Kim Kardashian skips Met Gala after parties to gorge on ‘pizza and donuts’ with Pete Davidson

She admitted to losing 16lbs in just three weeks in order to fit into Marilyn Monroe’s iconic dress for the Met Gala on Monday evening.

So it was no surprise that Kim Kardashian skipped the afterparty scene and was in a hurry to start carb-loading as soon as she had been photographed in the famed garment.

On her way into the fashion benefit, Kim told her pal LaLa Anthony that the plan for the evening was to head straight back to her hotel, the Ritz Carlton in New York City, and have a ‘pizza and donut party’ with her boyfriend Pete Davidson

Then, just an hour or so later, Kim departed the hotel dressed in black and made her way to the airport to catch a flight back to her home in Los Angeles with Pete, 28, and sister Khloe Kardashian by her side. 

And they’re off! Kim Kardashian jets out in black after gorging on ‘pizza and donuts’ at hotel with beau Pete Davidson… following crash diet to lose 16lbs to fit into Marilyn Monroe original for just MINUTES on red carpet

The trio kept their heads down, all wearing shades, as they made their way out of their hotel.

Kim had told her LaLa at the event: ‘Afterwards since I haven’t eaten carbs and sugar in like three weeks we’re eating pizza and donut party back at the hotel.’ 

She also posted snaps of the pizza and donut party on her Instagram Stories.

The 41-year-old reality star would only wear the famed outfit for a matter of minutes, as she immediately changed into a replica once she had walked the red carpet to make sure the original made it back in one piece.

Kim also explained to Vogue that she had another dress option for the evening, a gown that looked exactly like the one Marilyn wore to the Oscars in 1962, q green sequin ensemble by Norman Norell.

‘I have a replica of the dress she wore to the Oscars in 1962,’ Kim told the outlet. ‘I think I might just wear that one to eat pizza in my hotel room.’

Earlier in the night, the star revealed she had to force herself to lose 16lbs in just three weeks in order to make it fit.  

It had already been rumored that Kim would be wearing the famed outfit, which Marilyn wore when she sang Happy Birthday to President John F. Kennedy in 1962, causing quite the scandal at the time.

Meanwhile, SNL funnyman Pete, 28, looked dapper in a classic black suit, skinny tie, designer shades, and finally ditched the Vans sneakers for a pair of smart shoes. 

Marilyn’s glittering beaded gown was designed by Jean Louis, and has been on display at Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Museum in Orlando, FL, after they bought it from Julien’s Auction for $4.81million. 

‘This is Marilyn Monroe’s dress. It’s sixty years old,’ Kim told LaLa Anthony on the red carpet. ‘I had this idea to put it on and try it on. They came with armed guards and gloves. I tried it on and it didn’t fit me. I had to lose 16lbs.’

‘I was determined to fit into it. I did it. I dyed my hair blonde. I haven’t eaten carbs and sugar in three weeks.’ 

It was also revealed that Kim only wore the dress for a matter of minutes, as she changed into a replica of the dress once she had walked the red carpet, to make sure it wasn’t damaged inside the Met Gala party. 

Marilyn – who died at 36 from a drug overdose in 1962 – is said to have paid $1,440 for the custom piece to the designer, and it holds the record for the for the most expensive dress sold at an auction, making it one of the most expensive dresses in the world.

Kim told Vogue how she went on a ruthlessly strict diet deadline in order to slim down and wear the dress to the Met. 

‘I 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,’ she told the outlet. ‘I didn’t starve myself, but I was so strict.’

Marilyn’s unique hourglass figure an exact measurements have been debated for decades, but one dress maker claimed she 5’5″ tall, with a 35″ bust, 22″ waist, and 35″ hips. Her bra size was said to be 36D.

Kim once said of her own measurements: ‘I am a size 27 jeans… My measurements are 38, 26, 39. But remember I am 5’2″ and 1/2 and everyone carries their weight in different places.’

Kim is said to have left her hotel on Monday covered up in a dressing gown, and had barricades set up outside of her hotel to make sure no one saw the outfit before her red carpet appearance.

When she got to the Met Gala, there was a secret dressing room set up for her near the steps where a conservationist from Ripley’s met her to help fit the dress, who was wearing special gloves.

Kim even said that she didn’t wear any body makeup, as she usually would do at such an event, in order to preserve the dress.

KIM KARDASHIAN’S MET GALA LOOKS OVER THE YEARS

Kim Kardashian has made some fairly dramatic statements at the annual Met Gala in New York City over the years.

During her first year at the splashy, star-studded event she had on a tight floral dress that made the most of her very pregnant belly. Later she would be seen in a gold column dress, a silver suit that made her look like a robot, a see-through lace wonder and a dress that came in so tight she had to wear a waist trainer for weeks beforehand.

Last year the star, 41, covered her face with black cloth in a shocking move as she shared she had a full face of makeup on underneath for some reason.

Here is a look back at the eight looks The Kardashians star has tried out during the most important night in fashion.

2013  – GIVENCHY

Her first time at the Met Gala was for PUNK: Chaos to Couture in 2013. She was pregnant with North and wore a floral print dress from Givenchy

The California native said that she was not invited but rather was West’s plus one. Sadly, after the gala she ‘cried’ because she was so insecure about everything, she had said.

‘2103 Riccardo Tisci for Givenchy. I was Kanye’s plus one & so nervous! I didn’t know anyone & I’m sure no one wanted me there lol. I did my own lipstick & the color is so off. I went home & cried after of insecurity but this is one of my fave looks now,’ said the TV vet.

2014  – LANVIN

In 2014, Kim had on a blue strapless Lanvin outfit as Kanye had on black. The theme was Charles James: Beyond Fashion.

She said it was the first time she had been invited on her own.

‘My dress was originally made of this amazing leather with metallic detailing,’ Kim said earlier. ‘But we decided at the last minute to redo it in blue satin.’

2015 – ROBERTO CAVALLI

She wore a very sheer and sexy lace and net gown by Roberto Cavalli for the May 2015 event. Her hair was slicked back and she modeled huge earrings.

And the star posed with husband Kanye West who went with a black suit and boots.

The theme was celebrating China: Through the Looking Glass.

2016 – BALMAIN

Kardashian tried out silver at the Manus x Machina: Fashion In An Age Of Technology in 2016.  

She wore Balmain, a shimmery silver dress that looked like a futuristic gown with a slit up the side. Husband Kanye West was in the same designer.

She said: ‘2016 Olivier Rousteing for Balmain. I was back to insecure this year because I hadn’t lost all of my baby weight. Big mistake to bleach the brows but Kanye looked so good this year with those blue eyes! It was super controversial that he wore denim.’

Earlier she had noted: ‘I thought Balmain was the perfect choice for me and Kanye, especially. I think Kanye’s look is a little bit more downplayed with the denim mixed with all the Balmain bling.’

2017 – VIVIENNE WESTWOOD

This one in 2017 was celebrating the opening of Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garcons: Art of the In-Between. 

The Selfish author had on a white Vivienne Westwood off-the-shoulder dress with no jewelry and strappy heels.

 In the bus ride to the event she had to stand up so the dress would not wrinkle and she said she was already sweating and had to use the bathroom because she was so nervous.

The daughter of Kris Jenner said, ‘2017 Vivienne Westwood. This was my first year going solo. I was so nervous to go by myself I almost threw up on the way & I had to pee every second.. I was FaceTiming my sisters to meet up at the top of the stairs. Vivienne made me this beautiful dress from her archive.’

2018 – VERSACE

Kim Kardashian attends the Heavenly Bodies: Fashion & The Catholic Imagination Costume Institute Gala in 2018.

She said this gold mesh Versace dress fit her like a ‘glove.’

Kardashian added, ‘I knew exactly what I wanted and was most confident this year. 90’s, chainmail, sexy and simple.’

 2019 – THIERRY MUGLER

Kardashian was in a wet look for Camp: Notes on Fashion in 2019.

She had to wear a waist trainer to get her midsection as small as possible to pull off this Thierry Mugler dress.

The look was supposed to be ‘wet’ which is why she had crystals that looked like raindrops coming off of her. Her hair also looked wet as she had oiled skin.

2021 – BALENCIAGA

Kim shocked fans when she wore a head to toe black look that covered her famous face.

Later the red carpet fixture said that she was fully made up under that face sock which seemed like a lot of effort for no payoff.

Turns out, it was not her favorite move. 

‘I fought against it. I was like, I don’t know how I could wear the mask. Why would I want to cover my face?’ she told Vogue this year.

‘But Demna [Gvasalia, Balenciaga’s creative director] and the team were like, “This is a costume gala. This is not a Vanity Fair party where everyone looks beautiful. There’s a theme and you have to wear the mask. That is the look.”‘
