RIP to Kim Kardashian's internal organs.
Kim Kardashian attended the Met Gala on Monday night (May 6) and as to be expected all eyes were on her outfit. Dancing to the beat of her own drum, Kim appeared to ditch the "Camp" theme (see: Kylie Jenner and Kendall Jenner) in favour of a Thierry Mugler dress dripping in crystals.
Frank Ocean wore a Prada jacket to the Met Gala and everyone's trolling him
Whilst it wasn't exactly Camp, it was a real head turner. The dress was practically painted onto her skin, making it appear like she'd emerged from the nearest lake.
Speaking to E! about her dress, she said: "He just envisioned me this California girl stepping out of the ocean, on the red carpet, wet, dripping, that is the vibe tonight."
But the real talking point was THAT waist. Kim's waist was cinched in so tight that it defied all logic.
People even started speculating if she'd had some ribs removed for the event.
Is Kim Kardashian the first woman to successfully remove ALL her ribs?? And how come everybody is reposting her shit so stunned and not concerned about her body??? SIS HAS NO RIBS?— edummy: hot cheetos enthusiast (@stupiddammy) May 7, 2019
Does Kim Kardashian have any ribs?! Why is she shaped like an extracted wisdom tooth...— KSJ (@ksjxxviii) May 7, 2019
Kim Kardashian must have had a few ribs removed to get her waist that small, it doesn't look normal— Gemma Ireland (@gemmaireland_) May 7, 2019

Where did Kim Kardashian’s internal organs spend the night at Met Gala? Because I can’t figure out how anatomically possible it would be to fit them all inside that tiny waist.— ellyce! (@ellycep) May 7, 2019
Let’s agree that @KimKardashian took out her ribs to wear that dress 😩😂 #MetaGala— 👑 (@Lilianasotropic) May 8, 2019
In a Met Gala video for Vogue, Kim confirmed that her teeny waist was all down to a corset. In the video, you see as Kim get strapped into the super tight corset. She even admitted she couldn't eat, sit or pee in the custom silicon gown. Now that's dedication to fashion.
Meanwhile, Kim's personal trainer Melissa Alcantara clapped back at the haters who speculated on what surgery she had had on her Instagram Story, and insisted Kim's bod is down to a tough gym regime that sees her workout six days a week.
"To make things clear," Melisa began. "1. This dress is corseted BUT 2. Kim trains her ass off 6 days a fucking 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 shit about your opinions on her body, if you think [it's] 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!"
