Lili Reinhart has revealed that she doesn't think she'll get an invitation to 2023's Meta Gala after she called out Kim Kardashian for losing weight just so she'd be able to fit into a dress. ICYMI, the 42-year-old reality star stepped onto the red carpet back in May in none other than Marilyn Monroe's iconic "Happy Birthday Mr President" dress. You know, the one covered in crystals that the Hollywood icon wore in 1962 to serenade John F. Kennedy? Yep, that's the one.
Speaking to W Magazine about the critique she made, the Look Both Ways actor said: "That was fun. But after going again this year, I don't think I'll be invited back. I said a certain something about a certain person in a certain dress."
For some context, the SKIMS founder admitted that she lost 16lbs in three weeks just so she'd be able to wear the dress to fashion's biggest night of the year. While on the red carpet, she even told Vogue about the lengths she went to in order to prepare herself, revealing: "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."
"To openly admit to starving yourself for the sake of the Met Gala. When you know very well that millions of young men and women are looking up to you and listening to your every word," she said in an Instagram Stories post back in May. "The ignorance is other-worldly disgusting."
While Lili didn't mention Kim by name, it was obvious who she was alluding to. During her W Magazine interview, the 26-year-old even admitted that she doesn't regret her words. "I have always wanted to stand for something. And while I don't like it if one comment by me turns into 17 articles in People magazine, I never overthink what I post. It has to be a true representation of how I feel. And I would say that whether I had 100 followers or 100 million."
