At the 2021 Met Gala event in New York City, earlier this month, celebrities were out in full force, showing off their various outfits. The theme for 2021 was American fashion, and critics wondered if some of the big names in attendance, were truly following the theme.
One of the most notable ones was the outfit owned by Kim Kardashian, which was designed by Balenciaga, was all black, and completely masked her face, to where she was completely unnoticeable. Nonetheless, though, it was regarded by many as one of the best outfits of the evening.

Kim K’s Met Gala Outfit Will Be A Halloween Choice For Fans.
Fashion retailer, Yandy, frequently turns memorable celebrity looks into Halloween outfits, and that is now being the case, for Kardashian’s Balenciaga Met Gala look.
Yandy is recreating this outfit and is being sold as a Halloween costume. This will be retailed at $100 for customers, who want to look like Kardashian, next month. The costume is being called the “Mystery Guest Gala Costume.” Accessories included are a “breathable black facial hood,” strapless tube dress, a long cape, opaque tights, and long gloves. Sizes come in between small-XL.
“Glimmering gowns had their fashion moment, and we’re here for it, but look who paved the way for statement-making avant-garde!” said the outfit’s description, on Yandy.com.
“Heart eyes for dress code perfection with all black everything from this concealed, Calabasas queen. Dark, dramatic, and ever so obscure, flaunt your couture-kissed curves like an A-list celeb in this exclusive Mystery Gala Guest costume.”
Kim Admitted That Wearing This Outfit Was Difficult To See Through
Kardashian definitely stood out that night, at the Met Gala, and many wondered if she actually enjoyed this outfit, and being completely unrecognizable.
She even noted that Kendall Jenner was calling her name, but she couldn’t see who it was. Luckily for Kardashian though, she recognized Jenner’s outline, of the “sparkly dress,” that she was wearing.
Kanye West Appears To Love These Mysterious Looks On Kim
While Kanye West and Kardashian are still going through their divorce, they still have a solid relationship. According to People, Kardashian was joined by Balenciaga’s Creative Director Demna Gvasalia, at the Met Gala, and West is who introduced them to each other.
“It was Kanye who introduced Kim to Demna and was instrumental in the newly formed relationship between her and Balenciaga,” said the source close the outlet.
This look on Kim is like a new subculture and fashion statement. “No logo, no face, but everyone knows it’s her. Kanye gave her the courage to push creativity and people’s imagination through art. It’s the ultimate confidence.”
It definitely appears that this Balenciaga outfit is a look that Kardashian could be embracing consistently, in the near future.
West has been sporting this same masked look as well, as evident in his “Donda” album listening events, that occurred in Chicago and Atlanta. At the Chicago event, Kardashian also sported a white Balenciaga dress, while masked. This even caused speculation as to if West and Kardashian would reconcile.
