Kim Kardashian West’s body-hugging Thierry Mugler dress was one of the fashion highlights from this year’s Met Gala. But it turns out someone very close to her wasn’t a fan of the look: her husband, Kanye West.
During Sunday night’s episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, we saw that Kanye confronted Kim about her buzzy ensemble the night before the Met Gala. Apparently, the rapper wasn’t fond of Kim’s choice in dress because it was “too sexy.”
“I went through this transition where being a rapper, looking at all these girls and looking at my wife, like, ‘Oh my girl needs to be just like the other girls, showing their body off.’ I didn’t realize that that was affecting my soul and my spirit as someone who is married and the father of now…about to be four kids. A corset is a form of underwear; it’s hot. For who though?” you see Kanye tell Kim in the episode.
But she doesn’t skip a beat clapping back at him. “So the night before the Met, you’re going to come in here and say that you’re not into a corset vibe?” she says. “You’re giving me really bad anxiety. You knew last night I had really bad anxiety, and I don’t need any more negative energy and for you to say you’re now not into me wearing a tight dress.” (The look, according to Kim, took eight months to prepare.)
To this, Kanye says, “You are my wife, and it affects me when pictures are too sexy,” which Kim does not take well. “You built me up to be this sexy person and confidence and all this,” she responds, “and just because you’re on a journey and transformation doesn’t mean I’m in the same spot with you.”

Obviously, everything turned out just fine. Kim ultimately did wear the Thierry Mugler outfit to the Met Gala, and Kanye was her date. If he was actually still upset, I’m not sure he would’ve attended the event with Kim.
Interestingly, this isn’t the only Kim Kardashian Met Gala story to come out this week. In a separate clip from KUWTK, which dropped October 11, we learned how Kim was planning to use the bathroom in the Mugler dress, which was quite constraining.
“Honestly, if it’s an emergency, I think I pee my pants and then have my sister wipe my leg up,” she said during a fitting right before the event. “I’m not even joking. She can wipe my leg up.” Talk about true sisterly love.
