Kim Kardashian has been slammed by fans after revealing how she ‘lost 16Ibs in three weeks’ in order to fit in Marilyn Monroe’s dress for the Met Gala.
The reality star told Vogue that she managed to fit into the icon’s ‘Happy Birthday Mr President’ gown by cutting out ‘carbs and sugar’ from her diet.
Chatting to reporters, Kardashian said: “I had this idea to try it on and then they came with armed guards and gloves. I tried it on and it didn’t fit me. I said, ‘Give me three weeks’.

She added: “I had to lose 16 pounds down today. It was such a challenge. It was like a [movie] role. I was determined to fit [into] it. I haven’t had carbs or sugar in about three weeks.
“We’re having a pizza and doughnut party back at the hotel [after the Met Gala].”
After hearing how the Kardashian made herself fit into the gown, many have taken to Twitter and shared their criticism.
One penned: “Kim Kardashian looked beautiful at the Met Gala, but she has promoted unrealistic body standards for YEARS (diet teas, waist trainers, $$$ procedures, etc) and her talking about losing 16lbs in three weeks to fit into Marilyn’s dress (which no one should get to wear) is appalling.”
“Kim Kardashian really be out here telling people it’s fine to crash diet and lose 7kg/16lb in three weeks,” another added. “This isn’t something to brag about, Kim.”
A third pitched in, writing: “Kim Kardashian proudly saying she went on an extreme diet to lose a stone in three weeks to fit into a dress she was only allowed to wear for less than 10 minutes is frankly disgusting and irresponsible and unhinged but hey what do I know.”
