fashion The real meaning behind Kim Kardashian’s Met Gala dress. Katie Stow

Kim hasn’t spoken much of the Playboy shoot since, with the only on-camera conversation about the photos happening on a Keeping Up With The Kardashians reunion, hosted by Andy Cohen. Andy asked if it was something Kim regretted, and she simply responded, “I would say, don’t be so trusting”.

But it seems that Kim is ‘speaking’ about it now through the means of her sartorial choices on the most photographed red carpet on planet Earth.

Kim donned 50,000 pearls draped over her semi-naked/semi-Skims-covered body. Paired them with a ‘just rolled out of bed in the 1950s’ up-do and a f**king massive jewelled necklace. 

The Met Gala 2023 theme was all to do with Chanel and Karl Largerfeld’s legacy, but that wasn’t the focus of Kim’s outfit. Instead, she was making a statement and reclaiming a time in her past she’d love to rewrite. 

She mimicked a look from a shoot she hated and elevated it tenfold.

She walked that look up the steps of the Met, knowing that millions of people would see her, photograph her, talk about her, praise her, idolise her. 

And with every single piece of positivity garnered from this look, she’s writing over her own history.

Don’t you dare ever say that Kim Kardashian doesn’t know what she’s doing. Because she just changed her own narrative without saying a single word.
