Met Gala fans are loving Pete Davidson's reaction to walking the red carpet with his girlfriend, reality TV icon Kim Kardashian.
The SKIMS founder, 41, certainly turned heads at the Met Gala on Monday, when she appeared on the red carpet wearing an iconic dress worn by Marilyn Monroe.
Thankfully, Pete, 28, was there to keep Kim calm and threw up a peace sign as he attended his first ever Met Gala.
"DID PETE JUST THROW A PEACE SIGN AT THE MET," one fan tweeted.
Another Twitter user shared: "Ok but why is Pete Davidson throwing up a peace sign at the Met Gala literally me."
A fourth person joked: "I appreciate Pete Davidson Peace-ing out while Kim does all the modeling work."
Kim took to the red carpet wearing the dress Marilyn wore to sing 'Happy Birthday' to John F. Kennedy at Madison Square Garden in front of 15,000 people.
In order to give full Marilyn, Kim also chopped up her hair and bleached it blonde, matching the glittering dress with a pair of diamond earrings.
Speaking to Vogue about her Marilyn look, Kim revealed that she had been planning it since last year's Met Gala.
She explained: "The idea really came to me after the gala in September last year. I thought to myself, what would I have done for the American theme if it had not been the Balenciaga look? What’s the most American thing you can think of? And that’s Marilyn Monroe."
The reality star had to put the work in to make the Marilyn dress work for her, revealing that she had to have it transported to her by guards and was even required to wear gloves while trying it on.
