No, Just No: Kim Kardashian Wore Custom Givenchy to the Met Costume Institute Gala

There were some major doozies on the red carpet at last night's Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala, but no one's outfit bombed quite as badly as Kim Kardashian's. Because while other celebs' questionable fashion choices at least adhered to the exhibition's theme (punk), the reality star—who was finally allowed to attend the celeb-studded fashion A-list event this year after she was rumored to have been banned by Vogue editor Anna Wintour last year—wore this monstrosity: a floor-length slit-up-to-there mock turtleneck figure-hugging top-to-toe large-floral-print gown with attached gloves. Oh, and matching sandals.

Either Givenchy artistic director Riccardo Tisci, who created the look specially for Kardashian really hates Kim Kardashian or he had a serious lapse in judgment as to how to dress a heavily-pregnant person who's known for her decidedly mainstream (read: sexy) look.

The gloves, though, seriously:


Ever since Kardashian started dating West, she's made a serious effort to upgrade the labels in her wardrobe—infusing her LA look with dashes of Parisian luxury. Great.

But here's the thing—she's gotten too edgy and it doesn't work for her.

Kardashian has a beautiful face, classical features, glamazon hair, and a super-curvy body. By most mainstream accounts, she's objectively a beautiful woman. But her inherent look and her new fashion choices just don't match up.

Perhaps a tall, willowy-but-pregnant edgy 90s-era runway model could have pulled off this bizarre gloved Givenchy contraption last night. Kardashian could have chosen from a million other evening gowns—even some from Givenchy—that didn't clash with her face and figure.

What do you think? Did Kim Kardashian make the right choice for the biggest fashion event of the year?

  • I loved it! It was so creative and different.
