Kim Kardashian wears Marilyn Monroe dress with Pete Davidson by her side
The couple known as “Kete” – until we can come up with something better? – stepped out for their second red carpet together, where the theme was “In America: An Anthology of Fashion” and the red carpet was all about Gilded Glamour.
The Met Gala’s exclusivity is outdated. How can fashion embrace inclusivity’s cutting edge?
The reality star, 41, and the “Saturday Night Live” star, 28, looked so loved up as they hit the iconic stairs at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Kardashian wore a blonde hairstyle to fully encapsulate her iconic Marilyn Monroe look – and leaned on Davidson (dapper in Dior Men) to help her move around in the tight-fitting dress.
Fans previously suspected the “Kardashians” star would be wearing the gown Monroe famously wore to sing “Happy Birthday, Mr. President” to John F. Kennedy in 1962 after the Skim founder was seen visiting Ripley’s Believe It or Not! in Orlando, Fla., last week.
The theme this year is “In America: An Anthology of Fashion” — following last year’s “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion” — and the dress code called for “gilded glamour,” according to Vogue.
The mother of four always makes a statement at the Met Gala.
She wore a head-to-toe look by Balanceiga that completely concealed her identity in 2021, a “dripping wet” corset by Thierry Mugler that cinched her waist in 2019 and a meme-worthy floral maternity dress by Givenchy at her first-ever Met Gala in 2013 with then-husband Kanye West.
Davidson, for his part, also snagged headlines when he opted to wear a dress for his Met Gala debut in 2021. The gender-bending look by Thom Browne included a simple black dress underneath a long white jacket, paired with a bow tie and combat boots.
“If you’re gonna wear a dress, what better way or place to do it than the Met, you know?” the comedian previously quipped. “I’m really excited and really stoked that they thought I could pull this off, which is hilarious.”
Kardashian and Davidson chose the White House Correspondent’s dinner on Saturday to make their official red carpet debut.
However, the Met Gala has been the choice star-studded fête for several others celebrity couples to walk a carpet together for the first time together.
A$AP Rocky and Rihanna also cemented themselves as an item during fashion’s biggest night in 2021, and Elon Musk and Grimes — who are now broken up — walked the red carpet together for the first time at the 2018 gala.
Kardashian and Davidson’s official debut comes nearly a month after they almost hit the carpet together at the premiere of Hulu’s “The Kardashians.”
