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.

I see she still loks like a hooker and he looks like an idiot in badly fitted chlothes. How did 2 cretins like kim and ugh kayne ever get and invite. They are both nothings and good for nothings.

Kim still looks FAT and UGLY, and what is Kanye wearing, a Mariachi suit? Both look UGLY and out of place as usual

I think she looks quite pretty here. I really like the dress.

What’s this, the 5th article on them today? Give it a damn rest!

they both look ugly and Kim is FAT, that dress is ugly and what is Kanye wearing a Mariachi outfit or a waiter’s outfit, that is so ill fitting.

Yeah, not really. on

I like the color, that is flattering for Kim. The bust line is bizarre. The slit and shoe combo make her legs look fat in each shot where she is sticking out her leg in my opinion.. Get your hands out of the pockets, please, so we can see how this dress is supposed to hang. The cut of this dress in the front … it’s just… What is happening??? seems weird. Overall, I don’t think this works well. She is not pregnancy and covered head to toe in a large print – so that is a plus. An improvement, as is Kanye’s “I’m in a tuxedo, but let me cut it like my leather jogging pant! Yeah!” but still leave so much to be desired.

her thighs look huge and her shoes look cheap

E Online posted this picture of Kim just as she was getting in the car to go to the Met Gala. In the pic, Kim is wearing the same gown but she is wearing a different belt, shoes, and has bracelets on. (

I’m guessing she changed her look in the car.

How come in the instagram picture, she is wearing a belt and 2 bracelets, but on the red carpet her look is changed completely?
