Turns out Kim Kardashian’s wedding to Kanye West was only the second most “nerve-wracking” moment of her life. The first? Well, that was this year’s Met Gala back in May.
In a new teaser for the new season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Kim K is getting ready for the yearly event, which is a benefit for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute. But it’s also one of the biggest celebrity fashion shows of the year. It’s why you wouldn’t blame Kardashian for being a little nervous about what to wear to the camp-themed gala. And no, we’re not talking tents, we’re talking taste so bad it’s good.
“I don’t know why I have such anxiety for the Met. I feel this sense of pressure, responsibility,” Kardashian confesses to the camera. Later, she admits, “This is probably as nerve-racking as my wedding. I don’t know why I get so nervous for the Met, maybe even more so, just because there’s pictures from every single angle.” After all, after her 2014 wedding to Kanye, she had a say in which photos were shared with the public.
In the end, Kardashian wore a Sophia Loren-inspired look from Thierry Mugler. It was the designer’s first creation in 20 years, which added extra pressure. “It’s such a full-circle dream come true,” she said. “But it’s a huge responsibility because he, I’m sure, after not designing for 20 years, wants it to be something magical and special and new and I just want it to be perfect.”
