Kim Kardashian's Met Gala look compared to gimp mask and Harry Potter Dementor

By Molly Pike

Kim Kardashian had one of the most surprising outfits at the 2021 Met Gala on Monday night.

She arrived at the prestigious fashion event in a black bodysuit that had a face covering that completely disguised her face.

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star, 40, was compared to everything from a "gimp" and a Dementor from Harry Potter to an alien.

Her outfit, which was designed by Demna Gvasalia, the creative director of Balenciaga, completely covered her body from head to toe.

It had long sleeves, long trousers and matching black boots and gloves, with a long train trailing behind Kim.

Viewers were completely baffled by the bizarre look and took to Twitter to question it.

One tweeted: "Am I hallucinating?? I could have sworn Kim Kardashian wore that ridiculous gimp outfit to a previous Met Gala!!"

"Kim K dressed up as a Dementor from Harry Potter wig #metgala," another posted.

"Bruh Kim Kardashian looking like an unlockable character," a third wrote.

A fourth agreed: "What is Kim Kardashian doing and who allowed her into the Met Gala?"

"Why is Kim Kardashian cosplaying as a shadow?" a fifth said.

Another wrote: "How could people recognise this is Kim Kardashian? It could be someone else."

"Who invited the Kim reaper?" another joked.

Fans were convinced that Kim had arrived at the glamorous event with her estranged husband Kanye West.

The man was also wearing a head to toe black outfit so his face was hidden.

Kim and Kanye have been seen together on numerous occasions since they confirmed they're divorcing, leading their fans to believe it's not really over.

But the man who attended the Met Gala with Kim was actually Balenciaga creative director Demna Gvasalia, who designed both their outfits.

While Kanye skipped the famous red carpet, it's said that Kim's kooky outfit was all his idea.

TMZ reports that the rapper "gave Kim the courage to push the envelope with creativity and people's imagination through art."

But the status of the former couple's relationship currently remains unclear.

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