Kim Kardashian stunned in one of Marilyn Monroe’s most famous looks as she walked the Met Gala 2022 red carpet on Monday along with her beau Pete Davidson. However, her revelation about following a very strict diet plan to lose 16lbs (7 kgs) in three weeks in order to fit into the whopping $4.81 million dress is being slammed by people, who feel that the socialite is “promoting unhealthy body standards.”

“The Kim Kardashian weight loss thing is f—-d up and NOT okay to talk about on national television where the youth will find it and bring it to therapy to defend their eating disorders,” one person wrote. 

“Kim said she’s been avoiding carbs and as soon as the night is over she’s ordering pizza. Eek, restricting yourself for dramatic weight loss to basically binge afterwards isn’t healthy or worth it. We are all enough as we are,” another user commented.

Speaking about the look, she told Vogue, “The idea really came to me after the gala in September last year. I thought to myself, what would I have done for the American theme if it had not been the Balenciaga look? What’s the most American thing you can think of? And that’s Marilyn Monroe.”

Revealing that she to lose sixteen pounds in three weeks to fit into the outfit, the KKW Beauty founder told the magazine, she “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. I didn’t starve myself, but I was so strict.”
