The greatest, ugliest, and strangest Met Gala outfits of the year
At this years Met Gala, Kim Kardashian went to great efforts to fit into one of the world’s most iconic and expensive vintage gowns.
Kardashian’s transformation into Monroe for the Met Gala carpet took more than sporting the Bob Mackie dress. “I did want a physical change too,” she told Vogue.
As well as bleaching her hair platinum blond, Kardashian said she lost 16 pounds (7kg) in less than a month to fit into the dress.
“It was such a challenge,” she said. “It was like a role. I was determined to fit this. I would wear a sauna suit twice a day, run on the treadmill, completely cut out all sugar and all carbs, and just eat the cleanest veggies and protein.”
Kim Kardashian walked the red carpet at the 2022 Met Gala in a crystal-encrusted gown that was last worn by Marilyn Monroe six decades ago when she serenaded US President John F Kennedy on his birthday.
The Met Gala, or Met Ball, formally called the Costume Institute Gala or the Costume Institute Benefit, is an annual fundraising gala held for the benefit of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in New York City. They have a certain theme each year and this years outfits certainly didn’t disappoint!
