Kanye West didn’t have to attend the 2021 Met Gala to make his presence felt.
The rapper’s estranged wife, Kim Kardashian, attended the lavish soiree in a custom Balenciaga look, complete with a head mask that completely obscured her face. She walked the famous red carpet with Balenciaga Creative Director Demna Gvasalia, an intro powered by West.
A source told Page Six that the former ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’ star wanted to make a ‘new subculture and fashion statement’ with her polarizing look.
“There is no logo, no face, but everyone knows it is her,” added our source. “Kanye gave her the courage to stimulate creativity and people’s imagination through art.
“It’s the ultimate confidence.”
Monday’s Met Gala was Gvasalia’s first, as he is very private and rarely appears in public.
“He doesn’t even walk out the door at the end of his shows,” our source added. “So it’s very important that he be here at the Met and walk with Kim.”
The KKW Beauty founder’s outfit also included a tunic T-shirt, a bodysuit, elbow-length gloves, and “Pantasy Leggings” with built-in high heels.
Kardashian, 40, has been wearing similar ensembles lately while supporting West’s release for his latest album ‘Danda’.
