Kanye West wasn’t the biggest fan of wife Kim Kardashian’s figure-hugging 2019 Met Gala dress, calling it “too sexy.” Kardashian just revealed that the dress could have been sexier but she compromised after West made his case.

Kanye West didn’t approve of Kim Kardashian’s Met Gala dress

During an episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, a fight broke out between West and Kardashian about her custom-designed Thierry Mugler dress, a body-hugging wet look that included a waist-cinching corset that caused her physical pain.

West made it known that he wasn’t a fan of the look, remarking: “I went through this transition where being a rapper, looking at all these girls and looking at my wife, like, ‘Oh my girl needs to be just like the other girls showing their body off.’ I didn’t realize that that was affecting my soul and my spirit as someone who is married and the father of now… about to be four kids. A corset is a form of underwear, it’s hot, for who though?”

He added: “You are my wife and it affects me when pictures are too sexy.”

Kardashian said West gave her “bad anxiety”

Kardashian was rattled by West’s comments but stood her ground on the matter, explaining: “So the night before the Met you’re going to come in here and say that you’re not into a corset vibe? You’re giving me really bad anxiety. You knew last night I had really bad anxiety and I don’t need any more negative energy and for you say you’re now not into me wearing a tight dress.”

She also couldn’t understand why he found her dress “too sexy,” pointing out: “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.”

Kardashian compromised about the dress

It’s now come to light that there was another element of the dress that Kardashian removed in an effort to make her husband a little bit happier.

During an appearance on The Real, Kardashian explained: “Well, the dress, initially, since I was wet coming out of the water, there were nipples attached to it.”

She added: I think with editing, I don’t know, I’m not sure if we actually put that part into that fight [on Keeping Up with the Kardashians]. So, he was really certain that he didn’t want that on the dress and had mentioned it multiple times. And that was still on there so we did have that discussion.”

The reality star said she ultimately decided to take the fake nipples off the dress, explaining: “I obviously want to be appropriate for my children and there’s enough for them to see already. I could tone it down a little bit… I totally compromise.”

She told the co-hosts of the show that she is supporting her husband’s religious journey, noting: “I do think that, you know, he is my husband so I obviously want to honor him and what he’s feeling. And he’s been going through this life change and it’s mostly about the kids.”
