Kim Kardashian: this drastic diet she underwent to wear Marilyn Monroe’s dress at the Met Gala 2022

Having chosen to wear a Marilyn Monroe dress to go to the 2022 edition of the famous Met Gala, Kim Kardashian was forced to follow a very strict diet in order to fit into her evening dress.

Like every year, the Met Gala brought together an incredible crowd of celebrities Monday, May 2, 2022 in New York. As a reminder, the annual fundraising dinner organized by the popess of fashion, Anna Wintour, is an unmissable event for the biggest American and world stars. Among the many guests who walked the red carpet, Kim Kardashian once again stood out this year. Arrival in the arms of her new companion, comedian Pete Davidson, the world famous influencer caused a sensation again thanks to her outfit. While she was appeared hooded in Balenciaga last yearKim Kardashian radically changed her style in 2022.

Indeed, the daughter of Kris Jenner wore the famous dress worn by Hollywood icon Marilyn Monroe, when she sang a happy birthday to the late President of the United States, John Fitzgerald Kennedy. “The idea really came to me after the gala in September last year. I wondered what I would have done for the American theme if I hadn’t had the Balenciaga look. What is the most American star that comes to mind? It’s Marilyn Monroe“, she explained. However, putting on this dress was not easy for Kim Kardashian, since she has neither the same size nor the same morphology as Marilyn Monroe. The entrepreneur therefore had to follow a drastic diet. “I must have lost 16 pounds (7 kilos, editor’s note)“, she revealed, according to comments reported by People Magazine.

Kim Kardashian: ‘I haven’t eaten any carbs or sugar in about 3 weeks’

It was such a challenge. It was like a role. I was determined to fit in. I haven’t eaten any carbs or sugar for about 3 weeks“, added Kim Kardashian. As a reminder, the theme of the Met Gala 2022 focused on a very specific period in the history of the USA: the “Gilded Age“. These are the years 1870-1890, the American golden age. This corresponds to the period of prosperity that followed the Civil War, during which the country experienced incredible economic and industrial growth. For the record, Marilyn Monroe would have paid 1440 dollars for this famous custom-made dressworn today by Kim Kardashian.
