Last year, Khloé Kardashian was rumoured to have been banned from the Met Gala. At the time, when a fan asked for clarity about the rumoured ban, the Good American co-founder replied on Twitter: 'Absolutely NOT True.'

On Monday night, the 37-year-old put speculation regarding her Met Gala invite status firmly to bed when she took to the red carpet at the annual fashion calendar event, where the theme for this year was 'In America: An Anthology of Fashion'.

While her sisters Kim Kardashian and Kendall and Kylie Jenner have made appearances at the star-studded event on numerous occasions over the years, this year marked the mother-of-one's Met Gala debut.

During the event, Kardashian admitted that she found the experience 'so scary'. As per People, she said: 'It's so scary but it's fabulous and I'm so excited to be here.

'I'm so excited that we're all here together. I just had to be a part of this experience. It's something I have always wanted to do. I need a glass of champagne.'

The The Kardashians star was joined by sisters Kim, Kourtney (the latter of whom also made her Met Gala debut for 2022) as well as Kylie, Kendall and 'momager' Kris Jenner.

Adhering to the 'Gilded Glamour and White Tie' dress code, Khloé graced the famous steps at the Metropolitan Museum of Art dressed in a glittering gold Moschino dress. The svelte silhouette of the design hugged her figure and swept the floor.

She completed her look with exaggerated, ruffled black opera gloves.

As for her hair: slick and straight, emphasising her gleaming outfit.

Discussing her outfit, Kardashian revealed: 'We did it in like 10 days. [Moschino creative director ]Jeremy [Scott] I love you. It's fab.'

Fans have since reacted to Kardashian's debut look at the event, with some deeming it to be 'boring', however a supportive fan wrote: 'Now this is a dress Khloe!'

The Met Gala 2022 dress code was about embracing the grandeur of Gilded Age New York between 1870 to 1890.

It followed on from last year's 'In America: A Lexicon of Fashion' theme, which was postponed from May to September amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Last year, Kim Kardashian was mocked for her all-black Balenciaga Met Gala look, with some comparing her to a Harry Potter Dementor and others insisting she didn't abide by the dress code.

As the occasion is a chance to break the boundaries of fashion and design, we can't help but love the statement she made. And nor can Kim herself, if her response to the criticism is anything to go by.

She later wrote on Instagram: 'What’s more American than a T-shirt head to toe?!’
