Continue reading to travel down memory lane and explore Kim Kardashian's Met Gala style evolution.
2013: Met Gala debut
Kim made her Met Gala debut in 2013, joining her then-boyfriend, Kanye West. The reality TV star appeared in a floral dress with long sleeves and a high neck. While the dress was a hit with fashion critics, it didn't capture the essence of the theme "Punk: Chaos to Couture." Kim's dress was not very punk, but it perfectly indicated the star's style. Her hair was perfectly slicked back, and she finished her look with strappy heels.
2014: Kim Kardashian rises like a phoenix.
Kim Kardashian nailed her red carpet entrance for the 2014 Met Gala. The theme for that year was "Charles James: Beyond Fashion," so Kim chose a Lanvin gown that perfectly highlighted her curves. The gown was deep blue with a slit on her right leg. The gown had a thigh-high split, showcasing Kim's signature fierce look. The dress was perfectly accessorized with a matching necklace and an elegant wavy hairdo.
2015: Taking it to the next level
In 2015 Kim Kardashian mastered the theme "China: Through the Looking Glass." She wore a magnificent Roberto Cavalli gown with intricate floral embroidery, a thigh-high slit, and a long feathered train. The gown was well-fitted around her waist and loosened at the bottom as it cascaded down her long legs. Kim wore a sleek ponytail, and she was adorned in diamonds. This dress is a perfect example of elegance and sophistication.
2016: The Year of Subtle Fashion
Kim Kardashian chose simplicity at the 2016 Met Gala, themed "Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology." She wore a silver metallic dress designed by Balmain's Olivier Rousteing. The gown featured an armored corset with embellishments that complemented her curvy body. Her hair was styled in wet, slicked-back waves, revealing her dewy makeup look and drop earrings.
2017: The Daring Look.
At the 2017 Met Gala, themed "Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between," Kim Kardashian made daring choices. She went for a strapless dress designed by Vivienne Westwood that showed off her hourglass figure. The highlight of her outfit was the white, bedazzled embellishments around her waist. She added a high ponytail and her waist was cinched, giving her an ultra-chic look.
2018 - The Heavenly Body
Kim Kardashian was back on the Met Gala red carpet in 2018 and looked as stunning as ever. The theme for the night was "Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination," and Kim chose a dress that was fitting for the occasion. The dress was a stunning gold number designed by Donatella Versace. The dress was form-fitting and featured a corset top with a cross design. The skirt, which was covered in gold sequins, had a long train that added to the drama of the look. Kim wore her hair in a sleek, high ponytail and kept her accessories minimal.
2019 - The Wet Look
Kim Kardashian's most recent Met Gala look was a showstopper. The theme for the night was "Camp: Notes on Fashion," and Kim brought the camp. She arrived on the red carpet wearing a wet-look dress designed by Thierry Mugler. The dress was incredibly form-fitting, featuring a corset top and a long, sheer skirt. Kim's hair was wet and slicked back, which added to the dramatic effect of the dress. She completed the look with oversized earrings and clear heels.
