Why Kylie Jenner Wore a Wedding Dress to the Met Gala and Skipped the ‘Gilded Glamour’ Theme

Kylie Jenner drew some criticism on social media for her Off-White wedding dress and backwards baseball cap veil she wore to the ‘Gilded Glamour’ themed Met Gala last night due to dress code distancing inspired by the 1800s. But, Jenner wrote on Instagram, the bridal look was meant to honor the late Off-White designer Virgil Abloh more than play into the theme of the evening.

“Virgil and I were supposed to go to the Met together before it was postponed to 2020,” Jenner wrote. “To celebrate V tonight and his amazing legacy truly means the world to me, I’m honored to wear this dress and honor my talented beautiful friend. We felt you tonight Virgil and we love you forever ♾ & thanks to the whole team @off____white!!”

vogue pointed out that the dress is based on Off-White’s final Fall 2022 look, who appears in the Met fashion show the night celebrated.

So Jenner’s outfit doesn’t represent a veiled relationship status announcement either, even after she and Travis Scott sparked secret wedding rumors in mid-March. Scott did not attend the Met Gala with his partner; Jenner walked with her sister Khloé Kardashian, who wore a gold Moschino dress.

Jenner posted a very rare comment about Scott and their relationship this weekend for his birthday. “Happy birthday my love my best friend the most special person and the father of our babies @travisscott,” she wrote on her Instagram story.
