Kim Kardashian poses with 'fake Kanye West' in Met Gala outfits that cover faces

By James Brinsford

Kim Kardashian posed up at the Met Gala in a bizarre outfit that covered her entire body - including her face.

She was seen posing alongside a man in matching attire, and fans had originally thought it was her estranged husband Kanye West.

But the man was actually Balenciaga creative director Demna Gvasalia.

Kim arrived at the Met Gala in a custom outfit designed by Demna, which incorporated a bodysuit with a black curve T-shirt under a T-shirt dress.

She added jersey boots Pantaleggings and a mask that covered her entire face in one of the boldest looks on a night full of glamour and sparkle.

While Kanye skipped the famous red carpet, it's said that the wild look was all his idea.

TMZ reports that the rapper was the driving force behind the look and that it's he who "gave Kim the courage to push the envelope with creativity and people's imagination through art."

There were crowds of fans to see Kim leave her hotel in New York City before she hit the red carpet but unfortunately the masked look did not go down well with people on social media.

One commenter wrote on Twitter : " Kim Kardashian can never get her MET Gala look right."

While another asked: "Who the hell dressed Kim Kardashian at the MET Gala?"

A third also was dismissive: "Wth is Kim kardashian wearing at the met gala"

Just hours before the big event, Kanye cleansed his social media accounts and unfollowed Kim on Instagram.

After seven years of marriage and four children together, it would seem that Kanye no longer wants pics of his estranged wife in his feed.

Their relationship took another down turn last month after Kanye admitted to cheating on Kim, which left her heartbroken and "conflicted".

He confessed to the alleged fling in a new song, Hurricane, in which he sings: "Here I go with a new chick... Still playing after two kids."

Page Six reported that the affair happened while Kanye struggled with alcohol addiction, with an insider saying: "The song is in a way his testimony of everything he did wrong and taking accountability for the marriage breakdown."

A second source added: “If you look closer to the lyrics he is referring to his infidelity during his marriage with Kim, even after two kids."
