Celebrity News September 12, 2021 Kim Kardashian Leathers Up with Outrageous New Look Splash News Leather mommy?! Kim Kardashian had opinions flying with her latest get-up — a Balenciaga head-to-toe leather look that she rocked in 85-degree weather! Arriving at her NYC hotel this weekend ahead of Monday's Met Gala, Kim K was spotted strolling from her car to the hotel lobby completely covered in black leather, including a BDSM-ready hood.

People reports that fans and others weren't wild about the fashion statement, including posting existential questions like, "This is fashion?" Others likened the look to the late drag artist Leigh Bowery. But was it about fashion at all, or about promo for her estranged husband Kanye West's "Donda" album? Just last month, West arrived in a similar face mask by Balenciaga — and a bulletproof vest adorned with the word "Donda" — for one of his album's listening parties. Kim was in leather that day, too. Whatever her intention, she was proud of the impact, posting a paparazzi photo of herself in the look on Instagram and captioning it simply with a knife emoji! Kim is expected to appear at the Met Gala, the theme of which this year is "In America: A Lexicon of Fashion." #Fashion #KanyeWest #KimKardashian #MetGala #instagram More Kim Kardashian Is ‘Not Okay’ After Son Saint ‘Broke His Arm in a Few Places’ Are Kim Kardashian & Kanye West Reconciling?
