Daily Mail reported that she came solo to the event, opting to leave behind her controversial husband, Kanye West. The Gala was held on May 6, 2018.

Kim Kardashian-West, 37, showed off her assets at the Monday event. She gave her own interpretation to the event’s theme titled Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination.

The star chose to wear a busty gown for the night. Crucifixes were sewn into the skin-tight Versace gold dress that sparkled as the star posed for pictures on the red carpet.

Her husband, Kanye West, was nowhere to be seen as he was still riding the wave of his controversial tweets about supporting President Donald Trump and slavery. Kanye’s usually her Met Gala date.

His absence didn’t stop Kim from making the most of the evening as she smiled for the cameras. To add to her look, the star had a cascading ponytail that reached her waist.

‘I've been prepping for this year's with a cleanse and by working out really hard. I'm so excited to go!'
