Look, a girl’s gotta have her options. My car was pretty much my mobile closet–I kept AT LEAST six pairs of shoes in the trunk, and who knows how many different tops and bottoms–because options! (And I also have a very irrational fear of showing up somewhere wearing the same thing as someone else.) Judge me as you may, but at least Kim Kardashian gets it.
We were all glued to our computer screens to watch fashion’s finest and most stylish celebrities arrive to the Met Gala in New York City on Monday evening to rant and rave over their getups (while totally wishing we were there ourselves). Attendees typically spend a lot of time prepping for months in advance, but Kim kept us on our toes with multiple last-minute changes.
The paps first snapped the bride-to-be in her satin Lanvin dress accessorized with simple strap sandals and an edgy leather belt and cuffs, but when she and Kanye West made their way to the red carpet, she pulled a switcheroo.
She explained it all on her blog, saying:
Last night was an amazing time at the Met Gala. I was in love with my Lanvin strapless dress. Alber Elbaz helped Kanye and I get ready for the evening, which was a perfect fit because he also dressed us for the cover of Vogue. It was such a tough decision on how to accessorize. I left the store with a chunky belt and leather cuffs. We were going back and forth for hours if the chunky belt was right. In the car on our way there we got a glimpse of the carpet, and I decided the accessories were a bit too “rock n’ roll” and I wanted to go for something more simple and elegant. I switched to a clean black satin belt and strappy heels at the last minute because to me it felt more classic and fit the Forties theme better. Kanye, my stylist and glam team also liked it better too. Overall I thought it was the right decision and I loved the way everything came together. Xo
Me too, Kim. Me too.
