The ‘Keeping Up With Kardashians’ star Kim Kardashian is known for her bold fashion choices. So it wasn’t really a shock when she showed up to the 2021 Met Gala covering her entire body, including her face, in an all-black ensemble. For the event, which is often dubbed “the fashion Oscars,” Kim wore a full-body get-up featuring a black face covering that she paired with a body-hugging tunic-length T-shirt, catsuit, elbow-length gloves and jersey boots.
Kim also took to her Instagram account to share photos of the bold ensemble by Balenciaga, captioning her post with “Balenciaga Met 2021.”
Kim was accompanied by a mystery man in a masked ensemble, which left fans wondering if the person was her estranged husband Kanye West. However, a source told E! News that the American rapper didn’t attend the Met Ball. Instead, the person standing by the KKW Beauty founder’s side was none other than designer Demna Gvasalia, who is the creative director of Balenciaga.

Last month, Kardashian also donned a similar look for Kanye West’s second Donda listening event at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. Earlier this year, Kim filed for divorce from Kanye West after almost seven years of marriage. According to People magazine, the duo parted ways on an amicable note. The duo started dating in 2012 and had their first child in 2013. They tied the knot on May 24, 2014, in a ceremony at a Renaissance fortress in Florence, Italy.
