Why does Kim Kardashian always wear black? Kanye may be behind Kim's bondage fashion choices

New York, New York - Kim Kardashian went full incognito during New York Fashion Week and at The Met Gala. Is Kanye West the reason why this Kardashian has been wearing all black recently?

She's been called Kimmy Cakes for a reason – often calling attention to her ample features and form-fitting clothing. Now, the 41-year-old's recent wardrobe has left many wondering just what in the world she's up to.

During New York City's most important time of year (for celebrities), the reality TV star chose some peculiar outfits that seemed out of the norm, even for her.

On Monday, Kim arrived at the 2021 Met Gala in all-black Balenciaga attire that featured a long-sleeve turtleneck bodysuit under an oversized T-shirt dress with a long pleated train. She topped the look off with black jersey boots, jersey gloves, and a mask that covered her face and head.

Over the weekend, Kim was spotted wearing a similar all-black bondage-inspired Balenciaga outfit. The ensemble featured a black leather zip-up face mask, a matching trench coat, pants, gloves, and stiletto boots. Even Kim gave a nod to the dark "grim reaper" vibe, captioning a post of the outfit with a knife emoji.

Is Kanye behind why Kim Kardashian has been wearing all black lately?

In August, Kim matched Yeezy at his listening party for DONDA by sporting – yet again – a skin-tight, all-black outfit that included a ski mask-like accent. Are Kim's strange choices for fashion's biggest events a nod to her estranged hubby?

The question was furthered by Kim's puzzling Instagram antics on Monday, and a mystery man who accompanied the star on the Met Gala red carpet wearing the same ensemble.

Unmasking the truth around Kim Kardashian's recent bondage and all-black wardrobe

On Monday night, fans quickly assumed the man behind the mask was Ye, but it has turned out to be designer and Balenciaga creative director Demna Gvasalia.

Kanye has worked with the popular designer in the past, and the rapper has been known to also wear their faceless masks a lot recently, just like Kim.

There seems to be a strange connection between the two former spouses, their fashion choices, and their antics on the 'Gram this week.

It was revealed that Ye officially unfollowed Kim on Instagram days ago, but then quickly followed her again.

While it doesn't mean the two are on bad terms, it's still questionable, since Kanye allegedly confessed to cheating on his former wife in one of the songs on his latest album.

Then on Monday, Kim made her IG profile pic all-black, as did Kanye and all the other accounts Kanye follows. There is definitely an unrevealed, puzzling connection between it all.

It certainly seems that the reason why Kim Kardashian always wears black at the moment has something to do with Ye, but what's the hidden message? We'll just have to wait and find out.
