Life & Style can exclusively reveal that the seven-months-pregnant star, 32, decided to wear a floor-length, bright-patterned Givenchy to her first Met Gala just hours before hitting the red carpet with her beau, Kanye West, 35.
“She had the Givenchy severely altered at the last minute on orders of her new stylist,” a fashion insider tells Life & Style.
And why’s that? Her growing body.
“She’s gained a lot of weight in her arms and her stylist has told her she should not show them off,” the insider says. “So her dress now has sleeves when it was sleeveless before.”
The source also says that the stylist has taken off a belt structure that was making her look cumbersome.
It’s something that’s not sitting well with her boyfriend.
Continues the source, “Kanye is annoyed, as the dress is by his best friend Riccardo Tisci at Givenchy, and he feels embarrassed that Kim is messing with a beautiful piece of art.”
Another insider also tells Life & Style that “Kim wanted everything to be perfect when it came to her dress, so she had three seamstresses.”
Getting ready for her Gala debut hasn’t been so easy for the expectant mom, who’s faced harsh criticism for her pregnancy style.
As Life & Style reported last week, Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour — who famously snubbed the E! reality star from attending last year — agreed she could go because of Kanye. Since he is performing, he was allowed to invite her.
Before deciding to wear Givenchy to fashion’s biggest night of the year, Kim — who is due to give birth in July — was having a hard time trying to fit into her original dress. “It had to be modified five times for her growing frame,” a Kardashian pal told Life & Style late last week.
We highly doubt that Kim would have made ANY changes to her dress without Kanye’s approval but they both really should be embarrassed by that dress. It looks like a green house threw up all over her body.
