“To walk a red carpet and do an interview saying how starving you are because you haven’t eaten carbs in the last month … all to fit in a f–king dress?” Lili wrote via Instagram Stories on Tuesday, May 3. “So wrong. So f–ked on 100’s of levels. To openly admit to starving yourself for the sake of the Met Gala.

On Monday, May 2, Kim made major headlines after arriving at the Metropolitan Museum of Art wearing the same dress the late Monroe wore in 1962 when singing “Happy Birthday” to former President John F. Kennedy. She detailed the story of how the fashion moment came to be in an interview with Vogue conducted ahead of the Met Gala.
“What’s the most American thing you can think of? And that’s Marilyn Monroe,” the Skims founder explained to the magazine. “For me, the most Marilyn Monroe moment is when she sang ‘Happy Birthday,’ to JFK, it was that look.”
Explaining why the Bob Mackie gown was so important, Kim explained, “Nowadays everyone wears sheer dresses, but back then that was not the case. In a sense, it’s the original naked dress. That’s why it was so shocking.”
But, during her first fitting, it didn’t fit. “It was this or nothing,” Kim told Vogue.
“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 said of her diet. “I didn’t starve myself, but I was so strict.”
