Despite having to walk the red carpet solo, Kim, 37, oozed confidence and glamour as she wowed onlookers in a shimmering gold Versace dress.
The gown clung to her famous figure and Kim was happy to show it off from all angles as she posed in front of the awaiting photographers.
With flawless hair and make-up, Kim nailed the "Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination" theme for this year's Gala.
Not content with stealing the show in one outfit, Kim then changed into a bondage style black mini dress for the after party at the Mercer Hotel in New York.
The outfit – a vintage number from 1992 and also by Versace – featured a black choker neckline with five buckle straps running down to the cut out bodice, with more buckles down the sides.
Wearing a pair of clear high heels, Kim looked fierce as she headed home to her rapper husband, who has failed to attend the event for the last two years.
In the run up to the event, Kim revealed she was following a strict diet to fit into her gold gown.
The reality star vowed to avoid sugar and continue with her intense workouts to look her best for the annual high-end event, which was attended by the likes of Rihanna, Amal Clooney and Madonna.
However, Kim – who took a mould of her naked body for her new perfume bottle – took to her app to say she had struggled with the strict regime.
She said: "Right now, I'm on the third day of my… cleanse! I'm SO excited to do this, you guys, but I definitely need to mentally prepare, lol.
"I have the Met Gala coming up and I've worked so hard working out, but I started eating a lot of sweets and I wanted to just change my food patterns to eat healthier and cut sugar out of my life as much as I can.
"We always have sweets around and it's really hard when there are temptations everywhere."
