Kim Kardashian's body covered in black at Met Gala

Kim Kardashian, wearing Balenciaga, turned heads by dressing entirely in black, with even her face covered in thick black fabric. Her companion, a man wearing a blackout hoodie, was initially thought to be her estranged husband Kanye West, but Vogue.com said later it was Balenciaga designer Demna Gvasalia.

The invitation-only Met Gala is a fundraising benefit for New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art and also marks the opening of the Costume Institute's annual fashion exhibition which this year is titled "In America: A Lexicon of Fashion."

Chaired by four of the biggest Gen Z stars - actor Timothee Chalamet, singer Billie Eilish, poet Amanda Gorman and tennis champion Naomi Osaka - the so-called Oscars of the East Coast annual fundraiser was intended to highlight young designers and celebrities.
