Kim Kardashian and Kanye West made a grand entrance to NYC's Metropolitan Museum of Art for last night's Costume Institute Benefit. Kim donned a floral Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci Met Gala gown to make her inaugural appearance, which was a highly-anticipated one since much attention has been directed towards her recent maternity wear. The couple, who are expecting their first child in July, attended the gala together for the first time, since Kanye was the live entertainment for the event. Although Kim was scrutinized for her covered-up look, Kanye came to her defense during his performance last night on stage adding a line into his song directed at Kim singing, "You're so awesome." His sentiments were reflected on the red carpet as well as Kim and Kanye shared many affectionate moments on their way into the fashionable affair. Click through to see them all!
The annual Costume Institute Benefit is all about fashion and fun, but before the stars can celebrate inside the bash, they have to make their way into the Metropolitan Museum of Art by way of the grand staircase. The dramatic carpeted steps make for gorgeous photos — and sometimes dress difficulties — as celebrities navigate the steps in their stylish gowns and getups. We've rounded up the most stunning staircase shots from this year's gala, starting with Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's moment on their way into the Met.
Kim Kardashian made her first appearance at a Met Gala on boyfriend Kanye West's arm this evening, and she's already on the receiving end of a fair amount of criticism for her floral full-coverage Givenchy dress. Kim's attendance at the event was news enough after rumors that Anna Wintour banned her from the Met Gala last year. This time, she was on Kanye's arm, and the two even reportedly went to dinner at Anna's house last night. Just now inside the Met Gala, Kanye defended Kim during his onstage performance. Model Coco Rocha tweeted a Vine video clip, saying, "Kanye telling Kim not to worry what anyone says that she's awesome. Quite touching really."
Watch the clip here (un-mute it in the upper left-hand corner), and let us know what you think of his public declaration for Kim at the Met Gala — chivalrous or ridiculous?
Kim Kardashian celebrated Cinco de Mayo in NYC with two of her favorite guys — Kanye West and best friend Jonathan Cheban. She wore a sheer black dress to grab lunch with Jonathan and designer Rachel Roy at an eatery in the city but later changed into a clingy satin LBD to reunite with Kanye for a meeting with Anna Wintour. Kim and Kanye reportedly had dinner with Anna ahead of tonight's Met Gala, where Kanye will reportedly perform. Before landing in the Big Apple, Kim visited a Sears store in Houston on Saturday to promote her Kardashian Kollection with her sisters. It's been a whirlwind few weeks of travels for Kim, who recently went to Greece, Paris, London, and NYC in just one week.
It was a fun-filled week for celebrities, between star-studded premieres and beach getaways.

Kim Kardashian had one of the best seats in the house at Beyoncé's Mrs. Carter Show performance in London tonight and shared a snap of the singer on Instagram. It's Beyoncé's third concert at the O2 Arena this week, and she'll play three more before heading on to the Manchester Arena. Kim's not the only famous face to be spotted in the audience during Beyoncé's UK stint, since Princess Eugenie attended last night's show, where she declined to join Beyoncé in singing a line from "Irreplaceable."
Kim's concert stop comes on the heels of a stay in Paris with Kanye West on Tuesday and a family getaway to Greece over the weekend. The Mykonos trip mixed work and play with camera crews from Keeping Up With the Kardashians, capturing the group as they rode water skis and went horseback riding. It wasn't all about water activities, though, since Kim showed off her bump in a bikini while lounging poolside.
Kim Kardashian traded her signature sky-high heels for a pair of flat sandals to join Kanye West on the streets of Paris today. The expectant couple were reunited in the City of Light after she spent quality time with her family in Mykonos, Greece, over the weekend.

Kim is back by Kanye's side in France as they continue to focus on the July arrival of their first child together. One thing their preparations apparently won't include, though, is gifts. Chicago's Lurie Children's Hospital revealed that in lieu of presents for their daughter, Kim and Kanye have requested donations to the organization, which is located near where Kanye grew up.
Kanye West whisked away pregnant girlfriend Kim Kardashian on a private jet from the set of her reality TV show in Mykonos, Greece, to visit him in Paris. So clearly the soon-to-be parents enjoy grand gestures — but not just flashy ones. The extravagant couple made the generous decision to use their pregnancy to help babies in need.
