Learn from others. Kim Kardashian shared a cryptic message after receiving criticism for dropping 16 pounds in three weeks to fit into Marilyn Monroe’s iconic “Happy Birthday Mr. President” dress for the 2022 Met Gala.
“Be teachable. Be open. You’re not always right,” the Wednesday, May 4 post read via Instagram stories.
Kardashian, 41, revealed on the red carpet at the Monday, May 2, Met Gala that the first time she tried on the famous garment, it didn’t fit. “So I looked at them and I said, ‘give me, like three weeks,’” the SKIMS CEO recalled. “It was such a challenge, it was like a role. I was determined, I was determined to fit in it,” she continued.
The Keeping up with Kardashians Alum also told Vogue about the strict regimen she adhered to after that first fitting.
“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,” she told the outlet. “I didn’t Starve myself, but I was so strict.”
Riverdale star Lili ReinhartOn Tuesday, May 3, 2013, The Advocate took to social media to voice their disapproval Kardashians star’s comments.
“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?” Reinhart, 25, wrote on her Instagram Story. “So wrong. So f-ked on 100s of levels.”
The Hustlers actress, who noted she wasn’t slamming Kardashian for attention, continued, “To openly admit to starving yourself for the sake of the Met Gala. Knowing that millions of young people are watching you and listening to every word. The ignorance is other-worldly disgusting.”
Reality TV star was also criticized for wearing a piece fashion history to the event. Sarah Scaturro, a former conservator at the Met’s Costume Institute, told the Los Angeles Times, “I’m frustrated because it sets back what is considered professional treatment for historic costume. In the ‘80s, a bunch of costume professionals came together to state a resolution that historic costume should not be worn. So my worry is that colleagues in historic costume collections are now going to be pressured by important people to let them wear garments.”
Kardashian, who transformed into a replica of that gown after taking photos at the Met Steps, stated that she respected the integrity and beauty of the gown.
“I’m extremely respectful to the dress and what it means to American history. I would never want to sit in it or eat in it or have any risk of damage to it,” she said.
