Despite it's simplicity, the all-black look had several intricate design features, including the jersey boots. 

The fashion and beauty entrepreneur also sported long gloves and a full-face mask which kept her make-up hidden.

Of course social media had thoughts about the outfit, with some comparing the look to a Dementor from Harry Potter, while others claimed she looked like the Grim Reaper or a wraith from Lord of the Rings.

In 2013 she wore a now-famous floral print Givenchy maternity dress while in 2019 she stunned in a raindrop gown from Thierry Mugler.

Other Twitter users wondered if the look had been inspired by the aesthetic estranged husband Kanye West had used for his latest album Donda - an all black square.

Kardashian had already given a hint at her prospective Met Gala outfit, having arrived in New York over the weekend in an all black Balenciaga bodysuit.

The head-to-toe black leather look included a black belted trench, stiletto boots, gloves and a full face mask covering everything but the star's long dark ponytail dangling from a hole in the back.

The mystery surrounding Kardashian's Met Gala outfit deepened when she arrived accompanied by a man in a similarly masked ensemble, with some fans wondering if her estranged husband had secretly attended the event with the star. 

Kardashian's Met Gala look was a far cry from her sister Kendall Jenner's, who opted for the ultimate naked dress instead.

According to Vogue, Jenner's beautiful custom Givenchy offered a nod to one of Audrey Hepburn's most iconic roles, Eliza Doolittle in My Fair Lady.

Despite the sisters going for completely opposing looks, no doubt Kim Kardashian will court her fair share of headlines. Maybe that was the plan all along. 

It’s the most wonderful time of the year.

Met Gala 2021: Best fashion from the red carpet

CNN 14 September, 2021 - 01:00pm

Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello stepped out tonight for their biggest red carpet of the year: the Met Gala. The couple, who have been dating for two years, made their debut as a pair at the prestigious New York City fashion event. Cabello wore a purple sparkly crop top and skirt. Mendes wore an open leather jacket and black pants alongside her. The two were affectionate in front of the cameras.

“We definitely fight, and we get in like the worst little arguments, but like, I think that we definitely are pretty good at picking up on when it's just ego talking,” Mendes said. “And we usually like, call each other out. It's we have a really honest and open relationship, but, but yeah, no, we definitely fight. I think like, especially like, I think the longer the relationship goes, it's like the easier it seems to be to fight. So, yeah, it's definitely not that holding hands all the time, but we're really good with each other. It never gets bad. It's always like a little fight.”

Sirius XM's Stanley T asked Mendes, “When you find yourself in an argument with her and then you realize in the argument you're wrong. How do you handle that? Do you just come out and say, ‘you know what, I've been thinking about it. I'm sorry’?”

“Yeah,” Mendes replied. “All of it, it takes all my might in the entire world, but I have to admit that I'm wrong, but it takes everything. My face probably looks like tight and red, but I say I'm wrong. Hopefully. I mean, maybe she would say something else. I'm sure. Sometimes I don't say I'm wrong.”
