Before hitting the red carpet in her liquid gold chainmail Atelier Versace gown featuring crosses embroidered on the bodice and hip, Kardashian West, 37, went on the 10-day Sunfare Optimal Cleanse to prepare.
“I was actually really nervous about wearing the dress because I did a cleanse a couple of weeks before and lost 6 or 7 pounds. At the final fitting, I was worried it wouldn’t fit. When I tried it on, though, it fit like a glove. It was perfection!” Kardashian West said on her website and app.
The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star documented her progress on social media too and revealed she lost a few pounds less than a week after starting the cleanse.

Kardashian West also turned to Versace for her Met Gala after party look, which she says was a vintage piece modeled by Helena Christensen from 1992.
“I found the exact piece that Helena Christensen wore on the runway in a 1992 Versace show. It was bondage-inspired, so the top was cutout leather with gold detail and the bottom was a minidress,” the star said. “Since this was right after the Met Gala, I kept the bronzy glam Mario had done on me, but decided to go a little edgier with the outfit. It was a dream come true to re-create this vibe.”
Then, that same week, Kardashian West wore yet another Versace gown (this one inspired by a 1995 creation) to attend the Business of Fashion dinner with mom Kris Jenner and sisters Kendall and Kylie Jenner.
“I wore a custom Versace gown that replicated a look from the Spring/Summer 1995 Versace show. The top was a corset and there was a thigh-high slit,” Kardashian West said.
She continued, “I accessorized with two Versace barrettes in my hair. It was one of my all-time favorite looks and I feel so lucky that it was remade for me!”
