he is head of Burberry). – I was big, swollen, and heavily pregnant. I didn’t feel very good about myself – she said. As soon as she was photographed wearing a floral-patterned dress, memes were created comparing the dress to the upholstery of the couch (a similar sensation was probably caused by Rihanna’s pizza dress from 2015). – Robin Williams tweeted that I looked like Mrs. Doubtfire Kim complained. “I wore it better,” wrote the actor when he was pictured at the gala. Only the Olsen twins, who liked the Kardashian outfit, comforted her. – They’re true style icons, so I guess they know what they’re saying – stated the reality star. Two years later, when she was pregnant with Saint, she was already joking about the slip-up. She put on Tisci’s dress for Halloween. – I love her, she’s great – she said.
All Kim creations from Met Gala
In the following years, Kim, who became more popular than Kanye, had already received her own invitation to the gala. With her creations, she sparked a discussion, but she was no longer exposed to a wave of criticism. In 2014, she chose safe satin from Lanvin, in 2015 – inspired by Feather Cherries naked dress from Robert Cavalli, which might as well be a wedding creation. In 2016, it resembled a silver disco ball from Olivier Rousteing from Balmain, in 2017 she preferred construction white to Vivienne Westwood. Then, in 2018, it looked like an Oscar statuette in a glossy Versace tube, and in 2019, Thierry Mugler’s gown stuck to it like a second skin. Pattern? Sophia Loren’s wet dress from the 1957 movie The Boy on the Dolphin. This one was so tight that Kim couldn’t even sit in it.
Kim and Kanye: Crisis and Divorce
Everyone is now eagerly awaiting her performance at this year’s gala, especially as the media is speculating about her divorce from Kany. A few weeks ago, the matter seemed a foregone conclusion – the marriage was over. After the premiere of West’s new album, “Donda,” where Kim appeared in a wedding dress, there were rumors that they had made up. In any case, he would definitely like to get her back. She vigorously denies this, continuing her meetings with celebrity attorney Laura Wasser. Problems in the West’s marriage had arisen five years ago, when he had a nervous breakdown. He survived subsequent crises with his wife by his side. After adding two more children to the family – Chicago and Psalm – Kim decided to save her husband. During the pandemic, they had the opportunity to talk about priorities. It turned out that their plans for the future differ. The measure changed when Kanye announced his candidacy for the presidency of the United States. Friends of the couple then claimed that he had lost touch with reality.
Kim and Kanye: A Story of Love and Style
North West, the couple’s firstborn daughter, was born five weeks after the fateful Met Gala on June 15, 2013. Kim and Kanye had been dating since 2012, they had been friends much earlier. They met in the early 2000s when he was recording a song with her friend Brandy. – He thought my last name was Kardajan. He had no idea who I was Kim laughed in conversation with Ryan Seacrest. In the 2012 song “Theraflu” (“Cold”), Kanye confessed that he loved Kim while she was still dating and marrying other men. They got engaged shortly after North’s birth in the fall of 2013. He asked her to marry him in the stadium. It was then that Kardashianki’s dream came true – she appeared with her fiancé on the cover of “Vogue” as half of the “most commented couple in the world”. In the session, the couple posed with nine-month-old North. On May 24, 2014, they married in Florence, where she performed in Givenchy lace. She forgave Tisci for the mishap with the Met Gala, or maybe appreciated that thanks to the controversial creation, she appeared on the red carpet. Since then, the Kardashian has been regarded as often as the best-dressed and the worst-dressed celebrities. The emotions that her style evoked translated into financial success. Thanks to KKW Beauty and SKIMS, Kim made her first billion. Kanye also joined the elite club of billionaires. Time will tell how they will share their property.
