Kim Kardashian West has become a Met Gala red-carpet staple in recent years, and on Monday night she proved that her iconic looks don’t stop once the event is over.

Kardashian West attended an after-party at the Up & Down club in New York City wearing a head-turning colourful latex minidress.

Kardashian West’s shiny blue dress featured a plunging neckline and tons of shimmering tassels, and she paired it with a silver fringed wig. A pair of blue heels and fingerless gloves completed the look.

The theme of this year’s Met Gala was “Camp: Notes on Fashion,” inspired by Susan Sontag’s 1964 Partisan Review essay “Notes on ‘Camp,'” in which Sontag defined the concept as “playful” and “anti-serious.”

Kardashian West’s extravagant after-party look arguably fit the “playful” theme more than her actual red-carpet outfit: a custom Thierry Mugler minidress covered in crystals that looked like water droplets from far away.
