Too Much? Kim Kardashian-West reportedly Splurged Close to N3 Million on Skincare for Met Gala



Kim Kardashian West - BellaNaija - May 2015_001

When it comes to getting ready for a star-studded event, celebs tend to spend a few extra bucks to make sure they shine the brightest. But when it comes to Kim Kardashian-West, it’s go big or go home!

Reports have surfaced that in preparation for fashions’ big night, the reality TV star spent over £13,000 (Approximately N2,933,510 Million) on skincare days leading up to the event.

The mom of 1 and Kanye West‘s wife was keen on looking her very best for the New York event and made daily visits to her dermatologist in Beverly Hills.

A source told Glamour Magazine SA that Kim wanted to steal the show with her body so she splashed out big bucks on cellulite-busting treatments, a £3,235 course of body contouring treatments to firm up her bottom, bottom-boosting injections worth £380 a pop and facials. “She usually visits her dermatologist Dr. Harold Lancer every couple of weeks, but in the run-up to the Met Gala she was going daily. She had a £600 enzyme facial, a £500 chemical peel, intensive collagen facials setting her back £1,000 and she spent over £1,300 on fillers and injectables.

That’s not all she had up her sleeves, or lack of. She made a special request of the designer of her dress – Roberto Cavalli – to remove some of the embellishments on the dress so it could be more revealing and “outshine everyone at the Met Ball“.

Well she definitely achieved what she set out to. Her dress was one of the most photographed of the night.

      You won’t say the same if it was a naija celebrity. Naijas are hypocrites and oyibo butt kissers. The way naijas defend this useless Kim k and obsessed with her is stupid. You guys will be shouting smth else if they reveal how much maybe Toke spends on her skin. You will insult toke’s whole existence but kiss praise her useless idol/role model, Kim k

      It may sound like double standards and maybe it is, but honestly, with the kind of situation Nigeria is in and the horrible inequality we face, it is easier to just get mad at celebrities who spend that kind of money on such things instead of trying to bring the country up. Yes yes it is their money too. We know…

    When it comes to Kim Kardashian. I am actually indifferent. She is a beautiful woman no doubt but I feel she leads an empty life.
    Why am I so hungry this early in the day sef?

      Empty life by having a husband and having children? Abi na by selling clothes, perfumes,acting,and modelling?

    She has the right to do whatever she wants with her money. That’s the price you gotta pay when you are famous and a public figure like she is, your looks is what gets you more money and fame, so for her, it’s an investment.

      Did you hear the reports on the length Beyonce went to look as good as she did, especially for the Met gala? I think you should research some more.

    Upon all she still did not make vogues list of best dressed at the Met gala….Badgalriri was still the most photographed and talked about….when there is money,there are little or no limitations.

    Her dress was designed by Peter Dundas-for roberto cavali- not Roberto himself

    May 14, 2015 at 11:27 pm

    So what if her name was ommited. Beyonce tried too hard to be naked…. this lady is stylishly naked, lol. You loiked way better than B for real

    • ChicAlert

      May 15, 2015 at 10:39 am

      soooooo much better than Beyoncé’s trash

    • Alert!

      May 15, 2015 at 2:42 pm

      I bet most people did not, or rather choose to ignore the fact that Beyonce arrived one hour because she wanted to deliberately get all the attention. Oh plus the fact that she had to go and change her dress to another one on standy when she got a glimpse of what Rihanna was wearing simply because she wanted to arrive as the most stunning. and oh plus the fact that she was on a very special diet for weeks on leading to the Met gala, and she also did have special SPA sessions just for the gala night, so please tell me once again how vain one can be…stop hating!
