If you somehow missed the viral moment, Kardashian arrived at the Met Gala last Monday in a second-skin ensemble, featuring a gown, matching mask and long train that almost entirely concealed the reality star's identity, if not for her distinct silhouette. The provocative outfit is the latest development in Kardashian's sartorial evolution, as she begins to gravitate towards more conservative and monochromatic looks, not far off from her ex-husband Kanye West's minimalist style.

You can also recreate the Balenciaga gown using a tight long-sleeved bodysuit and maxi skirt, especially if you want pieces you can wear in a non-costume setting after Halloween.
This one-piece is made out of spandex for a tight and flexible fit and features a zippered back for easy changing. This full-body suit, which also features a face covering, is basically all you need to create Kardashian's skin-tight Met Gala look.
If you already have an all-black ensemble in your closet, you can add this simple face-covering to complete the costume.
People have been recreating Kim Kardashian's statement Met Gala looks ever since her first appearance on the star-studded steps in 2013. But unlike her ultra-tight Thierry Mugler gown of 2019 or her now-iconic Givenchy maternity dress years earlier, the all-black Balenciaga bodysuit she donned on this year's carpet is easier than ever to replicate for Halloween — even if it isn't haute couture.

In fact, you basically have a complete costume with this $25 dollar bodysuit from Amazon.
The look received mixed reactions online, with "Vogue" claiming that the innovative ensemble "rewrote red carpet rules," while others compared it to the Dementor from "Harry Potter." One photo, that shows a shadowed Kardashian standing next to Kendall Jenner in a jeweled Givenchy dress, became the meme of the night.
