Kim Kardashian changed her accessories at the last minute before attending the Met Gala.

The 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star walked the red carpet at the 2014 Costume Institute Gala in New York City on Monday evening (05.05.14) wearing a stunning midnight blue and black Lanvin gown which she paired with minimal accessories.

However, pictures of Kim wearing much edgier jewellery before she arrived at the event at the Metropolitan Museum of Art left people wondering what prompted her to change her mind, and she's now taken to her blog to explain her choice.

She wrote: ''It was such a tough decision on how to accessorise. I left the store with a chunky belt and leather cuffs. We were going back and forth for hours if the chunky belt was right.

''In the car on our way there we got a glimpse of the red carpet, and I decided the accessories were a bit too 'rock 'n' roll' and I wanted to go for something simple and elegant.''

The reality TV star - who attended the event with her 'Yeezus' rapper fiancé Kanye West - swapped her black leather belt and cuffs for a smooth satin belt and also switched her simple black sandals for a pair of strappy black heels.

The official theme for the annual event was 'Charles James: Beyond Fashion', James being a designer who was popular in the 40s and 50s, and Kim felt her simple accessories better suited this.

She added: ''To me it felt more classic and fit the Forties theme better ... Overall I thought it was the right decision and I loved the way everything came together.''
