Kim Kardashian stepped out in a silver metallic, long-sleeve Balmain gown, paired with a bold ear cuff, at Monday's Met Gala, held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Monday in New York City. This year's theme celebrates the museum's Costume Institute exhibition "Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology," which explores the intersection of haute couture and machine-made fashion.

Kardashian, who was accompanied by husband Kanye West, attended last year in a sheer embellished Roberto Cavalli gown designed by Peter Dundas.

This year marks the fourth time the couple has stepped out together for the Met Gala; they made their red-carpet debut in 2013 for the "Punk: Chaos to Couture"-themed event.
