Kim Kardashian lost over 15 pounds for the Monroe dress at the Met Gala. This is how the 41-year-old deals with the criticism.

Kim Kardashian (41) justified her crash diet before the Met Gala in early May. In an interview with the “New York Times” she spoke about the criticism that hit her. In order to fit into a dress once created for Marilyn Monroe (1926-1962), the reality star lost over seven kilos in a short period of time. Apparently, she did without sugar and carbohydrates for three weeks as part of a diet.

That’s what she says about the criticism

Not everyone liked the fact that Kardashian spoke openly about this crash diet. The 41-year-old responded to the violent negative reactions: “I didn’t say: ‘Hey people, why don’t you lose this weight in a short time?'” In the interview with the “New York Times” she compared the weight loss for the Event with a film role: “For me it was like, ‘OK, Christian Bale can do it for a film role and that’s fine. Renée Zellweger also upped for a role. It’s all the same to me.’

Monroe dress was on loan

She also explained that she lost around seven kilos by paying attention to her diet, running twice a day and wearing a sauna suit. In her opinion, she “did nothing unhealthy”. If she hadn’t reached her weight loss goal, she wouldn’t have gone to the Met Gala. It was simply important to her to “achieve this goal”.

Kardashian borrowed the Marilyn Monroe dress for a short time. It was only available for her to walk the red carpet at the Met Gala. Changes to the dress or body make-up were prohibited.
