The theme of this year’s Met Gala was In America: A Lexicon of Fashion, which coincides with the opening of a two-part exhibition at the Met’s Anna Wintour Costume Center.
Earlier the same day, it was revealed that Kanye West has unfollowed her Instagram account. Kanye previously unfollowed all of the Kardashians except Kim following their split earlier this year.

“Even though Kanye is not attending tonight, his presence will be felt on the carpet,” a source told People about Kim’s ex-husband Kanye West.
“It was Kanye who introduced Kim to Demna and was instrumental in the newly formed relationship between her and Balenciaga.”
“This look on Kim is like a new subculture and fashion statement,” the source added. “No logo, no face, but everyone knows it’s her. Kanye gave her the courage to push creativity and people’s imagination through art. It’s the ultimate confidence.”

The Skims founder wore skintight leggings connected to black jersey boots, a black body-hugging T-shirt dress, opera gloves, a face obscuring headpiece, and a long black train.
Wearing a very long ponytail, she was assisted up the stairs by a man dressed in a similar all-black bodysuit and hoodie. The wannabe lawyer was reportedly accompanied by designer Demna Gvasalia, who is the creative director of Balenciaga.
