The garment in question featured a long tail and midi sleeves. Without much detail, the look was developed by Demna Gvasalia, Creative Director of Balenciaga, according to the website “TMZ”.
The look also included a t-shirt over the body, complemented with Pantaleggings boots, gloves and a mask.
On Twitter, users made memes comparing Kim Kardashian to the dementors from the movie “Harry Potter” among other jokes.
Met Gala 2021
This year’s Met Gala theme is: “In America: A Fashion Lexicon” to celebrate American fashion. Political and social movements were some of the reasons why Andrew Bolton, responsible for the curatorship, and collaborator Wendy Yu, chose to address this issue, in order to portray the changes caused in the identity of local costumes.
“I’m really impressed with American designers’ responses to the social and political climate, particularly around issues of bodily inclusion and gender fluidity, and I’m just finding the works very, very reflective,” Andrew Bolton told Vogue.
“I truly believe that American fashion is undergoing a renaissance. I think young designers, in particular, are at the forefront of discussions about diversity and inclusion, as well as sustainability and transparency, far more than their European counterparts, perhaps with exception of English designers”.
The 2021 event is hosted by actor Timothée Chalamet, singer Billie Eilish, tennis player Naomi Osaka, and poet Amanda Gorman.
