Leslie Jordan jokingly asked fans "who wore it better" after he recently recreated Kim Kardashian's statement-making look from the 2021 Met Gala.

Kardashian, 40, stole the show at the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute Benefit Monday when she arrived wearing a black Balenciaga bodysuit that covered her from head to toe, including her face.

The 66-year-old actor apparently got a kick from the "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" star's outfit and decided to recreate the look at home by putting his underwear over his head. 

"Who wore it better? Clean underwear equals fashion brilliance!!! @kimkardashian," Jordan wrote alongside side-by-side photos of Kardashian's outfit and his hilarious version of it on Instagram.

Jordan's post got a slew of likes and comments from fans and fellow stars, with many praising his outfit.

"If I get summoned for jury duty, that’s my outfit," Tim Hanseroth commented.

"You wore it best gurl," "Queer Eye's" Bobby Berk wrote with a fire emoji. "Nailed it!" Lindsay Holiday commented.

"You, honey, you!! Now open up that fly and breathe… Y’all are making me claustrophobic," Linda Thompson wrote with rolling on the floor laughing emojis.

Jordan shared more details about his hilarious post when he spoke with Entertainment Tonight Friday.

"I had my underpants. I had a pair of gray underpants that looked like that same color and I put those on and I put the gray sweats," he told the outlet of how he recreated Kardashian's look. "So I put together my own little outfit."

Jordan, who hasn't attended the Met Gala, had some questions about the event, including what people do and whether the gathering is like the usual party.

"What I wonder is if they had all of that on and they get in, is it an actual party? I mean is it a party, party? Like, if we have a train that is as big as this studio, what do you do? Just sit there?" he asked ET.

But while he may have had fun recreating Kardashian's Balenciaga outfit, the "Call Me Kat" star revealed that he is more "conservative" when it comes to choosing his outfits nowadays.

"All of my clothes come from Brooks Brothers. When I was young I would get clothes, I had a company I went to called Loud Mouth that had all of this bright stuff," he shared. "I am getting more and more and more conservative. I am 66 and I don't want to look like a fool!"

Meanwhile, Kardashian recently subtly addressed her bizarre Met Gala outfit, which some fans believed was inspired by her estranged husband Kanye West's album "Donda." The reality star shared various insights into her outfit on her Instagram Story.

She shared a Vogue article that noted how she "rewrote the red carpet's rules." "Completely obscuring her features and famous physique, the look gave the reality star something she hasn’t had in a long while: anonymity," the outlet's senior fashion and culture editor Janelle Okwodu wrote.

Kardashian also reposted Diet Prada's Instagram Story about fame and anonymity, which read: "When you’re so famous you can literally make ‘anonymous,’ your new look. Say what you want about her new direction, but it’s definitely not boring."
