Wilson was not in attendance at the swanky Gotham event Monday, as on Sunday he had led his team to a win in Indianapolis over the Colts in the Seahawks’ regular season opener.

Ciara and Wilson are parents to daughter, Sienna, four, son Win Harrison, one, and son Future Zahir, seven, who Ciara shares with rapper Future.

The annual event finally returned after being cancelled in 2020 amid the COVID-19 pandemic. This year, it was pushed to September from its traditional slot in May.

Monday’s event featured a heavy-hitting contingent of celebrity co-chairs: actor Timothée Chalamet, musician Billie Eilish, poet Amanda Gorman and tennis star Naomi Osaka. Honorary chairs for the evening will be designer Tom Ford, sponsor Instagram’s Adam Mosseri, and Vogue’s Anna Wintour.

KIM KARDASHIAN’S MET GALA LOOKS OVER THE YEARS

Kim Kardashian has never disappointed when hitting the annual Met Gala in New York City. Here is a look back at the styles the Keeping Up With The Kardashians vet has pulled off.

 

2013  – GIVENCHY

Her first time at the Met Gala was for PUNK: Chaos to Couture in 2013. She was pregnant with North and wore a floral print dress from Givenchy. 

The California native said that she was not invited but rather was West’s plus one. Sadly, after the gala she ‘cried’ because she was so insecure about everything.

‘2103 Riccardo Tisci for Givenchy. I was Kanye’s plus one & so nervous! I didn’t know anyone & I’m sure no one wanted me there lol. I did my own lipstick & the color is so off. I went home & cried after of insecurity but this is one of my fave looks now.’

2014  – LANVIN

In 2014, Kim had on a blue strapless Lanvin outfit as Kanye had on black. The theme was Charles James: Beyond Fashion.

She said it was the first time she had been invited on her own.

‘My dress was originally made of this amazing leather with metallic detailing,’ Kim said earlier. ‘But we decided at the last minute to redo it in blue satin.’

2016 – BALMAIN

Kardashian tried out silver at the Manus x Machina: Fashion In An Age Of Technology in 2016.  

She wore Balmain, a shimmery silver dress that looked like a futuristic gown with a slit up the side. Husband Kanye West was in the same designer.

She said: ‘2016 Olivier Rousteing for Balmain. I was back to insecure this year because I hadn’t lost all of my baby weight. Big mistake to bleach the brows but Kanye looked so good this year with those blue eyes! It was super controversial that he wore denim.’

Earlier she had noted: ‘I thought Balmain was the perfect choice for me and Kanye, especially. I think Kanye’s look is a little bit more downplayed with the denim mixed with all the Balmain bling.’

2017 – VIVIENNE WESTWOOD

This one in 2017 was celebrating the opening of Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garcons: Art of the In-Between. 

The Selfish author had on a white Vivienne Westwood off-the-shoulder dress with no jewelry and strappy heels.

 In the bus ride to the event she had to stand up so the dress would not wrinkle and she said she was already sweating and had to use the bathroom because she was so nervous.

The daughter of Kris Jenner said, ‘2017 Vivienne Westwood. This was my first year going solo. I was so nervous to go by myself I almost threw up on the way & I had to pee every second.. I was FaceTiming my sisters to meet up at the top of the stairs. Vivienne made me this beautiful dress from her archive.’

 2019 – THIERRY MUGLER

She had to wear a waist trainer to get her midsection as small as possible to pull off this Thierry Mugler dress.

The look was supposed to be ‘wet’ which is why she had crystals that looked like raindrops coming off of her.
