As the celebrities arrived on Monday night Met Gala Wearing outfits worth thousands of dollars, Kanye West graced the pink carpet in a jacket that cost $ 40.
West attended the gala with his wife Kim Kardashian on Monday wearing a black Dickies zip-up jacket paired with black pants and Yeezy boots, making her one of the most affordable ensemble for fans to replicate. Guests were invited to follow the theme of the gala, “Camp: Notes on Fashion,” based on a 1964 landmark essay by Susan Sontag.
“This Dickies, with Yeezy boots,” the rapper told reporters of his outfit on Monday.
The jacket, made from a combination of polyester and cotton, is currently sold at Target for $ 40 and comes in five different colors. Dickies is selling the jacket for $ 42.99 on its own website. Boots from West’s Yeezy fashion line aren’t as affordable and could cost customers anywhere from $ 400 to $ 500. Despite the high price of her shoes, West’s outfit still costs a lot less than other jaw-dropping clothes.
Kardashian attended the event, dubbed fashion’s “Super Bowl,” wearing a custom beaded latex Thierry Mugler gown that took eight months to create.
“This is the first time in 20 years that Mr. Mugler has designed for Maison Mugler. So coming to design this dress for me is such an honor, ”Kardashian told Vogue on Monday. “It’s been about eight months since it’s been brewing … he imagined me this Californian girl coming out of the ocean, wet, dripping.”
