- Kim Kardashian shares a throwback clip on Instagram, wearing a recreation of her famous Mr. Pearl Met Gala corset
- Kim wore the design underneath a beaded Mugler number, with the corset almost as memorable as the dress itself
The Kardashian sisters are no strangers to waist trainers and figure-hugging shapewear, but the undergarment Kim Kardashian wore to the 2019 Met Gala is perhaps the most famous of all.
Why? Because while Kim looked fierce in her wet-look Mugler dress, the star revealed that the corset she wore with the outfit was practically unbearable.
If you don't believe us check out the BTS video from her fitting where it took three men to fasten the back of the corset. Oh, and prior to the event Kim reportedly had to take breathing lessons from the designer.
With this year's Gala postponed indefinitely Kim seems to be feeling a bit nostalgic, sharing a throwback video of her wearing the undergarment on Instagram.
In the caption, the A-lister reveals that the exact corset went missing on the night (presumably because Kimmy couldn't wait to take it off), so she flew over to London to have the piece remade for her archive. Now that is dedication.
"Just found this in my phone from my special trip to London last year to meet w Mr. Pearl," writes Kim.
"I wore a corset like this for the Met Ball for my @manfredthierrymugler Camp look but the corset was misplaced that night 🤦🏻♀️ and I want it so badly preserved for my archive that I flew to London to have another made for the archive."
The footage itself shows Kim wearing the leotard-style corset as she serves some fierce poses in the mirror.
It is just me, or is anyone else watching this on repeat? I just can't get over how teeny tiny her waist is. Like, HOW??
Kim adds that the 2020 Met might be postponed but she's still planning some big fashion moments later this year, writing "We also might have started making a few more looks including my special 40th bday look. Can’t wait to show you the LOOKSSSS we’ve been cooking up."
Kim turns 40 on 21st October 2020, so marks the dates in your diaries folks because it sounds like it's gonna be a goodie.
