I Cannot Believe Kim K Lost 16 Pounds In 21 Days In Order To Fit Into Marilyn Monroe's Dress For The Met Gala

by Ricardo Johnson

Kim plans on eating pizza and donuts the second she takes off Marilyn's dress.

Tonight is the MET GALA! The theme is Gilded Glamour, and the stars showed up to stunt!

E!

One of those stars was Kim Kardashian (with Pete Davidson on her arm).

Kim arrived in a GORGEOUS nude-and-diamond dress that may look familiar if you look close enough...

If you're thinking, Wait, didn't Marilyn Monroe wear that dress? Then, you would be correct!

This is the dress that Marilyn wore while she sang "Happy Birthday, Mr. President" to the late JFK. 

And by "wear," I mean WEAR! This isn't a replica. This is the same dress.

E!

In fact, when Kim first tried the dress on a few weeks ago, it didn't fit her, but in an interview with La La Anthony on the Met Gala carpet, Kim revealed that she lost 16 pounds in about three weeks in order to fit into the dress.

E!

SIXTEEN! POUNDS!

E!

That's the size of two newborn babies...or one overweight cat. 

Mind you, Kim K — nor ANYONE — shouldn't have to lose weight to fit into a garment!
