Met Gala 2022: Billionaires Kim Kardashian and Elon Musk chat alongside her beau Pete Davidson

Kim Kardashian and her boyfriend Pete Davidson took the chance to catch up with billionaire Elon Musk at the 2022 Met Gala on Monday.

The 41-year-old Kardashians star and the 28-year-old SNL fixture were seen chatting with the Tesla founder and her mother Kris Jenner’s boyfriend Corey Gamble after walking the red carpet at the event in Manhattan.

Although Kim appeared to be wearing the same dress worn worn nearly 60 years earlier by Marilyn Monroe, she changed into a replica of the iconic outfit once inside the event so as to preserve the timeless treasure.

Kim’s glittering beaded gown was designed by Jean Louis, and has been on display at Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Museum in Orlando, Florida, after the attraction bought it from Julien’s Auction for $4.81 million.

But the reality star’s replica worn inside the event was a perfect copy of the original and didn’t betray its more modern provenance.

The inside of the Met Gala featured a stunning display of wealth, as Kim — who was recently declared a billionaire — was chatting with Elon Musk, who is currently the richest man alive.

He currently has a net worth of $253.6 billion, according to Forbes, while the outlet determined that Kim is worth a still-impressive $1.8 billion.
