Kim Kardashian’s Met Gala 2021 outfit is not one many of us will forget for a long time, especially now the cost of her hairdo has been revealed.

The reality star, 40, turned heads on the red carpet – and spawned a host of memes – thanks to her outfit, which saw her encased in a head to toe black look which even covered her face, leaving just her long ponytail visible.

While the work of her make-up artist Mario Dedivanovic might have been overlooked thanks to it being hidden under a full-face hood, her hairdresser’s handiwork was the only thing that was on full view.

And it’s just as well it was, given that he has revealed exactly how much that 75-inch ponytail actually cost.

Chris Appleton, who created the snatched look, revealed during a Q&A with fans that the statement pony actually cost a whopping $10,000 (£7,317).

The rest of Kim’s look came courtesy of a custom Balenciaga gown with a matching train that was designed by her estranged husband Kanye West alongside the brand’s creative director, Demna Gvasalia.

Chris had earlier shared the secrets to perfecting the sleek hair look, sharing a photo of Kim K in the glam chair as he told his followers: ‘Bts #metballglam Break down below.

‘Prep hair with @colorwowhair dream coat for a high gloss Finnish, using cult favorite hairspray apply throughout roots.

‘Using @leandrolimited scalp care brush hair in to a ponytail. Add extensions for length. Using a @leandrolimited flattening iron with @colorwowhair extra shine spray for a lux finish.’

One of the most iconic snaps of the night was a photo of Kim with her arms outstretched in front of sister Kendall Jenner, 25, who looked on quizzically.

She explained on her Instagram story, Kim revealed: ‘Kendall was calling my name and I couldn’t see who it was but I saw the outline of her sparkly dress,’ adding a cry-laughing emoji.
