American reality TV star and beauty mogul Kim Kardashian’s latest avatar was greeted with mixed reactions by onlookers.

Not an inch of her face or any of her body is being revealed in this bizarre outfit, that has been adorned by the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star. The outfit, an all-black one designed by Balenciaga creative director Demna Gvasalia, has attracted a lot of memers. And they did not waste a second to get back to business. The result? Several pages running riot on both Instagram and Twitter.

Many of the memes also compared her to Dementors, a villainous character from the fictional series Harry Potter.

Even Bollywood actress Kareena Kapoor Khan took to her Instagram Stories to share Kim Kardashian’s Met Gala 2021 look and wrote alongside it, “Kya ho raha hai (What is happening?).”

Even Kendall Jenner, Kardashian’s sister, was featured in the many memes that made their way to the internet.

The Met Gala was graced by many other celebrities. It works on an invitation only forum. While it usually takes place in May, it was postponed to now, because of the COVID-19 pandemic. This year’s event was hosted by actor Timothee Chalamet, Grammy winner Billie Eilish, tennis pro Naomi Osaka and poet Amanda Gorman.
