Just hours after they were handed a win in Blac Chyna’s defamation lawsuit trial, the Kardashians presented a united front on the 2022 Met Gala red carpet, the first time all six of the most famous Kardashian-Jenner women attended fashion’s biggest night together.
A Los Angeles jury found on Monday that none of the members of the famous family defamed former reality TV star Chyna, nor did any interfere with her contract by convincing the E! network to cancel her reality show “Rob & Chyna.”
“We’re all here at the Met,” Kourtney Kardashian said in a video shared to Vogue’s social media, surrounded by her fiancé and sisters (save for Kim Kardashian, who arrived last with boyfriend Pete Davidson).
Here are the details on the Kardashian-Jenner family’s looks.

Kim Kardashian wears Marilyn Monroe dress with Pete Davidson by her side
Two days after making their red carpet debut as a couple at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, Kim Kardashian and Davidson were back at it.
The couple known as “Kete” – until we can come up with something better? – stepped out for their second red carpet together, where the theme was “In America: An Anthology of Fashion” and the red carpet was all about Gilded Glamour.
The Met Gala’s exclusivity is outdated. How can fashion embrace inclusivity’s cutting edge?
Kim borrowed the original skin-tight, sparkling Bob Mackie dress that Marilyn Monroe wore to sing “Happy Birthday” to President John F. Kennedy, nearly 60 years to the day after the iconic actress first did.
The figure-hugging nude dress, which contains more than 2,500 handstitched crystals, was sold at auction to Ripley’s Believe It or Not for nearly $5 million in 2016. The reality TV star and entrepreneur told Vogue that she had to lose 16 pounds to fit into the dress.
Kim also went with a bleach blonde bun for the occasion, just two days after showing off flowing, dark hair at the Correspondents’ Dinner.
According to Vogue, Kardashian wore the dress for a few minutes before changing into a replica, so as not to damage the original.
“I had this idea to put it on and try it on and then they came with like, armed guards and gloves and I tried it on and it didn’t fit me,” she told pal La La Anthony on the red carpet. “I had three weeks and I had to lose 16 pounds… It was like a role. I was determined to fit into it. I don’t think they believed I was going to do it, but I did it.”

Davidson went with a plain black tux and signature red carpet sunglasses with custom Or & Elle cufflinks. “(Kim) didn’t let me wear my propeller hat, but it’s fine,” the comedian lamented.
Kim Kardashian has attended every Met Gala since 2013, often with ex-husband Ye, formerly known as Kanye West. The rapper, who has made his distaste for his ex-wife’s new boyfriend well-known, was not in attendance Monday night.

Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker rock coordinating outfits
Kete wasn’t the only Kardashian couple to turn fashion’s biggest evening into date night.
Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker, whose engagement was recently documented on the famous family’s new reality show “The Kardashians,” stepped out – for the first time either of them have attended the Met – in coordinating outfits.
Each put a spin on a Thom Browne white button-down shirt and black skirt: Kourtney Kardashian wore a cropped shirt with a cream bodycon skirt underneath a more flowing black fabric; Barker added fashion-forward details such as sunglasses, oversized cuffs and a black kilt to a classic black tuxedo. Kardashian said she “didn’t really think about” the theme, but that her look was a “deconstructed version” of Barker’s.
What purpose does a new ‘Kardashians’ show serve in 2022? More than you’d think.
Khloé Kardashian goes sheer, Kendall goes big and Kylie Jenner honors Virgil Abloh
Khloé Kardashian also made her Met Gala debut Monday night, wearing a sheer golden beaded fringe number by Moschino, complete with Lorraine Schwartz jewelry, a black satin shawl, extended gloves and golden shades. The gown featured 540,000 glass beads, hand sewn onto silk tulle.
“I’m so excited that we’re all here together,” Khloé Kardashian said of her family.
Kendall Jenner, meanwhile, wore head-to-toe Prada: a sheer dark tank top over an enormous ruffled black skirt and heels hidden underneath, complete with bleached eyebrows, a dramatic smokey eye and Lorraine Schwartz earrings.
Kylie Jenner looked decidedly bridal in a white gown by Off-White and veil (attached to a backwards white baseball cap), though she was sans partner Travis Scott.
The look was a tribute to the late fashion designer Virgil Abloh, the founder and CEO of fashion house Off-White, who died in November after a battle with cancer.
“Virgil and I were supposed to go to the Met together before it got postponed in 2020, to celebrate V tonight and his incredible legacy truly means the world to me,” Jenner shared on Instagram.
She added: “I’m humbled to wear this dress and honor my talented beautiful friend.”
