Kanye West's bizarre look, bad attitude at Met Gala 2016

By Alison Stephenson

Kanye West brought peak attitude to the Met Gala today, refusing to engage with reporters or answer any questions about his bizarre blue-eyed appearance.

A moody Kanye, sporting blue contacts that matched his ripped light denim jeans, offered just a one word answer when asked about the look.

"Loving the eyes, is that part of the look or just something you wanted to do tonight?" asked an E! News reporter.

West's response? "Vibes," he said before exiting the interview and dragging his wife with him.

Kardashian was more chatty on the night, telling E! News in the same interview that designer Balmain was the "perfect choice" for the duo and that she wanted a "silver theme".

"Kanye's look is more downplayed with the denim, mixed with the Balmain bling, I just really wanted to go for it and be a blingy sexy robot," she said.

The 34-year-old added that her daughter North, who is almost three, was obsessed with her dress.

"Leaving the house, my daughter was like 'Mummy, I need that dress' and I was like, 'as soon as we get home it's all yours, you can wear it to prom, whatever you want to do with it'."

Another main attraction of the evening was Taylor Swift who pulled off an edgy, futuristic metallic gown at the Met Gala, in a look that has never been seen before on the star and divided her fans.

Still rocking her new bleached-blonde bob, the singer opted for a short, silver, snakeskin dress with side cutouts.

She paired the look with strappy, knee-high heels and a super dark red lip, giving the look a gothic feel.

While it might be a bold departure from her usually feminine, sultry look, the ensemble was totally on-point for the gala's Manus x Machina: Fashion in the Age of Technology theme.

Her look certainly got tongues wagging on the web.

"@taylorswift13 we need to have a talk, you went to the MET GALA in this?," Kenzie wrote on Twitter.

"Taylor Swift looks like a hot ass mess at the met gala," Tom Griffiths wrote.

"Taylor Swift at the Met Gala - suddenly I'm blind," Ari wrote.

But not everyone was disparaging of the outfit.

Liyana Hanim pointed out Swift's outfit was fitting for the theme of this year's gala.

"Wow Taylor Swift's look at d Met Gala today! The theme this yr is Manus x Machina:Fashion in an Age of Technology.????," Hanim tweeted.

Swift's friend Lorde also set tongues wagging, sporting what appeared to be a cast on her left arm.

Swift is co-chairing the event alongside actor Idris Elba, Apple's chief design officer Jonathan Ive and Vogue magazine editor-in-chief Anna Wintour.

The Met Gala, formally called the Costume Institute Gala and also known as the Met Ball, is an annual fundraising gala for the benefit of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute in New York City.

Her best friend Selena Gomez revealed the pair would be attending the event together.

"It's gonna be the best," the 23-year-old told Access Hollywood.

"It's so fun. It's kinda like prom for fashion ... I love going and I love going because everyone feels great." However, Gomez refused to name the designers she or Swift will be wearing to the fundraising gala, which benefits the Met's Costume Institute.

"I don't want to get in trouble," she said with a grin.
