When Kim Kardashian stepped out on the 2021 Met Gala red carpet wearing a head-to-toe black Balenciaga outfit covering even her face, it was only a matter of time before the internet decided to get a little creative with the memes. In fact, Kim's look has caused such a stir that the star was even trending on Twitter after stepping out at the event.

To be completely honest with you, I'd be lying if we said that Met Gala memes aren't one of my all-time favourite things. Yup, the event's outlandish fashion, supremely extra themes and star-studded guest list makes it the perfect storm for Twitter goodness. But before we get into the best reactions, let's first take a quick look at Kim's bodysuit in full:

Now, you'd be forgiven for not realising it was actually Kim under that hood but believe us when we say that we're at least 90% sure it's her.

Is that Kanye with her? Who knows.

ALSO, is anyone else wondering how she even sees where she's walking when her eyes are completely covered? And the stairs!

I hope she's got a trusty assistant helping her along that red carpet otherwise this could be a total nightmare.

The fact that Kim wore a very similar look (also by Balenciaga) on the weekend means that she must be realllly loving the bodysuit and hood combo at the moment, so props for consistency at least?

Now, on to the social media side of things. It wasn't long before Twitter took Kim's outfit and started making a load of pop culture references, with quite a few comparing the head-to-toe masked black look to the Dementors in Harry Potter.

Here are the best Twitter reactions to Kim Kardashian's 2021 Met Gala outfit:

"Every year I forget how much I love the #MetGala... and then the celebrities start showing up looking like the dementors from Harry Potter"

"me having arguments with no one alone in my room #MetGala"

"Kim K showing up in my Sims backyard after I took the ladder out of the pool"

"omg did y’all know kim k was in harry potter"

"Kim K and Kanye need to get away from us with this. No m’am, Expecto Patronun, b*tch #MetGala"


"kim k dressed up as a dementor from harry potter wig #metgala"

"kim k really showed up at the met gala looking like she’s ready to suck the soul out of the prisoner of azkaban."

"is kim k really going to the met gala as a dementor"

Ah yes, how we love a brave red carpet look, and a Twitter joke that's taken on a life of its own.

Now, if you excuse me, I'm gonna check to see if Kim shows her face at this awards show at all. If not, it's entirely possible she skipped makeup altogether, making for a super swift exit and 'jump straight into bed' strategy. Actually, maybe Kim's onto something...?
