Kim Kardashian : The Met Gala

19th October 2017.
by Alia Khan.

Everyone knows, the Met Gala is one of the most talked about fashion events in the world – who’s wearing what, when and where. There are heavily asked questions before and after the night of what designer dressed who, who’s wearing which shoes and even who’s saying which make up products. It’s MAJOR. Here at PDHQ, we personally all love checking out the hottest gowns on the carpet and who owned the night. Of course there is competition of who will take center of attention – Bey? RiRi? Or Kimmy K? We think Kimmy K has rocked it through the years and we wanna tell you why.

Kim K first made her debut fashion’s biggest night of the year, the Met Gala, back in 2013 (throwin’ it back or what) when she was pregnant with North West. Her bold floral print Givenchy gown definitely turned heads, and circulated a lot of negative criticism and THOSE memes (you know what we’re talking about…). But we personally think she still rocked her ‘out-there’ dress with confidence. Bearing in mind, she was heavily pregnant AND it was her first time, so we think we should cut her some slack! Her next two looks in 2014 and 20156 equally slayed the red carpet game. The blue stain ensemble was classic and feminine, nothing too crazy but definitely dressed up to the nines by Alber Elbaz. Then, we loved her metallic get up designed by Peter Dundas for Roberto Cavalli. It was embellished everything and seriously sparkly – whats not to love? Moving on from this, her most striking gown was by Balmain. Her BFF Oliver Rousteing pulled out all the stops to make Kim into the Met Ball’s theme “Fashion in an Age of Technology” and he really did! She described herself as a “bling-y, sexy robet!” Enough said.


Last but not least, her most recent Met Gala appearance had everyone in awe because she looked slightly downplayed than before – she ditched the jewellary and overhauled her wardrobe in a simple white dress. We personally think this is our fave look of Kim’s over the years at the Met Gala, because it was simple yet effective, and of course Vivienne Westwood couture. Girl, we see you!!
