Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson have finally given their fans what they’ve wanted and celebrated their Met Gala appearance as a couple.

On Monday night the newly-blonde fashion mogul walked alongside her comedian boyfriend on the star-studded red carpet wearing a vintage gold Bob Mackie dress, previously worn by Marilyn Monroe and styled with a white shawl and black tuxedo, respectively.

The occasion marked the couple's second red carpet appearance following the 2022 White House Correspondents' Association dinner earlier in the weekend, at which the mother-of-four worn a silver Balenciaga dress while her beau wore a black Prada suit and trainers.

The couple are believed to have begun dating in November 2021, a month after Kardashian hosted an episode of Saturday Night Live. Their pairing came months after the reality star had announced she and her husband of seven years Kanye West were splitting.

Opening up about the advice Davidson gave her prior to her SNL performance, Kardashian revealed on a recent episode of The Kardashians: ‘I ran into Pete Davidson at the Met and I was like, “I'm so scared, I don't know what I signed up for”.

‘He was like, “Can you read cue cards? You're good”. And I was like, “I can read”,’ she laughed.

On the Not Skinny But Not Fat podcast, the mother-of-four said that the SNL performer tried to give her his number at last year’s Met Gala, in case she needed help with preparing for her hosting gig, but she was unable to get her phone because of her gloves.

‘I was like, “Oh, I have gloves,” and he was like “alright, cool” and walked away. But I was gonna be like, “Oh, take mine!" But it was like, no. So we never connected or anything.’

The outfit unsurprisingly resulted in Kardashian’s look becoming a meme on the night, and even inspired singer Lizzo to recreate the ensemble for her Halloween costume.
