Kim Kardashian West couldn't sit down in her Met Gala 2019 gown and had to stand in the back of a van to get to the red carpet.
The 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' star had been following a strict diet and exercise regime in the run up to the Metropolitan Museum of Art's 2019 Costume Institute Gala in New York City on Monday night (06.05.19) so that her body looked jaw dropping in Thierry Mugler's skin-tight beaded silicone dress on the red carpet last night.
However Kim - who achieved her extra-clinched waist with a custom corset and thigh-length Spanx by French corsetiere, Mr. Pearl - revealed that she would not be at the table "for dinner" because her uber-tight silhouette would only allow her to "half sit", and she would be transported to the prestigious event in a sprinter van with a pole installed for her to hold on too.
Addressing Met Gala chairwoman Anna Wintour, Kim said: "OK, so Anna, if I don't sit down for dinner, now you know why. I'll be walking around mingling, talking, but I cannot hardly sit. I can only like, half sit.
"I'm riding [to the Met] in a sprinter van on the way there with a pole, so I can hold on to the pole."
