Every Look Kim Kardashian & Kendall Jenner Have Worn To The Met Gala

It’s become a Met Gala tradition for the Kardashian-Jenners to show up as a unit, creating some of the annual fête’s most talked-about looks. In 2013, Kim certainly started out her Met Gala history with a head-turning look, wearing a custom Givenchy gown that inspired a thousand memes overnight. Kendall Jenner, who made her debut just a year later, has also become a must-see of the gala’s red carpet. Meanwhile, the entire family—from Kris and Kylie Jenner to Khloé and Kourtney Kardashian—are always sure to bring their very best for fashion’s biggest night. Truly, it’s hard to believe that just a little over a decade ago, it was only Kim Kardashian and her now ex-husband Kanye West who represented the family on the Met steps. Here, take a look back at all of Kim Kardashian and Kendall Jenner’s Met Gala looks.

2013: Punk: Chaos to Couture

Kim’s debut appearance at the gala was one for the history books. Then pregnant, she attended the fête as Kanye’s plus one in an Internet-breaking Givenchy look designed by Riccardo Tisci. The dress, which drew comparisons to everything from grandmother florals to a Mrs Doubtfire character, caused such a reaction online that it caused the influencer to cry all “the whole way home.”

In 2014, Kim didn’t grab as many headlines as she did the year prior—perhaps, a reality she preferred. She sported a satin Lanvin confection designed with a sweetheart neckline and a steep leg slit.

Just as she was making a name for herself on the catwalk, Kendall staged her Met debut in 2014. She channeled that year’s theme, Charles James: Beyond Fashion, in an Old Hollywood look courtesy of Topshop.

Now a regular, Kim started to hit her Met style stride in 2015. Alongside her now ex-husband Kanye West, the mogul commanded attention in a feathered and sheer Roberto Cavalli number. Kanye, fittingly, was also dressed in the Italian brand.

2016: Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology

2016’s theme, Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology, had attendees offering up their versions of sci-fi fashion. Some, like Kim, went all out. She wore a metallic Balmain number and bleached her eyebrows for an alien effect.

Jenner offered a different interpretation of that year’s dress code in a laser cut Atelier Versace gown.

Hi, Kylie! The youngest Jenner sister made her Met Gala debut, in Balmain of course, during the 2016 staging.

2017: Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garcons: Art Of The In-Between

In 2017, Kim showed up solo. And in a very simple Vivienne Westwood slip dress.

This year, it was Kendall, not Kim, who was grabbing most of the headlines. The model brought La Perla lingerie to the Met steps in this cut-out lace and mesh look.

Still in her experimental hair era, Kylie stepped out in 2017 with a sharp bob and a conversation-starting Versace dress.

Back to business. For Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination in 2018, Kim went with a chainmail Versace gown punctuated by an embellished gold cross.

Fittingly, Kendall looked heaven-sent in an angel white pant suit designed by Virgil Abloh for Off-White.

We’re still wondering how Kim fit into this teensy tiny Thierry Mugler dress which imitated a washed-up “wet look.” Regardless, it was pretty major. Mugler came out of retirement to design the latex beaded gown which reportedly took eight months to design.

Orange you glad Kendall treated the Met’s pink carpet to this Versace moment?

Kylie, attending with her then boyfriend Travis Scott, matched her sister in some feathered Versace of her own.

Kim’s take on America: A Lexicon Of Fashion? A face-obscuring Balenciaga t-shirt dress, naturally. Though it took some a minute to figure out the woman behind the dress, we’d recognize that silhouette just about anywhere.

Kendall interpreted 2021’s theme more literally, opting for a beaded and sheer Givenchy look inspired by American fashion icon Audrey Hepburn.

Kim’s most memorable, and controversial, Met Gala look came in 2022. She wore Marilyn Monroe’s Jean Louis dress—the very one the bombshell sported to sing “Happy Birthday Mr. President”—and even dyed her hair bleach blonde. Later, eyebrows were raised when it was revealed that Kim didn’t completely fit into the dress—she covered the unzipped closure with a white stole—causing questions if she’d damaged a piece of style history for a photo op.

Like Kim did years before, Kendall bleached her eyebrows to attend the 2022 gala. She sported a statement Prada look that consisted of a ruffled ball gown and a completely sheer top.

Kylie, in bridal Off-White, Kourtney, and Khloé later met up with Kendall. In true form, Kim was the very last attendee to arrive at the gala that year.

2023’s Met Gala, which honored Karl Lagerefeld, called for a Kardashian-Jenner reunion atop the Met steps. Despite very contrasting looks—Kim in Schiaparelli, Kendall in Marc Jacobs, and Kylie in Haider Ackermann—each sister embodied a little piece of the late designer.
