Well, Kim Kardashian has come a long way since last year!

The Vogue cover girl (get over it already) pulled out all the stops in a stunning Lanvin dress at the 2014 Met Gala in New York City on Monday night.

With husband-to-be Kanye West by her side (or more accurately, behind her) on the red carpet, the 33-year-old "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" star erased all bad memories of her 2013 Met Gala dress with the sexy and elegant dark blue and black frock, which featured a flattering belt that cinched in her waist.

The strapless gown wasn't without its sex appeal (come on, this is Kim K we're talking about): a leg-baring thigh high slit and a low neckline that revealed plenty of cleavage a la Kate Upton completed the gown's dazzling look.

So, is it fair to say that North West's mama has finally turned herself into a red carpet maven worthy of being at one of the most prestigious fashion events of the year? We're gonna have to say, hell yes!
