They're appropriately dressed for hot New York City weather, to be quite honest.

Behold, the Wests have arrived. Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have appropriately dressed for the New York City heat that's currently afflicting guests of the 2016 Video Music Awards red carpet on Sunday night. According to Kim's Twitter account, she took a vote for her outfit and hairstyle from her followers. It was a close call for both, but she ended up landing on a "dressy sexy look" (versus "casual chill") with dark hair — as opposed to blonde, which she rocked at her husband's "Famous" art exhibit opening the night before in Los Angeles.

Kim's vintage John Galliano sheer, black dress features a deep (deep) V-neckline that's slightly off-kilter — like a cooler version of the "cold shoulder" top everyone is wearing this season. It's minimally accessorized with layered gold pendant necklaces — a collaboration between Kanye West and Jacob the Jeweler — and strappy sandal heels.

As for 'Ye, he stuck with his go-to summer look: a head-to-toe white ensemble, which gives off more of a "casual chill" vibe that Kim's followers outvoted. He pretty much dressed himself with his own product, including Yeezy 950 duck boots and a #merch tee exclusive to West's "Famous" video premiere at the Forum in Los Angeles back in June.
