Kylie Jenner Gleams in Dramatic Corset Gown & Crystal Crown for ‘Thierry Mugler: Couturissime’ Exhibit

Kylie Jenner gave regal style a futuristic twist for the opening of the new “Thierry Mugler: Couturissime” exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum. Held on Tuesday night in New York, the event drew a range of star attendees, including Julia Fox, Tinashe and Lourdes Leon.

The Kylie Beauty founder posed for the occasion in a black satin dress, featuring a tightly corseted bodice. The strapless ensemble, which had a curved neckline and feathered hem, was paired with matching feather-trimmed gloves for a dramatic finish. Completing Jenner’s ensemble were sparkling diamond stud earrings, as well as a curved silver headpiece covered in gleaming crystals — seemingly mimicking a bejeweled tiara.

When it came to footwear, Jenner’s shoes could not be seen. However, it’s likely she donned a pair of matching pointed-toe pumps or heeled sandals for the event — two styles she’s frequently worn for formal occasions and appearances over the years.

The Kylie Baby founder also posed for photos during the opening with Casey Cadwallader, Mugler’s creative director, who joined the house in 2017 prior to its namesake founder’s passing in January.
