When appearing on the red carpet at the New York Event, the SKIMS owner claimed that she lost a whopping 16Ibs to fit into the icon’s ‘Happy Birthday Mr President’ gown.
She told Vogue: “I always thought she was extremely curvy. I imagined I might be smaller in some places where she was bigger and bigger in places where she was smaller. So when it didn’t fit me I wanted to cry because it can’t be altered at all.”

Instead of searching for another outfit for the Met, Kardashian said that she decided that somehow, she would have to lose a huge amount of weight instead.
Chatting to the interviewee, she continued: “It was like a role, I was determined to fit it.”
The reality star went on to add that she didn’t ‘starve’ but simply ate the ‘cleanest veggies and protein’.
However, these claims about losing so much weight in such a short amount of time have been blasted by dieticians.
Expert Nichola Ludlam-Raine reportedly told the Insider that Kardashian’s explanation for her weight could be deemed ‘dangerous to vulnerable people,’ especially to those with eating disorders.
She apparently added: “I would go far as saying it’s impossible to lose 16lbs of fat in three weeks.”
The dietician went on to explain that when carbs and sugar are cut from a person’s diet, the body will end up losing water and glycogen from the liver and muscles.
Ludlam-Raine added that people often think they’ve ‘lost fat’ when trying out this method, but it’s usually just water.
She warned: “It’s not sustainable to cut out all carbs [and sugar] long term, as they’re what our body and brain use as fuel.”
