(SPOT.ph) Earlier today, September 14 (the evening of September 13 in U.S. time), the 2021 Met Gala took place at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. The annual event serves as a huge fundraiser for the Museum’s Costume Institute and also marks the opening of its annual fashion exhibit—dubbed "In America: A Lexicon of Fashion," which was also the ball's official theme. But let's be real: Everyone in the world watches the Met Gala just to see celebs, public figures, and cultural icons alike rocking ornate, over-the-top gowns and suits. Many outfits from 2021's guest list made headlines—from Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's political statement of a white gown to Lil Nas X's transforming gold ensemble—but perhaps no outfit was as talked about (or as meme-worthy) as Kim Kardashian's all-black, full-body coverage outfit.

Kardashian caught the Internet’s attention with a simple black Balenciaga dress, which she paired with a full-coverage face mask, gloves, boots, and tights all in the same color. The outfit showed Kardashian as both a completely anonymous figure in monochrome and yet the most eye-catching person in the entire room. With all the memes that came about following Kim K’s beige carpet appearance, folks all over the world are no doubt going to recreate the look either for laughs or as an instantly recognizable halloween costume. If you, too, are thinking of recreating look, we round up some pieces below to help you out. These are by no means haute couture, but we think you'll agree that it's close enough.

Shop these pieces to recreate Kim Kardashian's Met Gala 2021 look:

The centerpiece of Kardashian’s Met Gala outfit is a thigh-length black dress with flowy sleeves. Rock a similar silhouette with this loose sweater dress from H&M, which sports the same color and is at about the same length.


Available online; see a list of H&M stores.

Stretch Jersey Full Length Leggings (P495) from MUJI

As the founder of underwear and shapewear brand SKIMS—and a lover of minimalist, form-fitting pieces—Kardashian's choice of skin-tight black leggings is perfectly on-brand for the reality star. You can go with any plain black tights that you've got in your closet to copy her look—we'd recommend choosing a pair that extends until the ankle to mimic the head-to-toe black ensemble. These leggings from MUJI would be a great option.

Available online; see a list of MUJI stores.

Blatta Gloves (P895) from Aldo

Yup, even Kardashian's hands went totally concealed for her Met Gala look, so be sure to cover your fingers and palms, too when recresting it. These simple black Aldo gloves should do the job.

Available online.

Pointed Heel Ankle Boots (P2,295) from Mango

For shoes, Kim K opted for classic black boots with a stiletto heel and a pointed toe. These sleek Mango boots would fit the look perfectly—no need to go for a knee-high pair as your leggings should do the job when it comes to covering your legs. 

Available online and at Mango stores nationwide.

Full Face Mask (P301) from Wind Run Sports

Though not technically the main part of the outfit, the black mask Kardashian donned totally stole the show. Complete your Kim K-inspired costume with this mask from Wind Run Sports, which is actually made to protect the face during outdoor activities like biking. Unlike Kardashian's choice of headpiece, this mask has an opening for the eye area—we figured you'd want to be able to see while wearing this all-black look.

Available online.
