The 41-year-old reality personality Kim Kardashian rehashed her 2021 Met Gala look, hiding her face with a striking black face mask at the Balenciaga Couture dinner event in Paris on Wednesday night, July 6. The mask which Kim used to cover her entire face, fit her whole head and curled under her chin. She paired the mask with a form-fitting, long-sleeved, high-collared black gown embellished with sequins.

However Kim's detractors criticised her appearance and requested her to quit wearing masks. A person commented on Reddit that the ensemble reminded them of Kim's "Peter Pan shadow costume," referring to her 2021 MET Gala look, calling it "underwhelming and boring". Kim Kardashian had made quite the statement at the fashion gala in 2021 by covering up entirely, wearing jersey gloves, Pantaleggings, Jersey boots, a dress that was elongated at the end and a black curve T-shirt underneath. To complete the look, she had also worn a black mask that covered her entire face, including her hair.

Kim had defended her fashion decision for the Met outfit back then after receiving lots of criticism on social media. On Instagram, she posted a tonne of pictures of the costume as well as the behind-the-scene pictures of her makeup crew. "What's more American than a T-shirt head to toe?" she captioned her photo in reference to the Met Gala's "American independence" theme. Kim also posted a blog article by Filipino fashion blogger Bryanboy that praised her ensemble as "absolute perfection". It seems Kim is far from tired from the "masked look," showing up at the highly publicized Balenciaga event in a similar costume — only this time, she left her blonde locks lose and on view. It wasn't only her outfit that drew criticism — her detractors also panned her "boring" runway walk at the Balenciaga fashion show in Paris.


Along with other personalities like Bella Hadid, Nicole Kidman and Dua Lipa, Kim strutted the runway for Balenciaga's Haute Couture presentation. She made her Paris Fashion Week debut as a model for Balenciaga's 51st couture collection. She modelled one of the designers of Demna's most recent stylings. She was criticised for having the least fascinating appearance and having a 'dead gaze'.


A critic wrote on Reddit, "This reminds me of like American Horror Story." Another one commented, "I can't handle this s**t anymore. Please make it stop." Yet another posted: "Well... at least it's on theme, giving me flashbacks to that creepy AF Balenciaga show."

Kim recently revealed that she has shed 21 pounds overall in recent months. On the 2022 MET Gala red carpet, she claimed to have lost 16 pounds in three weeks to fit into Marilyn Monroe's famous dress but was subsequently criticized for promoting unhealthy weight loss goals. "I tried [the dress] on and it didn't fit me. I said, 'Give me three weeks'," the SKIMS founder said to Vogue in an interview on the red carpet. I had to lose 16 pounds down today. It was such a challenge. It was like a [movie] role. I was determined to fit [into] it. I haven't had carbs or sugar in about three weeks." she added.

Kim acknowledged late last month that following an extremely rigorous diet had caused her to lose considerably more weight since. She told The Today Show that dieting taught her a lot about her lifestyle and health. Ever since she has been eating healthy. She said, "I mean, I'm down 21 pounds now. I'm not trying to lose any more weight, but I have more energy than ever."
