She hit the Met Gala red carpet hours earlier in a custom Thierry Mugler creation – and Kim Kardashian decided to go for a very different look for the after party in New York City on Monday night alongside her famous sisters.
38-year-old reality star Kim, looked like a living doll in a latex blue mini dress with matching boots and a silver fringed wig for hers and Serena Williams’ post-gala bash, which was held at Up And Down.
Her sister Kendall Jenner, 23, wore a cartoon strip white and black mini suit which appeared to hark back from the 80s in design, with black heels and carrying a silver disco themed bag.
Statement: While Kim pulled out all the stops, her husband Kanye West was decidedly low-key in his mechanic style jacket and trousers
Kylie Jenner, 21, channelled Kim as she slipped into a green wig and wore a glittering mermaid-style green dress which had cut-out sections, worn with perspex heels.
Mother of three Kim’s outrageous look comes after she went on a strict diet before the annual event, which she had chronicled on her Instagram.
Hours earlier, Kim arrived to the 2019 Met Gala in a stunning caramel colored gown that accentuated her hourglass figure – a Thierry Mugler creation.
The KKW Beauty founder dazzled on the red carpet at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City while posing with husband Kanye West.

Kim added that the look was ‘eight months in the making.’
The entrepreneur said to the E! reporter: ‘This is the first time in 20 years Mr. Mugler has designed for the House of Mugler,’ calling it an ‘honor’ for him to design it for her.

Also at the Met Gala afterparty was supermodel Winnie Harlow, 24, who wore head-to-toe leopard print. She went braless underneath the sheer ensemble and flashed a small pair of white briefs and wore a blonde wig.
Winnie added further drama to her look with a pair of thigh-high boots which were studded and she completed her look with a matching corset which cinched her in at the waist.
Bella Hadid, 22, wore a sheer two-piece which had a tattoo print on it – she flashed her underwear as she span around to go inside the venue to party.

Meanwhile, The Met Gala is the annual fundraiser for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute and is the most glittery and exclusive event on the New York fashion calendar.
It is famous for attracting luminaries of Hollywood, of fashion, music, sports, TV and the stage for an evening of fashion and charity to mark the museum’s spring exhibit.

This year, the exhibit and gala are dedicated to the idea of ‘camp,’ as defined by Susan Sontag’s 1964 essay Notes on ‘Camp.’
‘Fashion is the most overt and enduring conduit of the camp aesthetic,’ said Andrew Bolton, curator in charge of the Costume Institute and creator of its blockbuster shows. Bolton said the 2019 show would ‘advance creative and critical dialogue about the ongoing and ever-evolving impact of camp on fashion.’
The exhibit will feature approximately 175 objects, not only clothing but also sculptures, paintings, and drawings.
Designers to be featured in the show include: Cristóbal Balenciaga, Thom Browne, Gucci, Marc Jacobs, Charles James, Christian Lacroix, Karl Lagerfeld, Prada, Versace and many more.
The Camp: Notes on Fashion exhibit will run from May 9 through Sept. 8.

Met Gala 2019 theme: So what does ‘Notes on Camp’ mean…?

So what exactly is ‘camp’?
The museum’s exhibition is based on ‘Notes on Camp,’ an essay written in 1964 by American author Susan Sontag.
‘Camp is by nature subversive (…) confronting and challenging the status quo,’ the Costume Institute’s head curator Andrew Bolton said Monday at a press event about the exhibition before the gala.
‘In the end, the purpose of camp is to put a smile on our faces and a warm glow in our hearts.’
Some of the items in the exhibition might best explain the theme: the ‘swan dress’ worn by Bjork to the Oscars, a glittering costume worn by flamboyant US singer Liberace, a shower head necklace designed by the late Karl Lagerfeld for Chloe in the 1980s.
‘We’re experiencing a resurgence of camp — not just in fashion, but in culture in general,’ said Bolton.
‘Camp tends to come to the fore in moments of social and political instability. The 1960s was one such moment as were the 1980s.’
The exhibition ‘Camp: Notes on Fashion’ — a play on the title of Sontag’s essay — formally opens at the Met on Thursday and runs through September 8.
