Lili Reinhart calls out Kim Kardashian. Another Met gala on the first Monday of May. A-listers went to great lengths to show off their most daring fashion moments, and actress Lili Reinhart took to Instagram to criticize the extreme lengths to which certain celebrities went to achieve their jaw-dropping 2022 Met Gala looks.
Lili Reinhart was quick to express her displeasure with the glamorization of weight loss and extreme dieting. The Riverdale actress addressed her concerns on her Instagram Story just one day after the Met Gala. “To walk down a red carpet and give an interview about how hungry you are… because you haven’t eaten carbs in a month… all to fit into a [expletive] dress?” penned the 25-year-old star “So, so wrong. So [expletive] on a thousand levels.”
She went on: “To openly admit to starving yourself to attend the Met Gala. When you know that millions of young men and women are looking up to you and listening to everything you say. The ignorance is out of this world.”
Lili also stated: “Please stop supporting these stupid, harmful celebrities who base their entire image on their bodies. I am not an angry person in general, but the toxicity of the industry sometimes gets to me, and I have to do my little Instagram-story rants to vent my rage.”
What more Lili Reinhart said about Kim Kardashian?
Lili did not name any celebrities, but her self-described “rant” comes just one day after Kim Kardashian revealed to VOGUE that she lost 16 pounds in three weeks to prepare for the iconic event.
Jean Louis designed Marilyn Monroe’s iconic glittering beaded gown in 1962. Following Marylin’s death, the stunning piece was preserved at Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Museum in Orlando, FL, after being purchased for $4.81 million from Julien’s Auction.
“It was this or nothing,” Kim continues, explaining that to slim down for the dress, she “would wear a sauna suit twice a day, run on the treadmill, completely cut out all sugar and all carbs, and just eat the cleanest veggies and protein.”
“I did not starve myself, but I was extremely strict.” Kim has yet to respond to Lilli’s veiled rant.
