James Devaney/GC ImagesMonday night, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian were crowned the Best-Dressed Couple by VOGUE magazine at the MET Gala in New York — and in true Kanye fashion, he went on Twitter to accept the prestigious honor.
Kanye expressed his gratitude, writing, “I’m really excited to get our first best dressed at the met. This Gala is like the Grammys of style!”
The couple, who followed the “Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology” theme for the night, wore complimentary outfits, with Kim in an armour-like corseted dress and Ye in an intricate silver jacket, white T-shirt, ripped jeans and ice-blue-colored contacts.
The Good Music rapper also thanked VOGUE‘s U.S. editor-in-chief and event chair, Anna Wintour, and those involved in creating the couple’s metallic-themed look for the night.
“Thank you Anna for the invite thank you to the whole Vogue team,” he tweeted. “Thank you to Olivier [Rousteing, Balmain creative director] for making four dresses for Kim to choose from which we chopped 2 in half. And thank you for turning my personal jean jacket into a couture piece.”
Remembering to mention the entire glam squad, Kanye added: “Also to Kim’s hair and make-up, Lorraine [Schwartz] jewellery and the whole style squad at Balmain and the Yeezy team. We just had fun with the ‘future’ theme!!! It was a fun night altogether…,” he finished.
