Kim Kardashian West is getting ready for Saturday Night Live in style.
On Tuesday night, the 40-year-old Keeping Up with the Kardashians made a fashion statement in New York City, stepping out for dinner with the SNL cast ahead of her hosting debut this weekend.
Kardashian rocked an all-black Balenciaga outfit — similar to her viral Met Gala look — adding a sparkling, oversized, fuzzy coat and shades.

After Kardashian was announced as an upcoming host for the sketch comedy show, Debra Messing said she was surprised about the casting news.
"Why Kim Kardashian?" the 53-year-old actress tweeted in September. "I mean, I know she is a cultural icon, but SNL has hosts, generally, who are performers who are there to promote a film, TV show, or album launch. Am I missing something?"
Kardashian, meanwhile, has only expressed excitement about stepping on stage
"OMFG no turning back now!!!! LOL," she tweeted after the gig was announced last month. "I'm hosting SNL!!!!!!"
OMFG no turning back now!!!! LOL

In addition to hosting SNL, the mom of four has been busy promoting the recent launch of a new SKIMS campaign and has been working on rebranding her beauty line.
Her famous family also has a new Hulu show coming up, after KUWTK came to close earlier this year after 20 seasons on E!. Though an official premiere date has not yet been announced, matriarch Kris Jenner previously teased the new programming would hit the streaming service in 2021.

Kardashian recently alluded to the start of production last month, posting a photo of a microphone pack on her Instagram Story with the caption, "Day 1."
Last December, Kris, 65, and Kardashian West — as well as Khloé Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian, Kendall Jenner, and Kylie Jenner — signed a multi-year deal to "create global content" that will be streamed exclusively on Hulu in the United States and in multiple territories on Star internationally.
"Excited to announce our new multi-year partnership with Hulu and Star and what's to come in 2021 @hulu," Kris tweeted of the big news last year.
