Kris Jenner Went Blond for the 2019 Met Gala Because Kylie Made Her

Blonds are definitely having a big moment on the Met Gala pink carpet tonight. From Lady Gaga’s stunning entrance to Mindy Kaling’s surprise style and Kacey Musgraves full-on Barbie look, it’s definitely the hair color of the night.

Kris Jenner also showed up without her signature black short hair and instead opted for a blunt blond bob to go along with her Tommy Hilfiger navy pantsuit and opera coat—a look that she described as “channeling David Bowie” but also how she “dressed all through the ’80s.” But the blond was a very last minute decision—or more appropriately, a mandate from Jenner’s youngest daughter, Kylie Jenner.

“Well, a couple of hours ago Kylie decided that I should be blond,” the momager told E! “So that was wild. She was like ‘Mom, there’s no black hair tonight. You’re going as a blond.'” It’s obviously a wig, but even that isn’t easy to pull off in short notice, mere hours before one of the biggest fashion events of the year. But, obviously, if anyone can pull off a major change at the last minute, it’s going to be Kris Jenner.

Twitter was pretty into it as well. “BLONDE KRIS JENNER IS GIVING MY LIFE MEANING!!!!” one fan wrote. Another called it that the plan was Kylie’s idea. (In fact, the look is reminiscent of Kylie’s at the 2017 Met Gala.)

Since Kylie said there was no black hair tonight, does that mean the rest of the fam is going platinum too? I guess we’ll have to wait for Kim, Kylie, and Kendall to show up to find out.
