Kim Kardashian Reveals She "Cried All The Way Home" After Her First Met Gala

Cast your mind back to the wonderfully strange year of 2013, where Jennifer Lawrence fell down the stairs at the Oscars, the Jonas Brothers broke up, and everyone was obssessed with 'Harlem Shake' for some reason. Were we ever so young?

Well, believe it or not, it was also the year that a heavily pregnant Kim Kardashian made her Met Gala debut, wearing that iconic Givenchy dress. And while the reality star is now an effortless red carpert pro, her first ever appearance at the Met Gala didn't exactly end in the most glamorous way imaginable.

In a recent video, Kim recalled the entire story of her very first Met Gala, even revealing that, "I wasn't actually invited. I was just Kanye's plus one, and that was okay with me because I never really dreamed I would be at the Met Ball. I know no one really probably wanted me there at the time."

And even despite her excitement, Kim's night ended in tears after she saw how people were reacting to her now-iconic floral gown. 

"On the car ride there I remember Kanye saying, 'You look so beautiful, I'm so happy for you.' And then I was crying the whole way home because I just couldn’t believe it," she recalled.

"There were all these memes about me and this couch, and I think Robin Williams even tweeted it, said I looked like Mrs. Doubtfire. It was this whole thing and I just cried."

Luckily, Kim has very few regrets in life, and her 2013 Met Gala outfit choice is not one of them. "Now I love it," she said in the video. "I look back and I'm like, 'Wow, they [Givenchy] had the vision. This is sick.'" 

Now that's what we call character development.
