Not impressed: Kendall Jenner was branded the ‘blandest person’ at this year’s Met Gala by Twitter users
Another user commented: ‘Kendall Jenner came through in her finest Fashion Nova jumpsuit. Use code “YAWN” for 10% off #MetGala’.
While one Twitter user bemoaned the unfairness of the world: ‘Kendall Jenner has all that money yet she can’t even follow one simple theme the wrong people always get to be rich’.
While she caught flack for her tame and rather unimaginative take on the theme – opting for angelic without much flair – she still looked gorgeous as always.

Look white hot in a jumpsuit like Kendall's
Kendall Jenner just dropped the mic (stylistically speaking) at the Met Gala. She attended the fashion event of the year wearing an all white custom creation by Virgil Abloh.
Ah yes, Virgil Abloh, the man whose name is at the tip of everyone's tongue in the fashion world after his meteoric rise from streetwear designer to menswear Creative Director of Louis Vuitton.
Based upon this masterful jumpsuit, it's plain to see why the designer has quickly become an indispensable part of the fashion zeitgeist.
Kendall's off- the- shoulder jumpsuit was made with delicate opaque fabric that gathered over a figure cinching corseted bodice. The wide leg trousers worked to elongate her impossibly lean pins while the stroke of sheer sartorial genius laid bare in the tulle gathered gloves that rendered us breathless.
Sadly this look was a custom made number for the catwalk queen but if you're hot to explore the label more thoroughly then click right to shop the current collection up for grabs at Revolve.

The annual gala is always tied to an exhibit at the Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
This year it will examine ‘fashion’s ongoing engagement with the devotional practices and traditions of Catholicism.’
The exhibition combines works of fashion with works of religious art, including 50 ecclesiastical masterworks on loan from the Sistine Chapel sacristy at the Vatican.
Those items, which will be on view in the Anna Wintour Costume Center galleries, include papal vestments and accessories, such as rings and tiaras, from the 18th to the early 21st century, the museum said. The items encompass more than 15 papacies.
Up, up, up: Donning white, open-toed heels, the young model made a statement with her jumpsuit radiating as a vision of strength
‘Fashion and religion have long been intertwined, mutually inspiring and informing one another,’ Andrew Bolton, head curator of the institute, said in a statement.
‘Although this relationship has been complex and sometimes contested, it has produced some of the most inventive and innovative creations in the history of fashion.’
The 150 fashion ensembles come from a slew of designers, including Cristobal Balenciaga, Coco Chanel, John Galliano, Karl Lagerfeld, Givenchy, Christian Lacroix, Thierry Mugler, Raf Simons, Thom Browne and Gianni and Donatella Versace, among many others.
The exhibition, which will run May 10 through October 8, is a collaboration between the Costume Institute and the Department of Medieval Art and The Cloisters.
