Kim Kardashian had 3 weeks to fit into her Met Gala dress — here’s how she did it

When Marilyn Monroe calls, you answer

May 03 2022

Have you ever tried to fit into a Marilyn Monroe archived dress that cannot be altered or tailored in any way? No? Us either. A woman that has, however, is Kim Kardashian. Fresh off the Met Gala 2022 red carpet, Kardashian revealed two things: firstly, that she did in fact manage to fit the dress and secondly, what it took to get there.

Internet sleuths may had already worked out what Kardashian intended to wear (mostly through following the whereabouts of her private jet), but there was still much speculation as to whether the look would all come together in time. 

During an interview at The Kardashians Hulu premiere, Kardashian announced that she wouldn’t be attending the Met Gala unless she perfectly fit into the form-fitting gown that Monroe wore in 1962 as a guest at John F. Kennedy’s 45th birthday. Familiar with the tune “Happy Birthday, Mr President”? Well, it’s that dress from that night. 

How’d she pull it off? Well, if anyone knows Kardashian (or at least feel like they know her), she commits to a look. We’re talking about the same woman who covered her face in spandex at last year's event. 

So, in the name of fashion, Kardashian cut two of our favourite things from her diet; “I haven’t eaten carbs or sugar in about three weeks,” she said. And though we don’t condone restricting yourself or any scenario that will deprive you of pasta or chocolate, we can’t deny that Kardashian’s look hands down won the Met. 

So, how does one make up for three weeks of lost time? According to Kardashian, her and boyfriend Pete Davidson have an exciting night ahead once the Met is done and dusted for another year.  “We're [having a] pizza and donut party back at the hotel,” she said. 

Honestly, we think we’ll join her. It would be rude not to, right?
