Having ditched her signature dark locks back in 2017, fans of Kim Kardashian have been obsessed with how the influencer achieved her platinum blond look.
But in the latest episode of The Kardashians, viewers get to a rare insight into how the reality star cares for her hair.
We even glimpse Kim without her trademark extensions, as she prepares for this year’s Met Gala which was held back in May.
The beauty mogul took inspiration for the hairstyle from Marilyn Monroe, after being offered the chance to wear the icon's Happy Birthday, Mr President dress.
Surrounded by her team, Kim speaks candidly about her hairstyle, revealing that she’d spent 14 hours dying her to get it to the same shade as Marylin’s.
In an unedited sequence we see Kim’s natural shoulder-length hair, which appears to be very fine after hours spent bleaching her naturally dark locks.
However, few would have none this when seeing Kim on the red carpet alongside her then-boyfriend Pete Davidson.
In order to emphasise the dress, the reality star wore her hair slicked back in a sleek top knot.
However, Kim shouldn’t have worried as all eyes were on the show-stopping dress.
Made famous after Marylin’s performance at a fundraiser in 1962, the bejewelled Jean Louis gown has a figure-hugging silhouette and is bejewelled with 6,000 hand-sewn crystals.
Despite Kim looking beautiful in the outfit, the moment was not without controversy.
Some questioned why Kim had to wear the one-of-a-kind dress, which was bought at auction for a stagger $5 million in 2016.
Speaking to Vogue, Kim admitted that it had been an ambition of hers to wear the gown since childhood and that she had undergone multiple fittings.
"I had this idea to try it on and then they came with armed guards and gloves,"
"I always thought she was extremely curvy. I imagined I might be smaller in some places where she was bigger and bigger in places where she was smaller. So, when it didn’t fit me, I wanted to cry because it can’t be altered at all.
This criticism only intensified in the days following the MET, after images of the dress circulated online with alleged damage including ripped fabric and missing crystals. Kim and Ripley's denied this, release statements shortly after the event.
Many also criticised her heavy dieting and extreme exercise regimen, which Kim undertook so she could fit into the historical dress.
"I tried it on and it didn’t fit me. I said, 'Give me three weeks.' I had to lose 16 pounds." She told the press.
Kim responded to the backlash by telling Allure magazine, that she managed to do this in a healthy manner.
“If I was starving and doing it really unhealthy, I would say that, of course, that’s not a good message….But I had a nutritionist, I had a trainer. I have never drunk more water in my life.”
