With dresses from previous years, Kim Kardashian set a fairly high bar for herself at the MET Gala. This year, it surprised everyone who expected another rich, crystal-lined or intricately patterned outfit. She opted for a minimalist, built-up, but also shocking look from Balenciaga. Her husband Kanye West, who collaborated with the creative director of the Balenciaga brand Demna Gvasalia, on the performances promoting the new album “Donda”, also had his fingers in this project.
Full-face masks styled as balaclavas were an integral part of Kanye West’s styling from all the promotional events he organized to promote the album “Donda”. He created this image in collaboration with Balenciaga’s creative director Demna Gvasalia. During the last presentation of the album, Kim Kardashian decided to follow a similar aesthetic. Many interpreted this gesture as a subtle signal that the spouses had returned to each other after several months of separation. So, can the fact that it was West who designed her for this year’s MET Gala mean the final confirmation of this reconciliation?
The peculiar stylization in which Kim appeared on the MET stairs was re-created by Kanye together with Demna Gvasalia. The look consisted of elastic boots with a sharp toe, characteristic of Georgian work, a thick T-shirt with a double train and a tight-fitting, underneath jumpsuit, the part of which covered the face was styled as a balaclava.
