What was Kim Kardashian’s ‘wet dress’ at the Met Gala?

The theme for the 2019 Met Gala was "Camp: Notes on Fashion." Camp, by fashion definition, is an "aesthetic style and sensibility that regards something as appealing because of its bad taste and ironic value."

Designed by Thierry Mugler, Kim's skin-tight dress was designed to appear as if she had just stepped out of the ocean.

The dress, which was made out of latex and adorned with beads to resemble water droplets, took eight months to complete according to W Magazine.

The mom-of-four wore a tight, custom-made corset by famed corset maker Mr Pearl to execute the illusion of a tiny waist.

Her hair was waved and laid with gel to further add to the 'wet' look.

Who designed Kim Kardashian's 'wet dress'?

Mugler hadn't designed a collection of his own before 2003, but he stepped out of retirement to design the gown for the reality star.

"He envisioned me as this California girl stepping out of the ocean, wet, dripping,” Kim said when interviewed by Vogue on the Met red carpet.

The dress received rave reviews from fashion critics.

In a trailer for Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Kim said that her dress was so tight that she struggled to go to the bathroom.

She said that she could hardly sit down, and that she would've needed to enlist the help of her sisters if there was a bladder emergency.

"If I gotta pee, it's a problem," Kim said.

"Can you just wear a diaper?" someone in the room joked in the clip.

"I think if it's an emergency, I would pee my pants and then have my sister wipe my leg up," she said, completely straight-faced. "I'm not even joking. She can wipe my leg up."

What did people say about it on Twitter?

Social media reacted with awe at Kim's stunning look when she debuted it on the Met Gala red carpet.

"i think about kim kardashian’s waist in that mr mugler’s dripping wet dress 24/7," one user said at the time.

"Your make up matches not only your skintone but also the dress so well that s*** is crazy. And your hair looks wet, probably isn’t. it’s probably magic. Well done," another said.

"This look is too good! Could you please dress a whole year in latex, plastic and wet hair! Give us what we didn’t know we needed," one wrote.

One fan pointed out the similarities between Kim's dress and an old Marilyn Monroe look.

Did Kim Kardashian file for divorce from Kanye West?

Kim shocked fans when she filed for divorce for husband of six years on February 19, 2021.

TMZ has reported the KUWTK star is asking for joint legal and physical custody of the couple's four kids.

Together, they share daughters North, 7, Chicago, 3, and sons Saint, 5, and one-year-old baby boy Psalm.

A source close to the beauty mogul previously told The Sun their divorce has been "all amicable" while adding "there’s no drama" as they're set to divide their $2Billion fortune.

Kim and Kanye's divorce is set to play out on her family's new Hulu show, The Sun Online can exclusively reveal.

 Kanye, 43, who has made several appearance on KUWTK since 2013, is "very unlikely" to be featured in any scenes.

Sources close to the family have revealed: "Of course Kim's divorce will play out on camera, she knows that people will be watching for any drama and it would be weird if she didn't mention the split at all," they added.

"Fans want to hear direct from Kim about her life, and she knows that's why people will be tuning in.

"On KUWTK, Kanye had a say about what Kim could and couldn't say about their lives, but with this new contract, she's free to do exactly what she wants."
