Whether you're watched every second of Keeping Up With the Kardashians or you only have a vague idea of who they are, you probably know that Kim Kardashian is one sexy woman. From her very first days in the public eye, Kardashian has oozed sensual beauty, and her fans can't get enough of it.
Her husband, Kanye West, has long loved her sultry style too. But recently he’s been headed in a different direction, and it seems to be causing some friction.
Kim Kardashian’s sexy dress at the 2019 Met Gala
The theme for the Met Gala this year was "Camp." Kardashian knew right away that Thiery Muggler was the designer she wanted to work with. For eight months they worked on her dress for the event.
Called "The Wet Look," the effect was supposed to be like she had just walked out of the ocean. Her dress was made of silicone, with beading that looked like glistening drops of water and took 500 hours to position perfectly.
To give her the over-the-top look required to celebrate the concept "Camp," she wore a custom corset that pulled her waist in far more tightly than her usual waist trainers. The resulting silhouette was an exaggeration of her usual curves, and it was stunning.
Kanye West got cranky at Kim Kardashian’s look
The day before the Met Gala, West decided to pipe up with objections about the dress, saying: "A corset is a form of underwear, it's hot, for who though?" Apparently he's had a change of heart over wanting his wife to look alluring, saying that he didn't realize that it was impacting his soul.
"You are my wife and it affects me when pictures are too sexy," West said.
West is pretty interested in the state of his soul these days, having found a new passion for Evangelical Christianity. He’s been staging Sunday worship services and working with a pastor, Adam Tyson.
As with most things West gets interested in, he’s not taking a subtle approach. Tyson says he has been "radically saved" and is seriously working on changing his life. He won't even allow people to cuss in his presence anymore.
Kim Kardashian did not want to hear it
Kardashian is not experiencing the same spiritual renewal that West is. When he started telling her that he wasn't happy with her dress, she shut him down. She let him know that she didn’t need his negativity, which was increasing her anxiety at the very last minute.
What’s more, it was hardly fair for West to change his tune on how he wants her to look at this late date. She pointed out that he'd always wanted her to amp up her sex appeal, saying: "You built me up to be this sexy person and confidence and all this stuff, and just because you're on a journey and transformation doesn't mean I'm in the same spot with you. "
West didn't appreciate that his wife refused to submit to his 11th-hour demands for a more chaste look, and he stormed off, clearly upset. In the end, they managed to work it out. At least, West joined Kardashian for the Gala, and she rocked her amazing dress.
There may have been some good reasons for Kardashian to consider going with another look. Apparently the corset was so tight that she wasn’t able to sit down or go to the bathroom. Her plan, in case of emergency, was to pee her pants, and then have her sister help with the cleanup.
The corset pressed so hard into her sides that she had to take breathing lessons to wear it. She’s no stranger to waist trainers, but she said she'd "never felt pain like that."
But in the end, she decided that the look was perfect for the Met Gala, and she wasn’t going to give it up, not for her own comfort, and certainly not because of West’s latest obsession.
