Kim Kardashian panicked when she realized she gained back two pounds ahead of Met Gala 2022.
The “Skims” star revealed in the latest episode of “The Kardashians” that she reached her goal weight of 118 pounds “again” but had to go to extremes to do it.
“So, I am down to 118 [pounds] again. I got up to 120 [pounds] which was tripping me out,” Kardashian told her personal trainer in Thursday’s episode.
To help lose the extra two pounds she needed to fit into Marilyn Monroe’s iconic dress, Kardashian shared that she purchased a sauna suit to intensify detoxification.
“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,” Kardashian mused.
Kardashian, 42, also anticipated 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.”
The Skkn by Kim founder 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.
“So wrong. So f–ked on 100s of levels.”
