  • Kim Kardashian walked the red carpet in a faceless Balenciaga look at the 2021 Met Gala.
  • Alongside the reality star was a man in black sweatpants and a hoodie, slippers, with his face obscured as well.
  • Fans think the masked man could be Kanye West, following reconciliation rumours between the famous exes.

Kim Kardashian turned heads at the 2021 Met Gala when she showed up in an all-black, faceless look.

The outfit saw the reality star in a full-body get-up featuring a black face covering, catsuit, train and jersey boots; all that was exposed was her long ponytail.

Accompanying Kim was a man on her arm, in a matching black sweatpants and a hoodie, slippers, with his face obscured as well.

With his look reminiscent of ones Kanye West would wear, fans couldn't help but wonder if he'd walked the red carpet with his ex, after rumours the two are considering reconciling.

According to E! News, the masked man was none other than Demna Gvasalia, the creative director of Balenciaga, who designed Kim's iconic look.

Days before, the beauty mogul stepped out in a similar leather Balenciaga look, and did the same when she attended one of Kanye's Donda listening parties.

A source tells E! Kanye's "presence will be felt on the carpet". "It was him who introduced Kim to Demna and was instrumental in the newly formed relationship between her and Balenciaga."

Of Kim's new fashion era, they add: "This look on Kim is like a new subculture and fashion statement. No logo, no face, but everyone knows it's her."
