The gorgeous sapphire blue Lanvin gown Kimmy wore to the Met Gala in 2014 almost didn’t happen. Turns out that the star and her glam team had their hearts set on a completely different look for that year, which Kim recently shared on her app.
“My dress was originally made of this amazing leather with metallic detailing,”
“but we decided at the last minute to redo it in blue satin.”
Even though Kim looked stunning in the blue gown she ended up wearing to the event, we can’t help but think we prefer her in her original dress!
The alternative dress, also designed by Lanvin, featured the same strapless, layered shape but had some really interesting touches. We absolutely love the chunky nude belt and matching cuffs, and think it would have been a great fashion forward look for the Met Gala, an event that celebrates fashion and style in all of it’s wacky extremes.
The theme of the year was Charles James: Beyond Fashion, which to the non-fashion literate amongst us translates to highly structured, glamorous gowns and exquisite tailoring. Both of Kim’s dress choices fit the theme perfectly, but we cant help but wish she went with the gold! What do you think?
