    So, you DEFINITELY saw Miss Kimberly Noel Kardashian's Met Gala look last night — it was, indubitably, a slay.

    For this year's theme of "Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty," Kim wore a tan corset literally DRENCHED in pearls to honor the late (and lest we forget, extremely problematic) designer.

    When asked about the inspo behind her look on the Vogue red carpet livestream, Kim said: "I thought, What is more Karl? You know, the iconic Chanel pearls is what I always thought of. So we wanted to just be dripping in pearls."
