    “To be honest, I decided really last minute I wasn’t gonna go," Kylie explained, before revealing that the reason she changed her mind was to properly honor Virgil.

    "I was like, ‘Unless I can go and honor Virgil [Abloh],' and [his wife] Shannon would want me to go, and I would wear Off-White, then that’s the only reason I would go today. To honor him.”

    Kylie explained that the reasoning behind her look was to "do something big." " Every year I’ve worn some type of tight mermaid dress, so this year I wanted to just wear something big, do something different," she said.

    “I feel like I was supposed to go with Off-White because Virgil and I talked about this for the last two years," she also said. "I was supposed to go with him in 2020, so it feels right that my Met comeback I’m going with Off-White for sure."

    Kylie also explained that the look mattered so much to her personally that she didn't care what people would think of it.

    “It also puts off the pressure of what people think about my look because I love it so much. It’s so much more special to me that I don’t care what people think. It’s very special.”
