Kim Kardashian at the Met Gala: wasp waist and a strange cardigan

At this year’s Met Gala in New York, Kim Kardashian wore a creation by John Galliano for Maison Margiela and, as she is known for, was the talk of the town. One of the reasons was her uncomfortable-looking wasp waist.

Hardly anyone is as good at creating a viral moment as Kim Kardashian. The entrepreneur appeared at the Met Gala 2022 in a legendary Marilyn Monroe dress, which she had to be squeezed into at the time. And this year too, Kardashian dominated online discussions with her outfit. The creation by John Galliano for Maison Margiela, which was custom-made especially for Kardashian, raised many questions there. The most pressing of all may be: How can Kardashian breathe in this outfit?

Designed by Galliano, the floral bustier (in keeping with this year’s theme, “The Garden of Time”) was laced so tightly that Kardashian’s wasp waist looked more like a Barbie than the shape of a real human being. “Kim Kardashian once again steps out in a look that does nothing but show off how artificially small she can make her waist,” commented one user on X, formerly Twitter. “Next year Kim Kardashian will slim her waist so thin for the Met Gala that she will appear in two separate pieces that float on top of each other like magnets,” wrote another.

An Instagram user criticized the 43-year-old for once again displaying an unattainable beauty standard. “It’s irresponsible to create a dangerous standard with her waist-to-hip ratio. It’s impossible for her to maintain that small waist without hurting herself,” the user said. “She can’t even walk! Something like that shouldn’t be called fashion,” another criticized the look on Instagram.

Strange bolero cardigan

Not being able to walk hasn’t been an exclusion criterion for a look for Kardashian in the past. In fall 2022, footage of her struggling to walk up a flight of stairs went viral because her Dolce and Gabbana creation was so narrow.

But it wasn’t just the reality TV luminary’s wasp waist that caused a debate, but also her bolero cardigan, which Kardashian always adjusted on the red carpet. This made her appearance seem a bit unnatural and cramped and it gave the impression that the little cardigan wasn’t planned that way. “I think she damaged the dress and a sweater was the only way to hide it,” one user wrote on Instagram.

In fact, John Galliano sent his models down the runway in similar looks at the Margiela show earlier this year. Kardashian’s cardigan was hardly a mistake.
