I’m a booty queen too! Kendall Jenner puts her naked ambition on show as she attempts to overthrow her sisters in sheer gown at Met Gala
She made a strong argument for being the crown jewel of the Kardashian/Jenner clan on Monday night.
Kendall Jenner arrived at the Met Gala in New York in a gown made entirely of hand-painted crystals.
The 21-year-old wore nothing but a thong in the sheer dress, which featured a slashed design across the chest and a split skirt.

The gown was part of La Perla Haute Couture Collection designed by Creative Director Julia Haart.
The frock was a crystal draped gown in dégradé shades, complete with a barely-there painted macramé bodysuit.
The material was created from 85,000 hand painted and placed crystals and took 160 hours of labor to make.

Designer Julia Haart said of the gown: ‘I was inspired by Rei Kawakubo’s concept of ‘un-fabric’ and her ability to create movement out of seemingly immobile materials. So, I created my own ‘un-fabric’ by affixing stones to a single thread, creating a beautiful and liquid suspension that mirrored the qualities of a fine silk.’
The outing comes after Kendall has been under fire for promoting the grand failure that was the Fyre festival, which ended up costing festival-goers thousands of dollars for a weekend that ended in disaster.
The criticism directly followed the model being slammed for starring in Pepsi’s tone deaf ad, which trivialized the black lives matter movement.
Her outing at the Met Gala is surely is a welcome relief for the star as she showed off her elegant sense of style.

Kendall’s sister Kylie, 19, snapped a bathroom selfie inside the museum with Kendall, big half-sister Kim Kardashian and a bunch of their pals.
The social media snap revealed that ASAP Rocky – Kendall’s rumored beau – was also at the event with the two cozying up for Kylie’s photo.
Kendall and the rapper, 28, were photographed together on Sunday doing some shopping in the Big Apple.
Costume Institute curator Andrew Bolton, told AP that Kawakubo is considered the world’s ‘most important and influential designer’ of the moment and ‘has consistently defined and re-defined the aesthetics of our time.’
Known for bold, experimental clothing, Kawakubo’s designs have an austere aesthetic and a cult following.
The 74-year-old officially founded her cerebral design house in 1973 to critical acclaim – and was dubbed ‘anti-fashion’ for challenging the notions of beauty with her innovative aesthetic.
Comme des Garcons has been showing collections in Paris each season since 1981.
The Metropolitan Museum in New York – where the annual gala is held – is displaying 120 Comme des Garçons womenswear designs by Kawakubo, spanning the past 35 years, since her first Paris show.
