Met Gala 2014: Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Have an Old Hollywood-Themed Date Night

05/05/2014 at 09:28 PM ET

After the all the buzz her floral Givenchy gown got last year (you remember — the one with the built in gloves), Kim Kardashian surprised us with an understated dose of glamour for this year’s Met Gala.

Kardashian selected a blue strapless Lanvin gown with a black waistband and thigh-high slit (we knew there would be some skin-baring somewhere!), teamed with black strappy heels, side-swept waves and Lorraine Schwartz danglers. And the style editors here would like to give her fiancé Kanye West props for actually paying homage to Charles James in a black tux with coattails.

Kardashian also wore a satin Lanvin design for her Vogue cover, which has us wondering if the star (who usually turns to Riccardo Tisci for Givenchy for her high-fashion moments) is collaborating with Lanvin designer Alber Elbaz for her wedding dress.

Tell us: What do you think of Kim and Kanye’s red carpet couple moment? Is this one of her best red carpet looks?

Better than last year, but that would not be too difficult. What on earth is he wearing though..he has a design going down the side of his trousers.

Kim needs a stylist…..really bad. This dress does not look nice on her. And her escort should have his slacks tailored.

Anything has got to be better than last year

Kim actually looks quite pretty here. She always looks much nicer when her look is a bit understated versus so over the top like she normally does. It is a huge step up from last years gown, although granted last year she was pregnant. Nice choice.

I don’t like the dress, it has a really weird shape/fit, plus Kim should try to be a mom every once in a while!
