Fans compared her to a dementor from the Harry Potter series, the Xenomorph from Ridley Scott’s classic film 'Alien,' and a worthy candidate for Batman's female counterpart
The Metropolitan Museum of Art hosted a score of celebrities, politicians, Tiktokers and Hollywood A-listers on Monday, who stepped out in lavish outfits, laced with social and political commentary, at the Met Gala 2021, in a bid to celebrate the best of American fashion.
The red carpet throbbed with excitement and panache as the stars unapologetically embraced their distinct style.
One of them was the media personality and aspiring lawyer Kim Kardashian who baffled everyone by stepping out in a train-length cape, seamless stilettos and a face covering – a look that the internet was quick to term as the “dementor look.”
Held to raise funds for the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute, the Gala made a stunning return this week after the pandemic had foiled last year’s all fashion plans. It marked the inauguration of the Costume Institute's 2021 annual fashion exhibition, titled "In America: A Lexicon of Fashion.”
Wearing Balenciaga, Kim Kardashian and her estranged husband Kanye West drew the attention of both fashionistas and memers alike by opting out for a thick all-black outfit.
