Kim Kardashian’s big Met moment

How’s a girl to finally make that entrance?

Say what you will about Kim Kardashian’s gown-and-glove ensemble at last night’s Met Ball, but the headlines the expectant reality star have garnered today are no joke.

Rumour has it KK has been banned from the Gala’s red carpet for years, but her relationship with baby daddy Kanye West – who performed at last night’s triple-A-list event – sealed the deal for her this time around. And it’s fair to say that her matchy-matchy floral Givenchy look, which comprised printed jersey with grommet details attaching the sleeves, turtleneck and gloves, created the grand entrance of her dreams.


Not that Riccardo Tisci can take all the credit for that.

‘She had the Givenchy severely altered at the last minute on orders of her new stylist,’ an unnamed fashion insider told US mag Life & Style.

‘She's gained a lot of weight in her arms and her stylist has told her she should not show them off. So her dress now has sleeves when it was sleeveless before.’

It was also sans belt, to accommodate that seven-month baby bump.
