As rumored, last night’s surprise Met gala performer was none other than Kanye West, who arrived to the star-studded event on the arm of one of the evening’s most controversial and buzzed-about guests: Kim Kardashian, who may or may not have been banned from the event last year.
If that was indeed the case (which we kinda doubt), then what a difference a year makes. This time, Kardashian and West reportedly had dinner at Anna Wintour’s house the evening prior and the very pregnant reality TV star showed up in custom floral Givenchy designed by the event’s co-chair, Riccardo Tisci. And if that weirdly full-coverage (it covered her hands?) dress wasn’t enough to turn heads, Kardashian was later put under the proverbial spotlight as West serenaded her while wearing a studded Givenchy outfit that included one of the leather skirts we once worried he had forsaken (and banned photos of).
Judging by a couple of Vines from last night, which you can watch below, the song involved a lot of West telling Kardashian, “You’re so awesooooome.” Pretty sweet. Oh, and, she feels the same way.
Were Kanye West and Kim Kardashian the prom king and queen of this year’s Met Ball? Was the event just an opportunity for them to publicly declare their love (of each other and of man skirts) to all the haters? Kinda sounds like it. #punk
