The Met Gala Returns! And So Do the Met Gala Memes

By David T. Valentin


The Met Gala was last night, sporting popular figures like from YouTube influencers, pop stars, to politicians dressing in the most exaggerated and expensive outfits for the night. And while everyone is usually always so fixated the day after on who wore what and who came with who, I like to see which kind of memes are trending.


One celebrity, Kim K., caught the attention of the internet when she showed up to the red carpet draped from head to toe in black fabric with a split train trailing closely behind her. As she moved around the gala last night, a strange man dressed all in black, face masked and a hoodie draped over his head followed her around.


Many people speculated the masked man following her around was her ex-husband, Kanye West. It certainly looked like an old, Kanye fit that he would wear. On top of that, the two had matching Instagram icons—a single black circle.


Later in the night, E! News confirmed the masked man was not Kanye West, but none other than creative director of Balenciaga and award-winning fashion designer, Demna Gvasalia.


But enough of the speculation and more memes.
