Met Gala 2022: Here comes the bridezilla! Kylie Jenner shocks in bizarre WEDDING DRESS

Kylie Jenner left many scratching their heads as she stepped out of her hotel with sister Khloe Kardashian in New York City en route to the star-studded Met Gala on Monday night.

The 24-year-old makeup mogul – who has been highly praised for her Met Gala fashion in the past – emerged in a bizarre white ruffled wedding dress.

Kylie’s lengthy raven hair flowed out from under a white veiled baseball cap, which she chose to wear backwards for a sportier look.

The cap, which slightly obscured Kylie’s famous face, was adorned with floral appliques.

The mother-of-one’s odd dress had a full, floor- length skirt and a T-shirt inspired mesh top.

Layered under the mesh was a ruched white spaghetti strap bodice with a sweetheart neckline.

‘OFF’ was printed across the front, seemingly suggesting the stunner’s dress was designed by the late Virgil Abloh’s Off-White label.

The train of Kylie’s dress was so long that a male assistant had to carry it for the star as she made the walk from the hotel to a nearby chauffeured SUV. 

The Kylie Cosmetics founder also lifted her gown off the ground herself during the short trek.

A pair of transparent heels poked out from under Kylie’s gown and she accessorized with a pair jeweled dangly earrings that rested on the tops of her shoulders.

Khloe slipped her gym-honed physique into a glitzy gold beaded dress with a semi-sheer skirt that gave a glimpse at her lean legs.

Giving the ensemble an edgier vibe, she layered up the look with a gloved black cloak that rested in the crook of her arms. 

The reality TV sensation, 37, opted for a pair of nude strappy heels and concealed her gaze with a pair of reflective gold cateye shades.

Khloe’s bleach blonde tresses were parted to one side and styled in sleek strands that cascaded down her back.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Benefit, also known as the Met Gala, is considered by many as the ‘Super Bowl of celebrity red carpets.’

Fashion’s biggest night is traditionally held the first Monday in May to raise money for the Costume Institute in New York City, with last year’s event moved to September due to the pandemic. 

This year’s dress code is ‘gilded glamour’ to match the theme of ‘In America: An Anthology of Fashion,’ a continuation of last year’s ‘In America: A Lexicon of Fashion.’

Tickets for the glitzy event can reportedly cost up to $35,000 apiece, while prices for a table range from $200,000 to $300,000, with last year’s bash raking in a  whopping $16.4 million for the Met’s Costume Institute.

Regina King, power couple Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds, and Lin-Manuel Miranda are hosting this time, taking over from Timothée Chalamet, Billie Eilish, Amanda Gorman and Naomi Osaka.

This will be Miranda’s first time as a Met Gala co-chair (and guest) but he was originally intended to co-host the 2020 edition before the pandemic forced its cancellation. 

Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour is once again supervising the benefit as chairwoman, a position she’s held since 1995. Her fellow honorary co-chairs are designer Tom Ford and Instagram head Adam Mosseri. 

As usual, the sartorial theme comes from the exhibit the gala launches: ‘In America: An Anthology of Fashion,’ which is the second of star curator Andrew Bolton’s two-part show exploring the roots of American style.

This exhibit will showcase some lesser-known designers, and also some top film directors, including Sofia Coppola, Martin Scorsese, host King, and last year’s Oscar winner Chloé Zhao.

Bolton said eight directors will create what he called ‘cinematic vignettes’ in the period rooms of the American Wing of the museum.

Similar to the September event, there will be 400 guests this year, lower than the pre-pandemic highs of 500-600 attendees. 

The other four are Ford, the celebrated fashion designer who’s also an acclaimed film director, Janicza Bravo (Zola), Julie Dash (Daughters Of The Dust) and Autumn de Wilde (who directed the Jane Austen adaptation Emma. and is also a photographer).

The first part of the exhibition will remain on display in the rooms of the Anna Wintour Costume Center, along with the second part, until September 5.

More than half the pieces in the opening exhibition will be rotated out and garments from designers not yet featured will go on display.

The Met Gala is a huge money-maker for the museum, and provides the Costume Institute with its main source of funding.

KYLIE JENNER’S MET GALA LOOKS OVER THE YEARS

The youngest child of Kris Jenner has not hit the Met Gala as often as her sisters Kendall Jenner and Kim Kardashian.

But when the mother-of-two has attended the high-profile fashion event, she has managed to slay it.

Her first gala was in 2016 as she looked breathtakingly gorgeous in a shimmery silver Balmain gown. A rose tinted gown with a blonde bob in 2017 hit all the right notes.  Jenner then went with a classic: a strapless black gown from Alexander Wang in 2018. In 2019 she dazzled in a violet tone for Versace with matching hair.

Here is a close look at all her smart choices. 

 

2016 – BALMAIN

It was her very first Met Gala event and she managed to do well in her crystal embellished slim fit gown from Balmain.

Jenner looked stupendous as she glowed under the camera lights.

The Life Of Kylie star added sparkly heels, diamond earrings and wisely went with a bob hairstyle that brought out her strong jaw line and long neck.

The theme was Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology.

The star looked like a rare rose as she took on the red carpet alone.

The Calabasas, California native was regal as she wore a dusty pink Versace dress with a netted overlay that had gold flowers on it. There was also gold fringe hanging from the sleeves. 

The star went with a platinum blonde bob hairstyle that hit just the right note.

The theme was Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between.

2018 – ALEXANDER WANG

Kylie had just welcomed her daughter Stormi months earlier but still pulled off a stunning red carpet look.

The beauty wowed in a strapless Alexander Wang gown with a cut out in front and a long train.

She said later that the dress was so tight it split open, causing a wardrobe malfunction.

The TV fixture added sunglasses and brought beau Travis Scott, a rapper, as her date. 

The theme was Heavenly Bodies: Fashion & The Catholic Imagination.

This purple look packed a powerful punch for the pretty young lady.

The siren – whose cosmetics collection was already a massive hit – looked like a boss in the showgirl style.

She had on a strapless Versace dress with swirly lines.

And the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star added a feathered boa that looked like it had been borrowed from a Las Vegas show.

Even her hair was dyed a pale lavender color to pull the entire color theme together.

Sisters Kim and Kendall were also at the event that year as they posed with friend Jennifer Lopez. 

The theme was Camp: Notes on Fashion.
