First to arrive was Kris, whose Tommy Hilfiger trouser suit and tulle maxi-cape with exaggerated shoulders may have been slightly off but that HAIR. She was persuaded last minute by youngest daughter Kylie to opt for a blonde wig just hours before the red carpet, and she gets full marks for spontaneity from us.
You’d be forgiven for thinking the Met Gaga Gala had just one guest this year, but joining Gaga on the biggest red carpet of the year were a whole host of Kardashian-Jenners, who truly went for it in the wardrobe department.
Next in line was Kim Kardashian, whose look was wildly-anticipated after she’d spent the day reminiscing and talking openly about her previous looks on social media.
Admitting that she “went home and cried” after her Met debut in 2013 having been “sure no one wanted [her] there”, Kim went on to question the colour choice of her 2014 Lanvin number and admitted bleaching her brows in 2016 was a “big mistake”, but this year she looked more confident than ever as she arrived on the arm of husband Kanye West.

Opting for Thierry Mugler – who hasn’t designed for the Mugler label in almost two decades but made an exception for this occasion – Kim admitted that she and Mugler had worked together for more than six months to pull everything together.
Inspired by Sophia Loren from 1957’s Boy on a Dolphin, her take on the theme ‘Camp: Notes on Fashion’ saw her mimick the costume’s wet look via tousled, damp hair, wet-look skin and tumbling, beaded droplets falling from her extraordinarily tight button-up dress.

Last but certainly not least were the youngest members of the brood, Kendall and Kylie, who showed no sign of immaturity or insecurity as they opted for two of the punchiest hues of the evening.
Both wearing custom Versace, Kendall opted for a heavily-feathered tangerine orange number with sheer panels and – naturally – Victoria’s Secret-esque wings, while Kylie’s equally feathered purple gown with exaggerated pom-pom sleeves were only upstaged by the matching long lilac wig.
Whatever you think of the family, you can’t deny their commitment to a theme. And when it comes to the Met Gala, that’s what we’re here for.
