Kardashian, 41, appeared on the Met Gala red carpet wearing Marilyn Monroe's original dress that she wore while singing 'Happy Birthday' to President John F. Kennedy in 1962.
While speaking with Vogue, Kardashian revealed the dress did not fit her when she first tried it on prompting her to lose 16 pounds in three weeks by wearing a sauna suit twice a day, running on the treadmill, cutting out all sugar and all carbs, and eat veggies and protein.

“I didn’t starve myself, but I was so strict," Kardashian told Vogue. "It was such a challenge."
However, Kardashian's determination to lose weight to wear a dress inspired some people to speak out against the unhealthy habits the 41-year-old businesswoman was promoting.
Actress Lili Reinhart posted on her Instagram story calling Kardashian's statements ignorant and "disgusting".
People on social media expressed their disappointment in Kardashian promoting her weight loss in order to wear the dress for a few hours.
