One of the biggest events on the international fashion calendar, the Met Gala, is still the most talked-about event after it took place at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, on September 13.
Stars walked the carpet in styles that interpreted this year’s theme, “American Independence”.
Reality TV star and businesswoman Kim Kardashian wore black from head to toe, literally. She donned a black Balenciaga ensemble which featured a long-sleeve turtleneck bodysuit worn under an oversized T-shirt dress with a long train. She rounded off the look with boots, gloves and a mask over her face and head.
As you know, South Africans have a unique sense of humour, and they wouldn’t let the Kardashian enjoy her moment without making fun of her outfit. In a picture that has been circulating on social media, a young man was wearing a black mask that covered his whole face, a turtleneck, pantyhose and a skirt with a long train. He says the outfit was inspired by Kim Kardashian.
“Inspired by Kim Kardashian. She is KimYe I'm KimYebathong🖤 #Kimchallenge,” he said in the photo caption.
In another episode, a woman recreated Kardashian’s NYFW outfit using rubbish bags. Instead of the black leather that Kardashian wore, the mysterious woman wore black plastic bags and carried a pot instead of a handbag.
