It was nice that Kim Kardashian wore a print for a change Monday night, but she might have gone too far.
The Costume Institute Gala for the "Punk: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City gave celebrities some freedom to be more outlandish than usual with the “punk” theme — but some of Hollywood’s best didn’t take advantage of the theme in the most fashionable manner.
Take pregnant reality star Kardashian for instance: The normally monochromatic fashionista wore a matching Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci dress and shoes with attached matching gloves and floral turtleneck. Her choices Monday night have landed her on numerous “worst dressed” lists.
It’s safe to say that no one expected the 32-year-old star to wear this overly matched ensemble, especially since she's been widely criticized because of the pregnancy weight she's gained. In the last season of her reality show Kardashian also said she was feeling extra pressure to look good considering all her fashion faux pas were being blamed on boyfriend Kanye West.

She hasn’t said who might have suggested the Givenchy sleeve-glove outfit, but the mom-to-be was likely the only celeb to be wearing attached gloves.

Before the event, she told Vogue.com she was looking forward to the New York City gala.
"I love fashion and I really am excited to see everyone's take on punk," Kardashian told Vogue.com about this year's theme of "Punk: Chaos to Couture." "I know it's different for everybody. ... Everyone has their own take on it, so it will be really interesting to me to see what the designers and everyone else thinks about punk."
"I think mine and Riccardo's version of punk for me is probably not the mohawk typical punk that you would really envision," she added.
