Kim Kardashian caused controversy when she wore one of Marilyn Monroe's iconic historical dresses to the 2022 Met Gala, and Kardashian's tactics to fit into the gown drew especially strong ire for promoting unhealthy dieting practices. Now, Kardashian is revealing another reason why her Met Gala crash diet may not have been wise.
Kardshian lost 16 pounds in three weeks to fit into Monroe's gown; the SKIMS founder reportedly wore a sauna suit twice a day and told outlets that she stopped eating carbs and sugar. The biggest problem arose when Kardashian broke her mostly vegan and plant-based diet and began eating meat again as part of her Met Gala efforts.
In an interview with Allure, Kardashian said that once she began eating meat, "Psoriasis broke out over my body and I got psoriatic arthritis so I couldn't really move my hands. It was really painful, and I had to go to a rheumatologist who put me on a steroid. I was freaking out. I cut out the meat again, and it's calmed down."
Psoriasis is a skin disease that causes dry and painful rashes, and Kardashian has been open about her struggles with it on social media and television. Despite her most recent scare with psoriatic arthritis, Kardashian did end up fitting into Monroe's dress; whether all the strife was worth it or not is a matter of public debate.
