Kim Kardashian is one of the world’s most photographed celebrities, but a new teaser for the upcoming episode of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” demonstrates that she still gets nervous preparing for big events such as the Met Gala.
“This is probably as nerve-wracking as my wedding,” Kardashian, 38, tells her style team as she prepares for the event. “I don’t know why I get so nervous for the Met. Just ’cause there’s pictures from every single angle.”
For this year’s gala, Kardashian wore a custom gown from famed designer Thierry Mugler, who hadn’t designed a dress for nearly two decades.
“It’s a huge responsibility for me because he, I’m sure after not designing for 20 years, wants it to be something magical and special and new,” she adds in a confessional. “I just want it to be perfect.”
And while she says that wearing the dress is a “dream come true,” Kardashian is also seen worrying about how tight it is, admitting she “can’t breathe” in the thin-waisted gown.
She also marvelled at how different the experience is compared to the first time she attended the Met Gala.
“This is a big change from year one,” she says. “I was just Kanye’s plus one, nobody really wanted me there.”
In fact, Kardashian attended this year’s gala as one of Vogue‘s 2019 cover girls. “I’m gonna say, ‘Year seven: cover girl. We officially made it,'” she quips.
The new season of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” kicks off Sept. 8.
