Kim Kardashian knows how she got where she is — no, not that one thing, but by letting her fans in on every single detail of her life. She went one step further when it came time to accompany husband Kanye West to the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday night. She let those fans choose her outfit via Twitter poll.

First, she asked whether she should wear her hair in its natural dark color, or the blonde she was sporting just Friday. The votes (all 36,806 of them) were close, but dark won out by 51 to 49 percent. Snarkier viewers might wonder if she closed the polls a little late and had to run out to the white carpet before blow-drying. In actuality, that purposeful almost-wet look was the perfectly slinky ‘do for her dress. That, too, was the result of a poll.

“OK I will take a poll, what should I wear tonight?” she asked. With 33,113 votes cast in this one, “dressy sexy look” won with 52 percent over “casual chill look.” The ruched cotton dress with an interesting draw-string detail was sexy, without a doubt, but it was kind of somewhere between dressy and boudoir, since you asked, Kim. But never mind, this is the VMAs we’re talking about. Anything that remotely resembles clothing can count as “dressy.”
