Who is Demna Gvasalia walking the red carpet with Kim Kardashian?

When Kim Kardashian appeared on the red carpet at this year’s Met Gala, everyone wanted to know who was the mystery man with Kim Kardashian. After all, they were both covered head-to-toe in black Balenciaga, a fashion brand.

Netizens assumed it was rapper Kanye West who graced the red carpet with her at previous galas when they were a couple. Some people zoomed in to see if the features matched those of the rapper, as the look was too vague for their liking.

And then there was the fact that Kim was wearing a full-bodied black nylon bodysuit, another Balenciaga, listening to Kanye’s second Donda event a while back. He was also seen wearing a similar black outfit, and in fact, his face mask was almost identical.

While it was natural for people to assume they were once again in keeping with tradition, sadly, it wasn’t Kanye. Reality TV star Kim Kardashian, who shares four children with the rapper, confirmed this in an Instagram post, revealing her secret Plus One identity: It’s Balenciaga creative director Demna Gvasalia.

Interestingly, the founder of SKIMS was introduced to Gvasalia through Kanye. W magazine In the report, Kanye enlisted Gvasalia for creative input for the Donda event, including designing an exclusive suit for Kardashian.
