Kim Kardashian’s Met Gala Look Was All About Foiled Florals

The spring motif just got a little more groundbreaking.

With years of attending the Met Gala under her belt, Kim Kardashian is essentially a pro, and her more laid-back approach to this year’s theme, “Sleeping Beauties: Reawakening Fashion,” was proof.

Though she’s known for pulling out all the stops and stunts (see also the Marilyn Monroe dress and Choupette debacles from last year), she seemingly ditched the theatrics, platinum blonde hair aside, and opted for a more low-key look — hence the cardigan layered on top of her signature hourglass silhouette. And honestly, we’re not mad at this more straightforward approach.

Kim Kardashian’s Cozy Chrome Dress

The SKIMS mogul arrived to the Met wearing a Maison Margiela by John Galliano look loosely inspired by Dior’s Fall/Winter 1997 couture collection. But it’s worth noting that the detailed metallic lace was one of the only things that the runway look and Kardashian’s ensemble had in common. The ’90s version was long-sleeve mini with a high neck, while the reality show star’s modern-day getup featured a strapless sweetheart neck before revealing a super-cinched body of foiled florals that were somewhat see-through.

Similar to the original dress, the floral lace had dainty chain-link details for a little added sparkle.

Her Perfectly Disheveled Bedhead

Even while adhering to the theme, Kardashian put her penchant for perfection on full display with a strategically messy hairdo. Though her bleach blond tresses gave off the illusion of waves in the front, she sported a loose braid in the back.
