Dinner and a movie? Please. That’s a date night for us peasants.
But, a date night for Kim Kardashian and Kanye West? How about one of the highest-profile red carpet events of the year?
The couple recently stated they were really just excited to attend the 2016 Met Gala because it meant date night for the two of them.
Oh, and the two were clad in Balmain. Yep. Totally normal date night couple outfits.

The celebrity couple (and pretty much the rest of the Kardashian-Jenner-West squad) pledged their allegiance to designer friend Olivier Rousteing, who is the head designer of Balmain, by entrusting him with their 2016 Met Gala look.

This year’s Met Gala was themed “Manus x Machina: Fashion in the Age of Technology,” which seemed to basically mean a lot of silver.

Kim wore a long-sleeved floor-length bedazzled dress. It featured a daring thigh-high slit and a bustier-like design.

Kanye, on the other hand, wore a matching bedazzled Balmain jacket over his street clothes.

While Kanye downplayed his look with jeans and suede boots, Kim went all out with a custom-made silver pair of Tom Ford sandals and a blingy ear cuff.

Ensembles aside, Kanye was more talkative than usual. The stoic rapper cracked a smile while joking that reindeer “tastes like Christmas.”
He recently ate reindeer meat on a trip to Iceland with his wife. They visited the island nation to film a new music video for one of the tracks on Kanye’s seventh studio album, The Life of Pablo.

Kim told the cameras that North came to New York with the family and said that she needed the Balmain dress once Kim was done with it.
The ShoeDazzle founder told North that she could probably wear it to prom when she grows up.
