Kim Kardashian’s Crash Diet To Fit Into Marilyn Monroe’s Dress For Met Gala Causes Major Backlash Online

Lili Reinhart was seriously frustrated with those who went to extreme lengths for Monday night’s Met Gala.

The “Riverdale” actor shared a series of rants on social media where she called out the “stupid, harmful celebrities” who emphasized the dietary measures they took just to “fit in a f***ing dress.”

“So wrong. So f***ed on 100s of levels,” Reinhart wrote in her Instagram story. “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 and disgusting.”

She didn’t mention any name, in particular, however, her comments have been interpreted as a jab at Kim Kardashian, who attended the event in the vintage gown worn by Marilyn Monroe to President John F. Kennedy’s birthday celebration in 1962.

Kardashian told Vogue she lost 16 pounds in order to fit into the gown, which was on loan from the Ripley’s Believe It or Not! museum and cannot be altered.

“I tried it on and it didn’t fit me. I said, ‘Give me three weeks,'” she explained. “I was determined to fit [into] it. I haven’t had carbs or sugar in about three weeks.”

In the days since the Met Gala, Kardashian’s remarks have drawn a flurry of criticism, with many calling her dieting “extremely dangerous.”

“You should not be celebrated for losing 16 pounds in 3 weeks,” Yahoo Canada lifestyle editor Elizabeth Di Filippo tweeted. “You should not share details on how you unhealthfully lost weight with a major publication.”

Fashion journalist Amy Odell added: “If that’s not the regressive messaging this industry has tried desperately to distance from, what is?”

This topic is especially important to Lili Reinhart who has been outspoken about her own struggles with body image.

“Reminder to myself, and to all — you don’t need a flat or perfectly toned stomach to wear a crop top,” the actor tweeted in March. “These ‘summer body’ trends are toxic. Your body is ready for summer no matter what it looks like.”

But not all of it was supportive

Actress Lili Reinhart seemed to be really appalled by it

After Reinhart’s remarks made headlines, she clarified that she’d chosen to speak up “because I don’t see enough people with large platforms calling out toxic behavior in our industry.”

“Some people will never understand where I’m coming from and that’s okay,” she said.

She also highlighted the importance of speaking up

Reinhart wasn’t the only one who had a problem with Kim’s crash diet. Nichola Ludlam-Raine of the British Dietetic Association thinks portraying such a regime was “irresponsible.”

Furthermore, Ludlam-Raine said it would be impossible to lose 16 pounds of fat in three weeks.

Much of it would have been water and glycogen, a form of stored carbohydrates, lost when someone stopped eating sugar and carbohydrates but regained when they resumed.

Kardashian’s comments were potentially “dangerous, especially to vulnerable people” and sent a message that was “completely wrong”, Ludlam-Raine explained.

“It’s really irresponsible because a lot of people will be reading and watching her, especially people with eating disorders, or young women, thinking that it is possible, or it is needed, to lose such a dramatic amount of weight in a relatively short amount of time, when most health experts recommend losing around 1-2lb a week,” Ludlam-Raine said.

“It’s not a sustainable way of living. When you cut out sugars, research shows that we end up psychologically craving it more – and what that can lead to is a binge-restrict cycle.”

Lili’s words really struck a chord with people

“She said afterward she was going to have a doughnut or something like that. We want to pull people away from this binge-restrict cycle, and actually show people that they can have the food that you love in moderation whilst achieving whatever health or weight goals you have in mind,” Ludlam-Raine continued.

Ultimately, it’s not about sending your body on a rollercoaster ride but rather finding the right balance. Healthy eating for your body and your soul. “It sounds like she’s done neither over those three weeks prior to the Met Gala,” Ludlam-Raine said.

“People shouldn’t source their nutrition advice from celebrities.”

The weight loss issue aside, the difference of elegance and class between Kim Kardashian and Marilyn Monroe is staggering. The dress on Kim just looks plain and ordinary.

Right? The bleached hair looked awful, to be honest. She could have worn a wig... And the dress did not look good on her. It was ill-fitting, the colour did not compliment her at all, very bland in general

What in the world is happening to BoredPanda, a site that I used to love for it's fun artwork and quirky, feel-good articles? It is degenerating into nothing more than a "high-brow" version of Buzzfeed with its slew of celebrity articles, re-posted content content from Reddit, and "Am I the A*****e?" articles. I used to go to BoredPanda to escape the "celebrity onslaught". Can we please stop giving the Kartrashian cult a platform? They have contributed nothing in the way of art and culture. If we stopped posting about this woman constantly, perhaps she would actually fade into the background for a bit.

Comparing KK's behavior to that of an actor losing weight for a movie is ridiculous. Actors start preparing for a role like that MONTHS prior, with dieticians and nutritionists by their side. They don't just "throw out carbs" w***y nilly. Simply because a part in a movie doesn't just require you to walk down a red carpet, but to be on a set up to 10 hours a day, remember lines, run around etc. You can't do that if all you did was basically not eat for three weeks. Also: KK should have NEVER been given access to the original dress. Wearing a replica is paying resect to the original. Wearing the actual original is the opposite of that.

Supposedly she wore the fur because the dress could not be closed completely in the back. I didn't find any shots from the back which is odd because they usually post so many angles, particularly that one. I thought she look ridiculous and saw more of Amber Rose cosplay than MM.

Have you ever read anything about any of the Kardashian's and thought, "Wow, what a well thought out and intelligent action?" I mean, this is from the family that had MOM shop around a sex tape, because "Everyone makes sex tapes with their boyfriend." Uh, no we don't, and if I did, for damn sure my mom would be the last one to see it. STOP GIVING THEM ATTENTION!

There is really only one person who looked stunning in that dress - MARILYN MONROE. It was made for her and only her. She did not wear spandex underwear and was not afraid to show that she had a slight tummy. No one must ever wear that dress again and most definitely not a kardashian. She cheapened one of the most beautiful - inside and out - in an industry that chews real people up and then spits on them.

The entire culture of 'celebrity' is toxic from this family to the Depp/Heard circus. They may have wealth and fame but it strikes me it's a miserable existence of constantly needing to divulge anything and everything to remain relevant. Just my opinion but the public very much feeds this from buying the magazines, clicking and watching , that's what feeds the media circus. Anyway here I am commenting, time to disappear back to my normal pleasant life. My best advice don't buy tickets to the circus !

This was handled rather inappropriately. This kind of dieting is very unhealthy for the body and for the skin (ironically will lead to a cosmetic thing of wrinkles). In addition as a celebrity this is a very terrible especially if people look up to Kim. A very bad role model here. If ya want to adjust one's physical disposition healthily for health or other personal reasons, plan months to years in advanced to ya' can eat well & reach your personal goal. Of course prior to this is to speak with your physician so it can be done safely (acclimation of the body and mind). For example if you plan to cut alcohol don't go cold turkey as it can be fatal! Be educated and honest with your physician on your goals. That sort of thing.

Wasn't Marilyn Monroe supposed to be a little "thicc" for her time? And if so, how small were women back then if a Kardashian has to lose weight to fit into a dress belonging to a woman considered to be bigger than average?

Lavender Oak

Marylin was about a size 8 in modern clothing, in her time she was average size. She was considered thick by people in the 80s,90s, etc looking back at her compared to the thin standard of their time. Supermodels up until recently were size 0. Kim is very thin except her fake donkey butt and fat injections. She was probably trying to reduce her cartoonish enhancements rather than be a smaller person. Proportions rather than weight were the real issue.

Honestly, if it makes her feel good then good for her, people love to hate on the kardashiens cause it is easy but maybe I'm just weird but there seems to be bigger issues. Also this comment section is filled with people slandering Kims appearance, what happened to all the body positivity stuff and how this is a safe space, bunch of hypocrites really

Lavender Oak

Would you say the same if it was heroin instead of starvation? "If it makes her feel good then good for her"? You're really shallow. Losing weight in itself is not the issue and if that's what you got from this you're not intelligent enough to share a meaningful opinion.

I don't care about Kim Kardashian, but I don't hate her either. I'd be more pissed about her wearing the same exact 60yo dress from what's considered an icon?? (if I cared about that kind of stuff). If she wanna lose 16 pounds or 20 or gain them, that's her problem. I found scarier the sentence that affirms that there are people that actually look up to her as some sort of role model. Even if she didn't lose 16 pounds in 3 weeks to fit in a dress, it's still kind of crazy that people look up to her in any other sense.

I have never in my life felt like defending Kim Kardashian before but I have to say her public embrace of her natural voluptuosness means that it's a bit unreasonable to be going after her for 'toxic' levels of weight loss. We all know Marilyn Monroe wasn't skinny and it is crystal clear from the photos of Kim at the Met Ball (however boring people think she looks) that she's in no way too thin, or even approaching too thin. She's not dehydrated either, it would show on her face if she was. Most likely her a*s was too big for the dress because that's where she's kind of out on her own body-shape wise.

16 lbs in three weeks is what they're going after. Kim is not natural. Marilyn was taller than Kim and sewn into that dress she embraced her naturalness and going thought to be seen as intelligent everything that Kim is not. She should've never touched that dress.

I know we as a society have this idea of what the perfect body is and if youre someone in the public eye you should be a certain way for the next generation and so on.. But really we are all so flawed with our own perfect imperfections that looking to this actress or any other that has a job in front of a camera to be what we think they should be is just never gonna happen. A good self image starts in yourself and in your home to your children and trust me. We all screw it up. But live and learn. Bad decisions set the bar for better ones. Lets worry about who we are as individuals and less about what everyone else's mistakes. Hi. I'm Katie. I screw up on the daily but I strive to do better. Its really all we can do.

Why is it so wrong that she wanted to fit in a dress? People need to stop being triggered by everything... nowhere in the interview she said, that it's a good idea to starve yourself to fit into something. She wanted to wear the dress, so she did it. Jesus f*cking christ. I'm really close to just quitting the internet forever, this is getting too ridiculous.

Healthy weight loss though is at most 2lb a week, this is nearly triple that amount.

What she does with her body and her image is entirely up to her. These celebrities live in a completely different reality than we do. I have to remind myself of this anytime these wealthy people are mentioned. The fact of the matter is they can do anything and everything they want without thinking of the repercussions of their actions. There are no consequences or even punishment for the things they do. The consequences of their actions end up affecting us in a negative way. It ends up influencing our lives greatly. Impacting us in a bad way while they live untouched from any negative impact. Other than some bad publicity and then it's off to the next thing they wish to do. When you have that much money, power, and influence you are untouchable to say the least. I think as regular folks we have definitely had a hand in contributing to the image and lives these celebrities have. Putting them on a pedestal and worshipping them regardless of the harm they may cause. That's the way we've made it and they know it. It's heartbreaking and infuriating at times and I don't see it changing anytime in the future. So for those of us that do see what's happening. The best we can do is be mindful of it all and make dang sure we are being accountable and not causing harm like so many famous people already do. Because it's a s**t show on this planet right now and the last thing any of us should want to do is add to the mess that is humanity/mankind.

I’m more outraged that she’s wearing Marilyn Monroe’s dress. It’s super disrespectful to Marilyn’s memory. She could have damaged it. Smh.

The problem isn't Kim, it's the people who worship her. Stupid people have stupid lives.

The people in here worshipping Marilyn aren't any better... that's the real unhealthy part. They are worshipping fame whores... two women that hate/hated themselves so much they would do anything to have the public love them.

I don’t give a fat rat’s a*s about Kim Kardashian going on a crash diet. She can starve herself or stuff herself and I could care less. But the potential damage to Marilyn Monroe’s dress concerns me. I’m still in shock that she was able to desecrate, sorry, get it in the first place, and not just have a copy made—-not to mention the fact that she’s fooling herself by thinking that wearing that dress somehow makes her on par with Monroe. She’s f*****g deluded. The conservators who let her use the dress will have one helluva time getting the stink of Kardashian a*s off it, not to mention it’s now tainted by association with her. I mean, Marilyn must be spinning in her grave so hard she’s going to pop right out of it in a fury and stomp the s**t out of her—-a Herculean feat, but I think Marilyn’s ghost could do it.

She only wore the actual dress for 10 minutes for the Vogue shoot. The rest of the time she *was * wearing a copy. I'm more concerned about the real damage done to actual people by copying her weight loss than damage to some stupid bit of fabric.

It's a shame they had to burn the dress after she wore it. #FilthyKardashianWhores

When men do this for movies, and talk about it no one complains. We hear about it all the time, and they are praised for it. Christian Bale, Matthew McConaughey, Chris Pratt, the list goes on. Why are we celebrating the men who do this, but when a woman uses the same eating plan to do something she wants to do we suddenly cry foul?

We should make sure that no one does this.

Its her body, its her perogative to lose the weight how she wants. Its not impossible to do it healthy either. Maybe don't get your girls to idolise these celebrities? I'm more annoyed that she trotted out in a dress that should have been in a museum, all for some gala. Seems tacky and disrespectful. At least she didn't alter it though.

It's Kim Kardashian's body and she can do what she wants, but it's Lili Reinhart's brain, and she can think what she wants.

She should be applauded, as an empowered woman for achieving this goal! Like her Mom-Dad Bruce-Caitlyn, this is a woman who knows what she wants and knows how to get it. I think I can speak for women everywhere in saying that this empowers them!

The weight loss issue aside, the difference of elegance and class between Kim Kardashian and Marilyn Monroe is staggering. The dress on Kim just looks plain and ordinary.

Right? The bleached hair looked awful, to be honest. She could have worn a wig... And the dress did not look good on her. It was ill-fitting, the colour did not compliment her at all, very bland in general

First off, ignore the freaking Kardashians. Please. Second, there was serious spandex involved under that dress for KimK. Not a single wubble anywhere? Third, way to insult Marilyn Monroe. Geez.

I'm not trying to support starving yourself or anything, but the more attention we give to these celebrities the more damage will be done. Besides, who takes dieting advice from rich, fake celebrities? Also, I am starting to this Bored Panda is finally turning into Buzzfeed II. Come on.

Teens and tweens, and to growing extent weens. They are the ones looking to celebrities for life advice.

What in the world is happening to BoredPanda, a site that I used to love for it's fun artwork and quirky, feel-good articles? It is degenerating into nothing more than a "high-brow" version of Buzzfeed with its slew of celebrity articles, re-posted content content from Reddit, and "Am I the A*****e?" articles. I used to go to BoredPanda to escape the "celebrity onslaught". Can we please stop giving the Kartrashian cult a platform? They have contributed nothing in the way of art and culture. If we stopped posting about this woman constantly, perhaps she would actually fade into the background for a bit.

BoredPanda is going the way of Cracked. Only clickbait. Plus 90% of the posts are just the top posts of different subreddits.

Comparing KK's behavior to that of an actor losing weight for a movie is ridiculous. Actors start preparing for a role like that MONTHS prior, with dieticians and nutritionists by their side. They don't just "throw out carbs" w***y nilly. Simply because a part in a movie doesn't just require you to walk down a red carpet, but to be on a set up to 10 hours a day, remember lines, run around etc. You can't do that if all you did was basically not eat for three weeks. Also: KK should have NEVER been given access to the original dress. Wearing a replica is paying resect to the original. Wearing the actual original is the opposite of that.
