Kim Kardashian panicked the first time she noticed she had gained two pounds a few days before the Met Gala in 2022. In the most recent episode of “The Kardashians,” the “Skims” star said that she achieved her ideal weight of 118 pounds “again,” but she had to go to extremes to do so.
“So, I am down to 118 [pounds] again. I got up to 120 [pounds] which was tripping me out,” Kim told her personal trainer in Thursday’s episode.
The “SKIMS” founder revealed that she bought a sauna suit to assist her to shed the two pounds she needed to fit into Marilyn Monroe’s classic outfit.
“So, I fit into the dress, but I am not going to stop working out. I got this sauna suit and I put it on and it makes you sweat — even if it is water weight it will help,” she explained of the hard work she put into the May event for what would ultimately be a few minutes in the relic.
“All of this — this losing weight, dyeing the hair for 30 hours, leaving the hotel in a robe, getting there, changing on the red carpet, just walking to the red carpet, then changing again into a replica of the dress because we can’t risk sitting in it and eating dinner — is all for maybe 10 minutes of my life … like, that’s it,” Kim said.
Kim was actually expecting the backlash she’d later receive for wearing Monroe’s piece at the Met, saying, “I’m a little nervous some people will hate, and just be like, ‘How dare she think she can step into Marilyn’s dress’ … and I get that.”
Kim Kardashian not only received criticism for wearing the piece of history but also for the fact that she flaunted that she lost 16 pounds in a month to do it.
“To walk on a red carpet and do an interview where you say how starving you are… because you haven’t eaten carbs in the last month…all to fit in a f–king dress?” actress Lili Reinhart, 26, wrote on her Instagram Story.
