One of the best parts of the Met Gala is seeing what all the stars are wearing as soon as they step onto the red carpet. One of the outfits people can’t stop talking about this year is Kim Kardashian West’s faceless look in her iconic Balenciaga ensemble that didn’t show an inch of skin and made headlines almost immediately.
There was a lot of speculation about the dress, with some fans saying that it probably wasn’t even Kardashian West herself who wondered how she was able to look as she made her way up the famous stairs to the event.
One thing is certain – for the average person, it won’t take long to look like this. After all, the only thing that is needed is to wear only clothes, as no extras are needed.
However, in true Kardashian West fashion, it turns out that the reality star did, in fact, go all out. Let’s talk about how Kim Kardashian West looked stunning under her full masked Met Gala look.

Kardashian West is known for her love of makeup, and only on very rare occasions is she seen without it. It was easy for fans to assume that on the night of the Met Gala, she didn’t have to worry about asking her makeup artist for a great look, but it turns out that wasn’t the case.
She didn’t keep it a secret for long, either, with her makeup artist, Mario Dedivanovic, posting the all-gleaming photo of her to Instagram, with the caption “Behind the mask.” She used products from La Mer, KKW Beauty (of course), and her own makeup by the Mario brand, making sure Kardashian West was totally ready for the big night — even if no one could see!
Kim Kardashian West’s Unique Met Gala Look
In case you somehow missed it, the queen of reality television had a unique look at the Met Gala this year. According to BuzzfeedNewsKardashian West arrived at the event in Balenciaga’s full black outfit, which obscured her entire face and was in line with this year’s theme, “American Independence.”
The dress was beautiful on top, consisting of tights, a short skirt, long sleeves, and a matching mask and train. Most people were stunned at her fashion choice, and Kardashian West herself admitted that she couldn’t see anything.
In fact, she didn’t even recognize her sister, saying that “Kendall was calling my name and I couldn’t see who she was, but I saw the outline of her fabulous dress.” As if the faceless dress wasn’t bold enough, Kardashian West wore a 75-inch ponytail that snapped into her back, and cost $10,000.
