Watch: Kim Kardashian explains Met Gala look

Kim Kardashian's latest Met Gala outfit sure sparked a lot of conversation, but we have to admit, we didn't expect the head-to-toe black ensemble to spark a slew of copycat looks.

However, searches for balaclavas on global fashion search site Lyst jumped by 62% within 48 hours of Kardashian walking the red carpet in her Balenciaga outfit on 13 September. 

This appears no fleeting trend, as currently global searches for balaclavas on Lyst are up 45% week-on-week.

Perhaps one of the most appealing elements of Kardashian's outfit is that it's relatively simple to recreate, as you can source black bodysuits on Amazon for less than £20.

Plus, the timing could not be better – as even if you're not brave enough to wear the look day-to-day, it would make a simple, yet effective, Halloween costume.

Come 31 October, we expect to see parties filled with faceless ladies in black.
