Lili Reinhart thinks that the Met Gala in 2022 could have been the last time she went. The Riverdale actress said she doesn’t think she’ll be invited back to fashion’s biggest night because she criticised the way Kim Kardashian lost weight to fit into one of Marilyn Monroe’s most famous dresses.
In an interview that came out on Oct. 26, she told W Magazine, “That was fun.” “But after going again this year, I don’t think I’ll be invited back. I said a certain something about a certain person in a certain dress.”
Kim, who is 42 years old, said at the May 2 event that she lost 16 pounds in three weeks so she could fit into the dress Marilyn wore when she sang “Happy Birthday, Mr. President” to John F. Kennedy in 1962. The dress was made by Bob Mackie.
The founder of SKIMS told Vogue on the red carpet that she would wear a sauna suit twice a day, run on a treadmill, stop eating sugar and carbs, and only eat the cleanest vegetables and protein to get ready for the event.
But Kim said, “I didn’t starve myself, but I was so strict.” Lili, who is 26, didn’t agree with the Kardashians star’s extreme dieting to fit into a dress.
The Look Both Ways actress reflected on her decision to call out stars who partake in these methods—without mentioning Kim by name—in a May 3 Instagram Stories post, explaining, “To openly admit to starving yourself for the sake of the Met Gala. When you know very well that millions of young men and women are looking up to you and listening to your every word. The ignorance is other-worldly disgusting.”
Lili does not regret anything she said about Kim’s extreme diet at the famous Vogue event, even though she is no longer there.
“I have always wanted to stand for something,” she told W Magazine. “And while I don’t like it if one comment by me turns into 17 articles in People magazine, I never overthink what I post. It has to be a true representation of how I feel. And I would say that whether I had 100 followers or 100 million.”
