Kim Kardashian has sparked a shock reaction for her astonishingly tiny waist in a silver corset. The 43-year-old reality star – who is known for her curvaceous figure and bodacious behind – showcased a wild body transformation in custom Maison Margiela by John Galliano on the star-studded red carpet of the Met Gala 2024 in New York City.

John Galliano, creative director of Maison Margiela, fashioned Kim – who attended his recent Artisanal show and sat in the front row – the stunning dress.  

Just a day after Kim was booed at the Tom Brady Netflix Roast, many took to social media to react to the wild look as one wrote: ‘how many ribs did Kim get removed????’

Her tiny torso look featured a shiny metallic silver corset which flowed into a sheer lacy skirt that showed off her legs. She teamed the strapless number with matching shiny silver platform heels.

One interesting fashion choice that the A-lister made was wrapping herself in a grey knit cropped sweater which felt a bit disjointed from the rest of the look.

Kim wore her newly-dyed platinum blonde locks down in a middle-part which showed off her dark roots.

Her make-up was complementary to her face and topped off with a swipe of shiny nude lip. 

However, the thing that was most talked about on social media was her tiny waist. 

One X (formally Twitter) user wrote:  ‘Jesus, she’s gonna be in the hospital by the end of the night. Did they remove a rib or 2?!?!?’

Others fed into the rib removal theory as one said: ‘Did she have a rib removed? Good Lordt.’

Another made referenced to the body transformations the SKIMS founder has undergone for previous Met Galas.

They wrote: ‘Kim Kardashian does it again, I wonder how she breathes with that #MetGala’ 

They seemed to be referencing one of Kim’s most iconic looks at the gala when she looked impossibly skinny to wear Marilyn Monroe’s classic dress in 2022.

Months later in an episode of The Kardashians which aired in November, she even called herself a ‘shapeshifter’ as she did all that she could to fit into the frock.

She tried on a replica of the dress Marilyn wore in 1962 to serenade then-President John F. Kennedy on his 45th birthday on the episode.

Kim said: ‘If this does not fit me, I can’t even try the original. So I’ve Googled her measurements, I’m looking at my measurements.’

She backed her shapeshifting claims as she said that the width of her shoulders would allow her to ‘squeeze into anything.’ 

The mother-of-four said: ‘No one trusted us; for years, they would never send samples. And then once I would get to Paris and try on the samples, they would be like, “Oh, wait, she actually fits in our stuff.” 

‘So I don’t know how to convince the guy who owns the original Marilyn dress that I’m a shapeshifter.’

Kim kept a low profile while returning to The Ritz-Carlton hotel after the event on Monday. A bodyguard held a white towel in front of the star as she attempted to shield her impossibly thin waist. 

The Costume Institute’s spring exhibition falls on the first Monday in May every year and is held at New York City’s Metropolitan Museum of Art.
