[VIDEO] Kim Kardashian West’s Tiny Met Gala Waist Explained

We all know how extra Kim Kardashian can be when it comes to having the perfect red carpet glam which was evident in her MET GALA 2019 look.

In a behind-the-scenes Vogue video, cameras captured the Keeping Up With the Kardashian star during her last fitting in Los Angeles before fashion’s biggest night out.

The fitting begins, revealing Kardashian West’s secret to her uber-small waist: a custom-made, nude-coloured corset, complete with Spanx that stops just above her knees and clear shoulder straps.

It takes three assistants to strap her into the bodysuit, which was custom-made by Mr Pearl — a French corsetier, well known in the industry.


Over the corset, Kardashian West sported a silicone Thierry Mugler mini dress dripping with several crystals for the “Camp“-themed event.

“Okay, so Anna, if I don’t sit down for dinner, now you know why. I’ll be walking around mingling, talking, but I can hardly sit,” Kardashian West said in the video, addressing Vogue‘s editor-in-chief Anna Wintour. “I can only like, half sit.”

Even before worrying about sitting down at dinner, Kardashian West had to figure out how she’d get to the venue. Instead of riding in a car, she rode through the streets of New York in a van that she could stand up in.

“Just wish me luck,” she said to the camera.
