Kim Kardashian dips into the Mugler archive for the Met Gala
The social-media star teamed up with Mugler, wearing a wet-look dress based on pieces from the designer's archive
The theme for last night’s Met Gala – and the Met’s accompanying exhibition - is Camp: Notes on Fashion. And when one of the world’s most prominent style icons and influencers came to pick an outfit for last night’s event, the choice of designer was pretty obvious.
This isn't the first time Kardashian has stepped out in Mugler, but it is perhaps her most high-profile outing.
The dress, which was dripping with shiny jewels, was a new piece, though one that revisited earlier, archival garments from Mugler’s past. The sparkles certainly brought to mind the beading on Beyoncé’s world tour garments from, 2013–2014 (which were also created by Mugler, drawing on his spring/summer 1996 collection); as well as the shimmering, synthetic fabrics the designer has favoured for decades.
