For the 2nd year in a row, Kim Kardashian attended the Met Gala solo. After teasing social media with rumors all week, her husband Kanye West confirmed to Us Weekly that he decided not to escort Kim to the gala.

The 37-year-old mother-of-3 reportedly flew to Wyoming to beg Kanye to accompany her to the Met Gala, but he refused. Kim looked far from Heavenly in a skin tight gold Versace gown. In keeping with the evening's theme, she had a bejeweled cross sewn onto her gown.

Solange Knowles opted for a black Heavenly Angel look in a custom PVC vinyl getup designed by Van Herpen. Solange wore a gold halo over a du-rag on her head. She asked her Twitter followers for inspiration to choose her outfit for the evening. Solange's sister, Beyonce, skipped the Met Gala this year.

Zendaya must have missed the memo that the Met Gala theme was Heavenly Bodies: Fashion & The Catholic Imagination -- not Medieval Imagination. Her costume could best be described as a Medieval Chainmail Armor.

Sean Combs and singer Cassie Ventura attended the Met Gala, both wearing a tailored tuxedo pantsuit. Her face was so heavily painted she was almost unrecognizable.

    Kim didn’t allow Kanye to come because that would have been too many flashes for him

    Ewww why do black owned blogs always put that white Jezebel as the first pic? I know y'all want hits but how disrespectful to the beautiful women of color who actually are talented and didn't sleep their way to the top!

    Kim looks a mess in that cheap looking prom dress that slapped a cross on and her sister looks a mess too

    All the black queens are SLAYING and Jlo too

    Zendaya must have missed the memo that the Met Gala theme was Heavenly Bodies: Fashion & The Catholic Imagination — not Medieval Imagination.
    She is on theme. She is dressed like a soldier during the Crusades. Catholics were there.

  • Sally Wright McLinn

    I don't like any of these fashions. TOOOO way out. Anywayt, the Met ball according NYP and NYDN has lost its luster and is having a hard time getting A-listers to attend and to buy tickets.

  • Sally Wright McLinn

    The Met has lost its luster. They're inviting C and D list artists. Not the A listers.

  • Wreckognize Game

    ?too funny

  • zero options

    Kim’s make up is nice that’s all I got. Nothing special about her at all. The outfits I loved this year were mainly Rihanna and Solange. Cardi B looked adorable with her baby bump too and her dress was amazing. Dressed like a queen

    Zendaya needs a new stylist.
    I like Migos jackets.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Lol. You're in heat...

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Wait. Kanye didn't show up?

    Random- I'm listening to Jazmine Sullivan's song "Mascara" and she said, "While you in the kitchen cooking for your broke ninja, you could be in the gym working on your figure". LOL! I have heard this song like 10 times and have never heard that. That's funny to me.

  • FukkFolks2018

    That the Catholic Church was a huge part of the Crusades? Bc it was basically them against the Roman Empire fussing over who gets to appoint church leaders and a whole lot of other stuff that is way too intricate to explain.

    Umm AP World History? And if that doesnt count then World Religion I and II at Barton College.

  • iWasteTime

    You in heat.
    go watch Pynk by Ms. Monae :)

    wow .. i literally said this looks like some star wars sh*t.

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    Jennifer Lopez looks good. Cassie pretty but seen look before. I think the Kardashians are plain on the red carpet always. Nicki looks beautiful but still RIHANNA did it for me. Always effortless.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    Yup. It sure is.
    It is the pathway from which LIFE comes.

  • Guest

    Everyone who stayed on theme looked good. Rhianna looked the best as always.

  • Guest

    Same thing I thought. Anna said "that's it, I ain't doing this ish no more." Lol.

  • chaisun

    What event was this gif from, do you know lol?

  • chaisun

    And she's beautiful too.

  • Panama

    kim is looking like melania in the face...and i HATE the 90's porn star acrylic nails.

  • Rayne

    Ion know what kinda waist Kim tried to achieve but it looks balloonish. Kylie and Travis don’t belong there.

  • Dowoop

    They sure was...Killing everybody.

  • wonderwoman

    Rihanna, J-Lo, and Olivia Mum was my top 3. Zendaya also looked great, she kept on theme(Joan of Arc).

  • MsPam

    According to some people Anna is the problem?!?????

  • n1kk1a

    Kim looks like she should be posted up at Madame Toussad’s wax museum...

  • i troll it like i see it

    Wasn't it difficult to get invited to this event at one time? Didn't the exclusivity add to the allure, the fact that it WASN'T like the MTV music awards, no trendy flash in the pan folks, people of the moment, reality stars, rats and hood boogers? I remember looking at pictures and reading about the met gala years ago and it was A list only, high end models, people who'd payed their dues....etc. I swear ever since Anna Wintour let Kim Kardashian in that year when she was pregnant....

  • i troll it like i see it

    Olivia's Munn did look nice, Rihanna, and Solange looked nice. All were respectful of the theme but I wonder why some people just simply refuse to even try.

  • i troll it like i see it

    I noticed that too, his hard work and clean diet are paying off because you could see the physique through the suit.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Solange wore a gold halo over a du-rag on her head

  • Quitedeliteful

    Kim Kardashian's dress really is beautiful. It looks like it was made just for her and fits her perfectly...

  • i troll it like i see it

    Well maybe not everyone there shouldn't have been invited. The attendance was very trendy I noticed. It does make sense that some folks wouldn't know how to look.

  • i troll it like i see it

    Thank you! It's lost its exclusivity, that's the first thing I noticed. It's kind of a hot mess now...

  • i troll it like i see it

    She chairs the event so if the doors have been opened for anyone and everyone just to make folks feel special, it is her fault.

  • i troll it like i see it

    Exactly what the hell is going on?

  • i troll it like i see it

    But why the hell won't he just get his fat ass on a treadmill three times a week, mix in some strength training and eat smaller portions like he demands of his wife? There's no way she could gain weight without him saying something. Men need to understand that physical attraction goes both ways. He was never good looking, now he's getting fat as hell too?

  • Sid

    Yes I agree 100%.
    Her makeup was flawless as well

  • Miss Thang

    Grammys lol.. this was the year they sang "When You Believe" from the Prince of Egypt soundtrack <3 <3 <3

  • wonderwoman

    Yes, it was a lot of them that didn’t even try. They just put on a gown that a designer sent over.

  • Sista~Truth

    Nothing about Solange attire looks heavenly

  • SemajBeyPhilly

    Kim looks gorgeous! From the hair down is flawless. Love it.

  • TheOwley

    Kanye opened this door for her 100%. Now she don't need him no more.

  • tia

    it most definitely has paid off! you're right.

  • ???TheRider???

    Dare I say.....Travis looks nice. I've never seen him without shades on and if I look closely, imagine his braids gone, he's a bit handsome.

  • Yashara Bat Orion

    Kim’s body is distorted with fake uneven hips and a fake lopsided booty. Don’t know how some of theses stars came to be heroes and sheroes. All I see is fakeness and lifeless souls.

  • itsjismemelly

    casie is jis GORGE!!!

  • Trace da Ace

    hey she had to keep it hood somewhere in that outfit....I love it!

  • Smith Jane

    Not feeling Jlo, Kim K, Solange, Cassie, or Kylie (<—the fawk was she thinking?!) Zendaya and Rih alll day...

  • Smith Jane

    Anna is being pushed out. Thank God. Allowing celebs & their spawns was the beginning of the end.

  • Drea982

    I see Cassie and Diddy came as a gay couple. French Montana couldn't make it, I see.

  • NY_bornNraised

    Kim.K should have stayed home. Her need to be in the spot light is terrible. Her husband at home fighting demons and she out on the town. shame on her.

  • Munchosgirl

    But it's true...she said she was representing for the Black Saint Heron..

  • bemetoo

    I must say 95% of attendees were fawk up..rihanna thick and all killed it zendaya and top some models also look good

  • Yardgirl

    I have heard through the grapevine that the "old moneyed" veterans are over the Met Ball. This is what I found on the interweb:

    So If I Can Afford a Ticket, Can I Go? Dream on. Unlike other cultural fund-raisers, like the New York City Ballet gala or the Frick Collection Young Fellows Ball, the Met gala is invitation only, and there is a waiting list. Qualifications for inclusion have to do with buzz and achievement (and beauty), a.k.a. the gospel according to Anna, more than money. Ms. Wintour has final say over every invitation and attendee, which means that even if a company buys a table, it cannot choose everyone who sits at its table: It must clear the guest with her and Vogue and pray for approval.

    I can vouch that Anna has final say. I had schemed to see if my company would buy a table but after I heard that SHE has final say on who gets to attend I said eff it!! If I got them to sponsor and then was denied going I would be beyond bitter. Plus they tend to sponsor local charities anyway and those I get to attend rub elbows with the wealthy folks who look like average Joes not like these dressed up nouveau riche!

  • Dystaney Kimble

    I can imagine Kanye feeling too fat to go . He should have never came out and said anything about lipo , smh

    But on second though if you can keep Kanye lipo secret why is the paparazzi catching you guys elsewhere ?!? Exactly! . You guys want to stay in the press and call them but the speed dial failed that day .

    Nicki looks like she was tryinng to bring the Chun-lol and definitely didn't care about the theme

    Kylie and J-lo looks good .

    I want to love Solange so bad ... I mean to the point where if someone ask me do I like her I'll probably say yes but , uhhhh . She has Rihanna fashion sense with a Alicia Key swag . ... doesn't mix . I only know a couple of songs .

  • Quitedeliteful

    Oh! I didn't know what her costume was all about...

  • Munchosgirl
  • starbright9449

    Had the theme been game of thrones inspired Zendaya would've won best dressed.

  • SandraRose

    I still don't get it. Solange is always extra.

  • Dahl

    Solange’s dress looks like a vaj to me ?? The Ball now seems like a joke, no one of substance anymore...

  • Guess Who

    Kim actually looks good in the pics. lower torso still sus af but she looks good. I like her makeup.

    Why is Travis Scott dressed like a member of the Gestapo?

  • Ozad

    that's the best Kim looked in a long time...Zendaya was giving Joan of arc ( a catholic saint) realness!!! she slayed!! Solange looked like an insect not a heavenly creature..Nicki, J-Lo looked tired...Janelle look was meh, tired of the black/white getups.

  • Shira Harding-James

    She is, I love it!

  • Taj

    Say what you want about Kimmy but she is a looker. I LOVE LOVE LOVE her met gala look. Classy and understated--especially for her. She looked like Elizabeth Taylor in Cleopatra. That just goes to show that the woman makes the dress and not the other way around. Her and her manufactured parts looked banging in that gold mesh gown.

  • chaisun

    Lol okay, thanks!

  • Ang

    That's why most of the A-Listers don't go anymore.

  • angelpat2812

    KimK looked stunning! I don't even care for her. But she looked absolutely gorgeous at the #MetGala2018 last night! Fact!

  • Allihave2say

    The Gestapo sent a lot of people into prayers.
