Kylie Jenner Shocks Everyone With Her MET Gala Hair

For her first ever Met Gala, Kylie Jenner made sure to slay.

The 18-year-old turned up to the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in New York in a floor length shimmering silver beaded Balmain dress that boasted long sleeves and a fringed hemline.

A little similar to Kim Kardashian‘s Roberto Cavalli dress from the year before, no?

And guess what? The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star did the unthinkable with her hair – she went au natural for the night.

Yep, for one of fashion’s biggest nights of the year – whose theme this year was ‘Manus x Machina: Fashion In An Age Of Technology’ – Kylie decided to keep things simple and ditch her fabulous wigs for a beautiful chin-grazing bob. Go girl!

> Kylie had a few reservations about walking in her super slinky dress…

 

And in case you thought the teenager might have been nervous about gracing such a prestigious red carpet, well, you’d be right.

Kris told E! backstage at the event that her teenage daughter had a few worries about her slinky custom-made gown. ‘She said, “Mom, the dress is tight. How am I supposed to get up the stairs?”‘, Kris spilled. LOL. 

> Kylie’s dress reminded us of Kim Kardashian’s Roberto Cavalli look from last year’s MET Gala

 

Still, at least she didn’t have to worry about looking smokin’ hot. She was wearing Balmain, after all. 

‘I knew Olivier would make me something perfect, so I wasn’t too concerned about the dress’, Jenner told Vogue backstage. Yep, she was definitely in safe hands…

> Eek! The perils of wearing a beaded gown, eh Kylie?

 

But there is always a price to pay for looking like you’re dripping in diamonds for the night – after the MET Gala was over, Kylie took to Snapchat to share her dress-related injuries. And it’s one we can all relate to…

Posting a photo of her scratched legs marked with some serious grazes, Kylie wrote: ‘When ur dress made you bleed and your feet are purple’.

Ahh. The price of being a Balmain goddess, eh?
