It's no surprise that Kanye West and Kim Kardashian at the 2016 Met Gala made for an instantaneously viral fashion moment. After all, each year that they attend, they manage to start all kinds of conversations with their looks. There was the infamous floral gown that Kardashian West wore to the 2013 Met Gala, otherwise known as the "couch dress" that launched thousands of memes (for the record, Kim K looked ravishing that night). Then there's Kanye, who normally arrives to the affair in black — a pretty safe move, respectively speaking. Despite that, he manages to look perfectly tailored and polished, each and every year.
This year, to fit the "Manus x Machina: Fashion In An Age Of Technology" theme, West took it up a notch: He swapped out a formal tux for an encrusted Balmain jacket and distressed jeans. He even switched out his eyes, wearing icy blue contacts for the night. Meanwhile, Kim K continued her lega-slay by wearing an insanely form-fitting Balmain gown that made her look like an empress who decided to come back from the future, simply to let us all know that her fierceness will span across centuries.
And while they look absolutely amazing individually, there's something about Kimye together that really takes me over the edge. That's right: Together, the most talked-about couple in America looks like a pair of blingy, sexy robots. Please observe.
Is Blingy Sexy Robot Couple Of The Year an award? If it doesn't exist, it definitely should.
