Kris Jenner Channels Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis at Met Gala
The Met Gala themes always create iconic looks, serving as a chance for celebs to bring out the best of their whacky wardrobe and design ideas.
Of course, the 2022 theme was Gilded Glamor, leaving everyone expecting royally impressive looks pulled from the 1870 and 1890 New York era.

The period saw a surge in industrialization, followed by wealth and prosperity. We expected some real gilded age fashion, from jewel tones and feathers to corsets and satin.
Of course, some of our celebrities absolutely served, while others didn’t seem to hit the nail on the head, but all looked phenomenal.
One red carpet look has divided people as the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star Kris Jenner strolled in. The famous mum donned a silk pale yellow Oscar de la Renta dress, with an asymmetrical shoulder line, complete with long white gloves – a fashion staple of the elegant.
This look, along with her weave to give her bob length hair, gave a striking similarity to Jackie Kennedy.

The former first lady, writer, photographer, and so much more, while a wonderful woman with inspiration-worthy fashion sense, is close to a century too late to the party to be gilded glamour, with her time in the role of the first lady lasting from 1961 to 1963.
Jenner’s look was stunning but has certainly left fans divided. Some agree that the look is stunning and love the energy being brought from Jackie Kennedy, others feel she’s strayed a little too far from the theme.

Whether you love the look or think she’s missed the mark, she certainly looked fabulous.
In March 2016, the momager was back at it again with the fur coats. The fashionista and mom-of-six moved her sleek signature style to Europe for Paris Fashion Week, where she seemed to prefer bundling up in an extra layer of fur.
Following the success of her talented model daughter Kendall, Kris had an extra glow about her as she attended the various fashion house shows that Kendall walked in.
Each show was literally dripping with high-fashion celebs. The then 60-year-old Kardashian matriarch managed to steal some spotlight for her signature chic and furry ensembles. Which one of these fur fashions do you like best?
1. Furrrst Up: Brown for the Balmain Show
On the way to the Balmain show to watch Kendall strut her stuff, Kris stepped away from her signature modest black style to take on a rather sexy gold and brown display.
Perhaps inspired by her daughter Kim’s fashion choices, Kris opted for a gold mini dress that hugged her figure and showed off her legs and cleavage.

Proving age is just a number, this mama looked confident as she hid from the Parisian chill under a large brown fur coat.
Despite the minimal coverage of her dress, this oversized coat seemed to keep her warm enough. Her sparkling long-sleeve embellished dress is from Balmain, and it features a plunging neckline, stretch fabric, and the label’s signature padded shoulders.

She styled the daring display further by hiding her eyes behind a pair of mirrored aviators and wore neutral-toned makeup and dark eyeliner.
The momager chose a nude pair of Gianvito Rossi ‘Portofino’ sandals for her feet. Available at Nordstrom, these classic shoes feature calf leather, high ankle straps with circular buckles, toe straps, and about 4-inch heels.

2. Then, It Was Back to Black for Dior
The next day, for the Dior show, Kris was back to black and mirroring the fashions that dominated the French fashion house’s runway.

Kris received some inside style tips from Kendall, who wore a similar-looking long black coat with a fur collar while on the catwalk.
Brimming with pride, the supportive mom looked chic in a tight black dress covered by a calf-length, fur-collared coat and thigh-high boots.

Adding a touch of Dior flair, Kris sported bold sunnies and a silver clutch from the luxury clothing brand. Her tall black suede boots completed her sleek ensemble.
We’re not 100% sure, but we think this pair is the Saint Laurent thigh-high cat suede boots you can buy at Mytheresa. These classic beauties feature suede uppers with leather soles, pointed toes, and 3.5-inch heels.

3. Next Up: Hand Muffs for Chanel
Continuing her fur frenzy but altering the pace, Kris stepped out for the Chanel show in a black wool pea coat and a fur-lined hand warmer.
Draped around her neck, the gold-chained white and black furry hand muff was glaringly Chanel’s, as indicated by the bold brand name emblazoned across the front.

The rest of her ensemble was kept more subtle with a biker chick edge. She chose plain black sunglasses for the look and wore a sleek pair of black leggings tucked into some classic combat boots.

These Chanel closet staples feature laces up the front with zips and buckles at the sides. Unfortunately, this exact pair is currently sold out.
4. And Finally, Full-On Kim K. for Luis Vuitton
For the Louis Vuitton show, Kris turned to a fur coat that could have easily come from Kim’s collection. Oversized to the point of looking like a giant blanket, this gray-and-brown tinged coat certainly kept Kris warm.

Beneath her coat, she wore quite an age-appropriate pair of tailored black dress pants and a classy pair of black boots. Kris also sported a pair of chic sunnies and carried a colorful clutch, adding some extra glam.
