For the 2021 MET Gala, Kim Kardashian completely covered her face And everything in a black polarizing Balenciaga look that she paired with a body-hugging T-shirt dress, catsuit and jersey boot heels.
Wearing her hair in ponytails, the reality star attended the red carpet solo. According to TMZ – Kanye West encouraged Kardashian to do the look. Multiple sources say, “he gave Kim the courage to push the envelope with creativity and people’s imagination through art,”.
While Kimye fans were sent into a frenzy after a mystery man in a masked ensemble, who looked seemingly similar to Kanye West, accompanied Kim Kardashian – it was actually Demna Gvasalia, the creative director of Balenciaga – who ultimately joined Kim on the red carpet.
Kanye West is the one who introduced Kim to Demna and was instrumental in the newly formed relationship between her and Balenciaga,” the source explains to E. “This look on Kim is like a new subculture and fashion statement. 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.”
Kim had recently opened up about her pursuit of fame when she was much younger- via E!: “I would stop off at Robertson’s, I would stop off at the Ivy to pick up something to go, even if it was some bread to go,” she joked. “I think I can talk about it because it’s so funny. I think people need to be more honest about those moments in life when you’re just super desperate and want that.”
