Kim Kardashian shocked everyone when she arrived at the 2021 Met Gala in an all-black outfit that did not show an inch of her skin. The outfit was so 'covered up' that even the 40-year-old’s face was not visible. But she managed to rock the look. However, a picture of her with half-sister, Kendall Jenner, went viral from the event.

Kendall attended the gala held at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York in a semi-sheer gown adorned with jewels, inspired by Audrey Hepburn in 'My Fair Lady'. The viral picture from the event showed the sisters standing in front of each other. The 40-year-old Kim Kardashian had her arms outstretched, while the 25-year-old Kendall just looked confused as she leaned forward. Several fans made fun of the pic, speculating that the sisters had difficulty recognizing each other because of Kim's outfit.

Not so surprisingly, the fans’ speculations were true as Kim confirmed it in her Instagram Story on Thursday, September 16. She said, “Kendall was calling my name and I couldn't see who it was but I saw the outline of her sparkly dress [loudly crying face emoji].” The hilarious picture also gave birth to a number of memes that were later shared on Twitter.

A tweet read which came attached with the hysterical photo, “- Kim can you even see me under that mask? + I sure do ! #MetGala2021 #MetGala.” The second one stated, “Kim: ‘Kendall I thought we agreed on the matching outfits?!’ Kendall: ‘I didn’t know you were being serious!” #MetGala.’” “Kim: Kendall! I swear it’s me Kim, Your Sister,” the third added.

Besides her dress, Kim also stirred a lot of speculations when she walked the red carpet with an unidentified man, who too was covered in head-to-toe black. Initially, people thought that the man was the mother-of-four’s former husband, Kanye West, whom she married in 2014. But it was revealed that he was actually Balenciaga's Creative Director Demna Gvasalia. An insider told PEOPLE, “Even though Kanye is not attending tonight, his presence will be felt on the carpet. It was Kanye who introduced Kim to Demna and was instrumental in the newly formed relationship between her and Balenciaga.”

The source continued, “This look on Kim is like a new subculture and fashion statement. No logo, no face, but everyone knows it's her. Kanye gave her the courage to push creativity and people's imagination through art. It's the ultimate confidence,” before adding, “It's always been important to Kim to have a good relationship with Kanye. They are not getting back together though. For a long time, Kanye was very upset and disappointed that Kim filed for divorce. She understood why and gave him space.”
