Kim on the other hand wore a stunning dress by Thierry Mugler who she believes started the theme of the 2019 Met Gala. “He is the king of camp, he invented camp,” said Kardashian at a recent fitting for her dress.

Kim appears in a video by Vogue getting fitted in the Thierry Mugler dress.

According to Kim, Kanye reportedly said that this was her time to shine. "My first Met year I was just his plus-one. I wasn’t really invited yet. This year [Kanye said], ‘I'm just your plus-one. You’re the cover girl and I’m your plus-one, so I’ll just kind of fade out in the background and be your date and let you shine,", Vogue reports.

Well done Kanye, pure class!
