It’s not the first time that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have coordinated their style. You might say it’s an art form that the pair has honed in their downtime, often subtly matching their off-duty looks with his-and-hers monochromatic ensembles, but little can compare to the stunning fashion moment they orchestrated on the Met Gala red carpet tonight.
Given their longstanding friendship with Olivier Rousteing—he created the extravagant designs for the Kardashian-Jenner family to wear at the Yeezy show, after all—it only makes sense that the pair show up in Rousteing’s signature embellished aesthetic for Balmain. In Mrs. West’s case, this translated into a modern day take on a suit of armor. Her long-sleeve mirrored form-fitting dress featured an exposed corset and an alluring Angelina Jolie-esque slit.
Not to be outdone Mr. West elevated his casual dad T-shirt-‘n’-jeans uniform, and his crystal-encrusted denim jacket was the ideal foil to his shredded Fear of God jeans—even if the blue contacts had a daring ghoulish vibe. Still, together the Kimye effect was nothing short of dazzling.
Kim responded via Instagram, thanking them for the honor.
