This year Met Ball’s theme may have been “punk”, but judging by Kim Kardashian’s powerfully floral outfit, she didn’t get the memo for Monday night’s event.
Kim Kardashian, 32, sported a garish floral gown over her blossoming baby bump, which she bizarrely teamed with matching gloves and heels on the New York red carpet.
She wasn’t exactly shy about flashing the flash as she joined boyfriend Kanye West for one of fashion’s biggest events.
According to People magazine, the custom Givenchy gown by Riccardo Tisci number is made out of floral printed jersey with grommet details that attached the sleeves, turtleneck and gloves.
The dress was rather bizarrely teamed with strappy sandals which gave the ensemble an overly matched look.
Meanwhile, her boyfriend Kanye West- the night’s star performer – also wore Givenchy, but looked much more classy in a simple black suit and white shirt.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are expecting their first baby this summer and it was revealed the reality star decided at the last minute to wear the garish creation, according to Life & Style.
“She had the Givenchy severely altered at the last minute on orders of her new stylist,” a fashion insider told the magazine.
“She’s gained a lot of weight in her arms and her stylist has told her she should not show them off.
“So her dress now has sleeves when it was sleeveless before.”
The source claims that Kanye West was unimpressed that Kim Kardashian decided to mess with the dress.
“Kanye is annoyed, as the dress is by his best friend Riccardo Tisci at Givenchy, and he feels embarrassed that Kim is messing with a beautiful piece of art,” the source said.
Apparently, Kim Kardashian was having a “hard time” trying to fit into her original choice of dress before opting for the Givenchy gown.
“It had to be modified five times for her growing frame,” a friend of Kim Kardashian’s told the magazine last week.
Meanwhile, the reality star posted photographs of herself posing with designers Donatella Versace and Valentino at the event.
It is not known whether Kim Kardashian’s rather outlandish choice was approved by Vogue magazine editor Anna Wintour who is reported to have hosted both Kim and Kanye West at her New York home last night.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were photographed going into Anna Wintour’s home on Sunday for an “intimate dinner”.
The reality star’s newfound connection with Anna Wintour comes after she was reportedly banned from even attending the event the year before by the editor.
According to a report in 2012, Kim Kardashian was banned from showing up to the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala by any mean because of an edict from Anna Wintour.
Apparently the Vogue editor wasn’t a fan of the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star and at the time made sure she didn’t have a way in.
A source told RadarOnline in the 2012 report: “Anna hates Kim. Why would she be invited to the event? It is all the biggest stars in the world and Kim doesn’t fit that bill at all.”
Kim Kardashian’s failure to show up to the 2012 proceedings was even more so unexpected especially as Kanye West was in attendance, looking dashing in a bowtie and suit.
The insider continued: “The Met Gala is $25,000 a ticket, but Kim can’t even buy her way in, Anna Wintour does NOT want her there!
“Anna Wintour would allow Kim Kardashian on the cover of Vogue over her dead body. As long as Anna in charge you will NOT see Kim on Vogue.”
This year Anna Wintour is said to have had a change of heart and allowed Kanye West to bring her as he was performing at the star-studded event.
