Is She a Dementor? A Ghost? A Metaphor for the Void? Here Are the Best Memes of Kim Kardashian's Met Gala... 'Outfit'
So that’s Kim Kardashian underneath that particularly singular all-black getup.
The “dress,” if you can call it that, is a custom Balenciaga ensemble that may be years ahead of its time. Because God knows, none of us can figure out what she’s trying to accomplish here. She’s likely promoting ex-husband Kanye West’s new album Donda as Yeezy’s been donning full head masks as of late. But the “why” remains to be seen. Is it a symbol for the void? The hollow emptiness of fame? Is she a ghost of his past? Or maybe it’s just a giant black condom.
Regardless of the reason, the Met Gala has always been a platform to exhibit and explore the boundaries of fashion, but even this is pushing it too a little too far. Trust Twitter to bring humor to the WTF situation with the best memes of Kim K’s unique choice.
Twitter, take it away.
Meanwhile, the rest of us spectators.
