Kim Kardashian is famed for flaunting her body confidence in revealing ensembles but she’s ditched her skimpy looks for head to toe coverage in recent weeks
Kim Kardashian’s style has evolved throughout the years.
The reality TV star – who started out her career as a personal stylist for Paris Hilton – has often tried out different looks but she usually returns to her figure-hugging, cleavage dipping and bottom enhancing wardrobe staples.
However, in recent weeks she has taken her fashion choices up a notch by sporting leather and spandex ensembles – complete with masks that completely conceal her famous face.
And on Monday evening, as she stepped out onto the red carpet for the prestigious Met Gala at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York she once again ensured she gained attention with an unexpected fashion choice.
Kim styled up a black bodysuit that covered her entire body – including her face.

The creation – which featured a mask that wrapped around her head, a tight mini-dress, leggings, long gloves and pointed boots – was dreamt up by Balenciaga creative director Demna Gvasalia.
As soon as mother-of-four Kim was snapped at the event many suspected that her estranged husband, Kanye West, influenced her fashion choice – especially due to him becoming a fan of full-face coverings whilst promoting his newest album, Donda, in recent weeks.
Several social media users even speculated that Kim’s bold look was a sign that she and Kanye were putting the breaks on their divorce.
Taking to Twitter, one penned: “I know Kim is back with her husband if she ever left. That ojuju calabar outfit screams Kanye.”
More echoed: “Kim is definitely back with Kanye, letting him impose his stupid fashion on her” and “what the f**k is kim wearing lmaoooo and since when is she back with kanye #MetGala.”
Others surprised by her getup added: “Is Kim back with Kanye because that Balenciaga outfit choice could not have been hers surely …” and “Hahahaha she’s definitely back with kanye cause kim k would never dress like this.”
TMZ report that the rapper was the driving force behind the look and that it’s he who “gave Kim the courage to push the envelope with creativity and people’s imagination through art.”
It is not the first time that Kanye has played a role in Kim’s wardrobe and she has often spoken about how he has influenced her in the fashion department.

When Kim and Kanye first started dating, the Yeezy designer convinced Kim it was time to clear out her wardrobe.
During an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Kim said: “He is giving me a full clothing makeover.
“Kanye’s definitely inspired me to be a little bit more of an individual. I think my style is just evolving and changing and I think it should.”
Kim previously told CNN how she struggled to find fashion inspiration but thanks to a kind gift from Kanye that she began her education.
She told how he sent her a book written by the former Vogue Paris editor Carine Roitfield’s book, Carine Roitfeld: Irreverent.
“Before my husband and I started dating, he brought me Carine Roitfeld’s coffee table book and was like, ‘You should be studying this book, this is like the fashion bible,'” she said.
