Kim Kardashian had a painful medical scare ahead of the 2022 Met Gala. She shared that she almost didn’t make it because of this reason. It was previously assumed Kim didn’t show up if she couldn’t fit into Marilyn Monroe’s iconic gown. The reality star managed to lose 16 pounds to make it happen.
However, the details of the alterations and fittings are kind of confusing. Both Kim and Ripley’s Believe it or Not! have gotten backlash for allowing this to happen. Now, she’s sharing a different story as to what happened that time. She revealed what she suffered in secret.
Kim Kardashian lost 16 pounds for the Met Gala
In an exclusive interview with Vogue, Kim Kardashian revealed that she lost 16 pounds in three weeks for the Met Gala. She was determined to make it happen. The KUWTK alum claimed to be curvier than the legendary actress. She only had a few weeks to lose the weight, so she quit carbs and only ate “just the cleanest veggies and protein.”
During that time, Kim Kardashian ran on the treadmill and sweated in the sauna every day. She’s been blasted for promoting an unhealthy lifestyle to her fans. Experts claim this could lead to devastating mental and physical effects. However, she claims that it worked well for her so far.
“I had this idea to put it on and to try it on, and they came with armed guards and gloves,” Kim Kardashian explained. “I tried it on and it didn’t fit me, and so I looked at them and said give me like three weeks, and I had to lose 16lbs, down today, to be able to fit into this. It was such a challenge, it was like a role, I was determined to fit into it.”
The Skims founder was proud of her efforts. Since then, Kim revealed that she’s lost a total of 20 pounds. Fans can’t help but notice how much slimmer she looks these days. She even got rid of her ample booty — a part of her that made her famous.
KUWTK alum’s secret health battle
Kim Kardashian has talked about her struggles with psoriasis for years. But, she suffered another medical scare while getting ready for the Met Gala. She suffered from a bout of psoriatic arthritis during the time she was trying to lose weight.
“Psoriasis broke out over my body and I got psoriatic arthritis so I couldn’t really move my hands,” Kim Kardashian revealed in her August 2022 cover story for Allure. “It was really painful, and I had to go to a rheumatologist, who put on a steroid. I was freaking out. I cut out the meat again, and it’s calmed down.”

The entrepreneur also admitted that she went through a “roller coaster of emotions” when trying to fit into that dress. But, she was determined to make it happen. Kim also answered whether she sets unrealistic beauty standards. She only said that if she can do it, then “it’s attainable” for anyone.
“There are so many different beauty standards — whether it’s Gwen Stefani, Jennifer Lopez, Marilyn Monroe … My mentality was always: Be yourself, find beauty in everything.”
