Kylie Jenner Predictably Wears Balmain to the 2016 Met Gala

It seems like every year the Met Gala opens its gates to one additional Kardashian affiliate. 2016's entrant is none other than Kylie Jenner. The 18-year-old wore family favorite Balmain for the occasion, as did big sister Kim (seriously, do they get a group discount or).

Normally when Kylie wears Balmain — because that's a thing that's normal for Kylie — she does a long sleeve mini dress with tons of beading. Tonight's outfit hits the long sleeve and the beading parts, but it's floor length. Despite the coverage, Kylie keeps the family tradition of the "naked dress" alive, with basically pin stripes of skin reveal.

As for beauty, Kylie went for a neutral lip and a smokey eye we'd rate on level two of five on the Kardashian makeup scale. Her hair was styled in to sleek bob with an off-center part.
