This was Jenner's first year attending the annual gala, where celebs gather dressed to the nines to support New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art. Eighteen-year-old Jenner wore a gorgeous silver see-through Balmain dress made of what looked like heavy chains, perfectly fitting the theme of the event: fashion in the age of technology.

But the dress had a serious downside. Apparently, the heavy embellishments at the bottom of the skirt were cutting into Jenner's legs all night. After the event, she took to Snapchat to show off a picture of her battle wounds.

"When ur dress made you bleed and ur feet are purple," she captioned the shot. Ouch!

Still, Jenner seems to have learned early on that a little pain can be necessary for her level of fame. She followed up the shot later with a selfie captioned, "It was worth it though."

Jenner made just about every best-dressed list for the event, along with her family who attended with her: Kris Jenner, Kim Kardashian, Kanye West and Kendall Jenner. The entire family rocked Balmain — Kylie used to be the face of the brand — except for Kendall, who wore a Versace gown.
