Kim Kardashian In Maison Mugler by Thierry Mugler – 2019 Met Gala

Kim Kardashian In Maison Mugler by Thierry Mugler - 2019 Met Gala

You have to give it to Kim Kardashian. Not only did she embrace the 2019 Met Gala ‘Camp: Notes on Fashion’ theme on Monday (May 6) in New York City, she did so while fully playing to her bronzed figure-baring, skin-is-in, impossibly-small-waist aesthetic.

This custom Mugler piece was designed by Manfred Thierry Mugler; it’s a creation based on archive pieces for the MUGLER fashion house and, yes, it is made to look dripping wet — right down to her hair and water droplet mani.

As Kim posted photos to her Instagram story of Sophia Loren’s ‘Boy on a Dolphin’ iconic wet dress earlier today, it’s possible she was inspired by this moment for her own splash on the pink carpet.

Kim is also on Vogue’s May 2019 cover looking equally, well, dripping wet.

Clear Yeezy shoes completed the scintillating effect.

    I have to say it… this looks like milk dropping… for me it’s porn inspired… which also fits in theme. I don’t want to like it but she’s killing it. Perfectly done.

    I can’t believe I’m about to type these words, but Kim Kardashian is one of my favourites of the night. I think she perfectly fits the theme. Just her existence is pure camp; her life style, her beauty treatments, her proportions, her … augmentations.

    And this Mugler gown is a masterpiece of construction and craft. The fit is inconceivably perfect and the detailing is exquisite.

    I LIVE!

    It looks like she’s wearing a used condom!

    i love this. Its a mugler creation. and nobody could have done it better

    Not that she could ever embody camp because she’s so calculated, but what an epic fail.

    I love this. This dress is breathtaking. A little less boob would be nice but those crystals! Her hair and beauty look gorgeous too. I like the shorter length.

    I had a hard time focusing on her look. I was too distracted by the fact she looks like she CAN’T BREATHE!

    Have you ever seen a wet look like this on any carpet ever? No, because it’s theatrical, over the top, and flamboyant (a la the theme) while still holding on to her sexy aesthetic. The Met theme is up to interpretation, and imo she was best dressed.

  9. Guest May 7, 2019 at 2:09 pm #

    doesn’t she always dress like this?

  10. Guest May 7, 2019 at 11:11 am #

    Wet, flesh tone, and bodycon is such low-hanging fruit for Kim at this point. The look is instantly tired, even though the dress itself is a masterpiece.

  11. Guest May 7, 2019 at 9:58 am #

    I think she looks great a totally “on theme”. The dripping effect is a great idea! Well done to her whole team!

  12. Guest May 7, 2019 at 8:09 am #

    I get that it’s kind of on theme with the whole wet look, but she’s done this a thousand times before. The Met is an opportunity to wear something you wouldn’t have before. Imagine the reaction she’d get if she wore something that was bright and colourful and not skin tight, she could do the bare minimum and it would be more camp than this

    I’m glad she gave a reference to Sophia Loren because I eyerolled at first and thought it was solely referring to her vogue cover. I do occasionally wonder what her organs look like after all these waist defining stuff.

      Sophia Loren’s name should never be in the same sentence as Kimbo

  14. AnnaBanana87 May 7, 2019 at 7:39 am #

    It’s just Kim dressed as Kim on any ordinary day

  15. Guest May 7, 2019 at 6:57 am #

    Hate to say this given my hate towards her social media persona but let’s just be honest, SHE KILLED IT.

    She married the theme without looking not even a tiny bit customey, it flatters her, it hasn’t been done to death (like all the Gucci dresses and those wearing kilometric trains)…purrfect.

    Had this been floor length I think I would’ve passed out

  16. Phee phee May 7, 2019 at 5:08 am #

    Im not understanding the love for this really. It seems so ordinary for her…
    I love the crystals but we have seen this kind of look a thousand times on her already.
    Hate the shoes. Hate wet hair look.
    No denying how amazing the dripping crystals are though. But overall, same ole same ole.

  17. Guest May 7, 2019 at 3:06 am #

    I really love this. It fits the theme and her aesthetic and I really haven’t seen something like it before.

  18. Vu0n9 May 7, 2019 at 2:30 am #

    This is a such a masterpiece! Kim looks perfect h2t. Absolutely love the dripping wet idea.
    P/s: Thierry Mugler needs to come back to save Haute Couture. I can never have enough of him.

  19. Guest May 7, 2019 at 2:12 am #

    I don’t know but she kinda looks like she’s trying to fit into a wet sausage casing.

  20. Guest May 7, 2019 at 2:11 am #

    Very interesting, actually. Someone put a lot of thought into this look. One aspect of camp fashion is a “style and sensibility that regards something as appealing because of its bad taste and ironic value.” Who else but KK could capture that aspect in what I think is a bit of a self-aware way?

  21. Guest May 7, 2019 at 2:03 am #

    I can’t believe I am going to say this but I really like it – I love the Sophia Loren inspiration. Kanye on the other hand looks like guy who drove her to the Met.

      I love it too

  22. JasLinds May 7, 2019 at 2:03 am #

    She actually looks really good and it’s a fun interpretation of the theme. The construction and concept is amazing and kinda works!

  23. Guest May 7, 2019 at 1:53 am #

    I don’t see how she fits the theme. The theme is Camp. Not Wet bodycon.

  24. Vizual Ninja May 7, 2019 at 1:49 am #

    My eyes still hurt from rolling my eyes so hard after seeing her and Kanye. She looks like a glazed croissant and Kanye looks like her bodyguard. The makeup is great though.

    • MissHebble May 7, 2019 at 7:53 am #

      Glazed croissant had me howling! You’re not wrong though.

    • Guest May 7, 2019 at 11:34 am #

      Glazed croissant!
      And I agree with you totally.

    • Guest May 7, 2019 at 1:01 pm #

      Agree. Her makeup is great, everything else is just painful to watch.

  25. Guest May 7, 2019 at 1:43 am #

    I don’t want to love it but I love it. Only she can pull this off.
