E! Live From the Red Carpet Exclusive: Kris Jenner Says Kylie Jenner Told Her to Go Blonde Hours Before 2019 Met Gala

A blonde Kris Jenner has arrived to the 2019 Met Gala!

The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star just hit the red carpet with a new 'do at the fashion event, held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. For this year's event, themed "Camp: Notes on Fashion," Kris paired her blonde hair with a navy jumpsuit design by Tommy Hilfiger.

"My advice to anybody going to the Met Gala in the future would be wear pants because I'm so comfortable," Kris told E! News' Zuri Hallon E!'s Live From the Red Carpet. "And Tommy Hilfiger designed this amazing opera coat so very excited."

As for her new blonde hair, Kris dished to E! News that it was Kylie Jenner who decided she needed to change up her 'do.

"Well, a couple of hours ago Kylie decided that I should be blonde," Kris said. "So that was wild! She was like, 'Mom, there's no black hair tonight.' You're going as a blonde."

So, is she having more fun as a blonde?

"It's a great night, so yes," Kris shared.

Hours before hitting the red carpet, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry welcomed their first child together, a baby boy.

Sharing advice for the royal couple, Kris said, "Just enjoy every second of that first few days. And just close the door, shut out the world and enjoy."
