Kylie Jenner once again, fans raved about her incredible Met Gala look. Following her highly controversial 2022 “wedding dress,” she opted for a decidedly more glamorous look for the 2023 event.
The cosmetic magnate dazzled with a tight asymmetrical haider ackerman dressed in a corresponding coat. The messy hairstyle of his was the perfect look to go with the outfit.
Kylie, 25, gave fans a hint that she would be wearing Jean Paul Gaultier when she shared an Instagram post earlier on Monday, May 1, of a giant billboard draped against the side of a building displaying her modeling for the designer’s latest campaign. She was seen wearing a pale pink dress with Gaultier’s iconic cone bra, first made famous by Virgin in 1990.
The cosmetics mogul has been a style star at many of the previous Met Galas she’s attended, but ended up on a series of worst-dressed lists in 2022 for her Off-White ensemble of a white bustier with a crop top. mesh over it, a voluminous white ruffled skirt and a backwards baseball cap with a veil in front. The “bridal” look was criticized by many fans, especially when all of her sisters were present and they looked so elegant.
While the dress was confusing to many fans, it was a tribute to the late Off-White founder and creative director, Virgil Abloh. He died in November 2021 after a two-year private battle with cancer.

“Celebrating V tonight and his incredible legacy really means a lot to me. I am honored to wear this dress and honor my beautiful and talented friend. We feel you tonight Virgilio and we love you forever. And thanks to the entire @off____white team!!” added the Kylie Skin founder.
