Did Kim Kardashian Have Her Ribs Removed? New Details On Her Shockingly Small Waist At The Met Gala

The Met Gala this year proved, once again, that we know nothing about fashion! The theme of the night was “camp,” which is “an aesthetic style and sensibility that regards something as appealing because of its bad taste and ironic value.” And attendees didn’t disappoint. Some of the craziest looks of the night included Jared Leto holding a replica of his own head, Lady Gaga stunning in multiple outfits, and Katy Perry as a chandelier... and hamburger.

But, as always, Kim Kardashian had everyone turning heads when they saw her “wet, dripping” look. It wasn’t the outfit, though — it was her teeny-tiny waist!

The shockingly small waist, of course, started a deluge of rumors, the wildest being: Did Kim Kardashian have her ribs removed? Haters on the internet certainly thought so, and voiced their opinions on Thierry Mugler’s — the designer of Kim's dress — first creation in 20 years. Kim said her dress was inspired by Sophia Loren’s look from the 1957 movie, Boy on a Dolphin, revealing to E! News, “He just envisioned me this California girl stepping out of the ocean, on the red carpet, wet, dripping... that is the vibe tonight.”

But how did she get her waist to look like that? She released a video through Vogue showing the process of getting ready for the Gala.

Kim teased she probably wouldn’t be able to sit down, discussed the material on her outfit, and joked that she would be indulging in donuts the day after the Gala.

While we may want to hate on Kim and her look, and chalk it up to rumors of cosmetic surgery, the fact is that she’s worked hard to get the amazing body she rocks — or at least that's what her trainer says. Kim's personal trainer Melissa Alcantara, had her back and shot down any rumors of surgery.

In an Instagram story, Alcantara wrote, “To make things clear, 1. This dress is corseted BUT 2. Kim trains her ass off 6 days a f***ing week, she wakes up early AF and is dedicated. 3. I paved the road for her but SHE did the work! MOST IMPORTANTLY I don't give a s*** about your opinions on her body, if you think she fake or not! I see her every morning, I see her train and I see her sweat, and I see all the work she does outside the gym and THAT is commendable!”

Over the years, Kim has slowly modified her body, and has been public about using waist trainers and corsets to accentuate her curves. As far back as 2014, she began posting about using body shapers:

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen celebrity women with tiny waists, all due to corsets. Dita Von Teese wore a corset daily for more than two decades, Snooki wore one in preparation for her wedding, and Gwyneth Paltrow, Jennifer Garner, and Jessica Alba wore corsets after giving birth to their children to get their bodies back.

So, no, Kim thankfully didn’t have any ribs removed — at least, not that we know of. And whether we like it or not, she’ll continue to wow and shock us with her looks.
