Kylie Jenner just revealed a never-before-known secret about her 2018 Met Gala gown. 

Since the 2020 Met Gala has been indefinitely postponed due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Jenner, 22, looked back at all of her past Met Gala moments on Monday, May 4, marking what would have been the opening of The Costume Institute's 2020 exhibition, “About Time: Fashion and Duration. When the Kylie Cosmetics mogul shared a few photos of the head-turning strapless black Alexander Wang gown she wore three months after giving birth to daughter Stormi Webster at the 2018 Met Gala, she revealed the final dress design wasn't exactly what they intended it to be.

In a side shot photo from the red carpet, a zipper is visibly seen running down the left side under Jenner's armpit to her hip. But in fact, the zipper was a last-minute alteration.

"fun fact: this dress wasn't supposed to have a zipper but it ripped as i was squeezing into it so we added it on the way out the door 😯 .. but it worked out and i loved it 🖤," Jenner wrote on her Instagram Story.

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star also remembered when she made a dramatic hair color change before debuting a custom, sheer Atelier Versace dress on the 2017 Met Gala red carpet - her second attending fashion prom.

"donatella asked i go blonde last minute and we made it happen. i loved this look," the Kylie Cosmetics mogul said.

The trio’s coordinating looks nodded at the 2016 theme: “Manus x Machina: Fashion in the Age of Technology.”
