Kim Kardashian may seem confident no matter what she’s wearing, but she does have some fashion regrets.
The beauty mogul, 38, took to Twitter on the first Monday in May to look back at her past Met Gala looks before tonight’s “Camp: Notes on Fashion”-themed event, starting with her first appearance in 2013.
Kardashian said she was “so nervous” to attend the Anna Wintour-hosted fête for the first time as Kanye West’s plus one. “I didn’t know anyone & I’m sure no one wanted me there lol,” she captioned photos of herself at the event, which she attended while pregnant with her first child, North.
While it was rumored that Wintour herself previously banned Kardashian from attending the annual party, the Vogue editor-in-chief’s cold shoulder paled in comparison to the public reaction to the star’s floral gown with matching gloves and shoes. Her Riccardo Tisci-designed Givenchy look quickly became a meme, and was compared to a grandmother’s couch on social media.
Plus, Kardashian revealed that she did her own lipstick for the evening, and admitted “the color [was] so off.”
Despite posing confidently on the red carpet, Kardashian said that she was devastated at the time. “I went home & cried after of insecurity,” she said. “But this is one of my fave looks now.”
For her subsequent appearances on the stairs of the Met, Kardashian has worn Lanvin, Peter Dundas for Roberto Cavalli, Balmain, Vivienne Westwood and, last year, Versace. In 2015, Kim said she was two months pregnant with her second child, Saint, but “desperately trying to hide it.” However, she added that she felt “so confident” in the totally sheer gown.
2016 was also a rough year for the Wests. “I was back to insecure this year because I hadn’t lost all of my baby weight,” Kardashian wrote. “Big mistake to bleach the brows but Kanye looked so good this year with those blue eyes! It was super controversial that he wore denim.”
