Kim Kardashian's 2019 Met Gala Corset Was 'Misplaced That Night' So She Had a Replica Made
The jaw dropped when Kim Kardashian West hit the red carpet with a super pinched waist at the 2019 Met Gala, thanks to an old-school corset designed by legendary French couturier Mister Pearl. The corset pulled together her special "dripping wet" Thierry Mugler dress, which is already considered one of the most striking looks in the history of the Met Gala. But, according to Kardashian West, the iconic piece disappeared just a few hours after she wore it on the red carpet.
The star revealed that she made a "special trip" to London last year to visit Mister Pearl after the corset he created for her was lost on the night of the Met Gala.
"I just found this on my phone from my special trip to London last year to meet Mr. Pearl. I was wearing a corset like this for the Met Ball for my @ manthththryrymugler camp look, but the corset was in it Night shifted? " "Kardashian West, 39, wrote on Instagram next to a video wearing the corset.

"We may also have started doing a few more looks, including my special 40-day look. I can't wait to show you the LOOKSSSS we came up with," she said.
After the world saw how tiny Kardashian West's waist was on the red carpet at the 2019 Met Gala, many couldn't believe how she squeezed into the corset and dress, but she showed everyone how it was in a Vogue video behind was made against the scenes.
It took three assistants to strap her into the body before Kardashian West could slip into her mini dress dripping from crystals. Though she loved the way she looked in design, the star said that she couldn't move freely and sitting was a struggle.

"Okay, Anna, if I don't sit down for dinner, you now know why. I'll have a conversation, but I can hardly sit," said Kardashian West in the video and turned to Vogue's editor-in-chief Anna Wintour. "I can only do half sit."
But while she looked perfectly composed as she posed on the steps of the mead, the star revealed that she "had never felt such a pain in my life inside".
"I need to show you pictures of the aftermath of the episodes when I removed them - the depressions on my back and stomach," she said in an interview with WSJ Magazine.
