- Kim Kardashian said pearls were falling from her gown at the 2023 Met Gala.
- The gown, by Schiaparelli, featured pearls as a tribute to the late designer Karl Lagerfeld.
- North West didn’t attend the Met Gala, but she did watch her family walk the carpet from the car.
Kim Kardashian said her 2023 Met Gala gown was rocking pearls on her way to the event — and it was her daughter, North West, who picked them up.
Kardashian, who is known for her unforgettable appearance at the Met Gala, arrived at the event on Monday literally dripping in pearls. Her Schiaparelli gown covered her with strings of pearls that formed a cowl and extended down her legs. The pearls were a tribute to the late Karl Lagerfeld, whose fashion legacy was the theme of the evening.
While this year’s look was less controversial than Marilyn Monroe’s 2022 dress, Kardashian told Vogue there were a few mishaps with the dress on its way to the event.
“Some popped in the way, and I asked my daughter to catch them all,” Kardashian told Vogue on the red carpet, referring to 9-year-old North West. “They are real pearls, and she had them all in her purse.”
North walked out with her mom on her way to the event, and the pair were photographed leaving the hotel. Per Allure, the eldest Kardashian daughter wore a pastel Chanel jacket, jeans, and a pearl clutch.
While North didn’t walk the carpet herself, Kardashian told Vogue that North was in the room getting ready, watching her family walk the red carpet from the car. Her sisters, Kylie and Kendall Jenner, were also in attendance, and Kardashian said they all took a swig of alcohol together before the event.
“This year, I just wanted to feel the magic,” Kardashian told Vogue. “I didn’t really feel pressured. I just wanted to have a good time.”
