Kim K. is iconic

Grace Swift, Staff Writer

Whether you like to admit it or not Kim Kardashian has been one of the biggest celebrities for the past 10 years. She has over 256 million followers on Instagram and owns 3 companies that have all been estimated to be worth over 1 billion dollars. Kim Kardashian has also been seen as a fashion icon with many of her classic looks.

Kim Kardashian definitely turned heads this year at Met Gala with one of her most wild outfits she has worn yet. Her outfit consists of a head to toe Balenciaga, blackout outfit; the outfit covers every part of her body including her face.

There have been many different reactions to this outfit. Many believe that this outfit is dumb and does not go with the Met Gala theme, which was “ In America: A Lexicon of Fashsion”. 

What people fail to see of this outfit is how iconic it truly is. The whole idea behind Kim Kardashian’s outfit is that she is so famous and such an important figure in American culture that you don’t even need to see her face to know it is her. You are able to tell by the shape of her body and her hair exactly who she is. To even further push the message Kim Kardashian was trying to prove is that the designer of the Balenciaga outfit, Demna Gvasalia, was also in a blackout outfit but the outfit fit the silhouette as something that Kanye West, Kim Kardashian’s ex-husband and famous music artist, would wear which caused the public to believe that Kim and Kanye were walking the carpet together but they truly were not.

So when you look back at Kim Kardashian’s Met Gala outfit, try to look at the blank statement she is making. She obviously is dressed in all black head to toe but think about the message she is trying to prove by not showing her face but still being the center of attention because of her level of fame she has in the United States.
