Eight months after gracing the steps of the Metropolitan Museum of Artwork in a literal head-to-toe black look designed by Balenciaga’s artistic director Demna Gvasalia, she selected Marilyn Monroe‘s iconic crystal embellished robe for the Might 2 fete. The fact TV star paired the ensemble with blonde hair and diamond earrings. (By the way in which, you’ll be able to see each star on the purple carpet right here.)
In an interview with Vogue on Might 2, Kim defined the inspiration behind her look of selection.
“The thought actually got here to me after the gala in September final 12 months. I assumed to myself, ‘What would I’ve achieved for the American theme if it had not been the Balenciaga look? What’s essentially the most American factor you’ll be able to consider?’ And that is Marilyn Monroe,” Kim mentioned. “For me essentially the most Marilyn Monroe second is when she sang ‘Pleased Birthday,’ to JFK, it was that look.”
Kim’s outfit was extremely anticipated, as she teased in an April 7 interview with Entry Hollywood that becoming into the ensemble would make or break her attendance at this 12 months’s occasion.
“It actually relies upon if I match into my gown, so I hope I am going,” Kim, who bought her tan achieved by Isabel Alysa, mentioned. “I believe will probably be as much as the final minute as a result of it might’t be tailor-made, so I’ve to suit into it like precisely.”
