Kim Kardashian West Shares Goal Weight for Met Gala, Suggests Taking the KarJenner Christmas Card on Met Steps

Apr/29/2016 at 03:31 PM ET

The KarJenners are definitely part of Vogue‘s latest class of celebrities. Kim Kardashian West landed the cover, Kendall Jenner has more fashion editorials than we can count, even Kylie Jenner made a cameo in a recent spread. So when it comes to any Vogue duty, the sisters take their jobs very seriously. So seriously that Kim has been spending months preparing for the magazine’s biggest party of the year — the Met Gala. (She even wants to take the family Christmas card on the famous Met steps!)

Vogue‘s just-released a flashback video of Kim and Kendall on-set during a New York Fashion Week photo shoot earlier this year. You remember the one — Kendall was posing topless while eating a McDonald’s Egg McMuffin and Kim surprised her on-set where she asked her sister for a foot rub.

In the video, Kim reveals she still had 35 more pounds to lose to get back to her post-baby weight, and she set the Met Gala as her deadline. (Update — as of Wednesday she only has four pounds to go!)

While Kendall was still trying to settle on a designer to attend the red carpet with, Kim wants the entire family to dress in one brand so they can use a Met Gala picture as their family Christmas card. Since they “never have time anymore to take photos.” (We’re a little confused by that last part.)

Every Time Donald and Melania Trump Went to The Met Gala

Apr/29/2016 at 09:00 AM ET

The Met Gala is the fashion world’s version of prom. It’s all about which celeb shows up with which high fashion designer in tow. But most importantly, it’s about who will take home the crown for wearing the most drop dead gorgeous look of the night. So, as you can imagine, the event’s red carpet is full of the crème de la crème of Hollywood, as well as another pop culture reality TV icon you may not have expected to make an appearance—Donald Trump. The presidential hopeful and his wife have been attending the Gala since 2004, putting on their finest black tie apparel and hobnobbing with the rich and famous. We have a sneaking suspicion the bragging rights that come along with being able to throw down a cool $50K every year on tickets for the evening doesn’t hurt either.

The First Monday in May Gives Viewers a Behind-the-Scenes Look at How Anna Wintour & Co. Create the Met Gala

With Anna Wintour at the helm, the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s annual gala has become the most exclusive fashion event. Andre Leon Talley describes it perfectly as the “Super Bowl of social fashion events.”

While most mere mortals are unable to score an invite, the new documentary The First Monday in May gives viewers the behind-the-scenes look at what went into planning 2015’s ultra fabulous gathering as well as the Costume Institute exhibition “China: Through The Looking Glass.”

The first trailer for the production was released on Monday.

Directed by Andrew Rossi, the documentary peels back the curtains on all the preparations to show everything from inception to how Wintour and Costume Institute curator Andrew Bolton prevented the decor from looking “like a Chinese restaurant.”

It even details the stresses of booking expensive A-list entertainment like Rihanna, who performed at last year’s gala.

Fashion’s most elite including Karl Lagerfeld and Jean Paul Gaultier mingle with Hollywood’s brightest such as Sarah Jessica Parker, Beyoncé, Bradley Cooper, George Clooney and many more.

It was recently announced that The First Monday in May will be opening the 15th annual Tribeca Film Festival on April 13.

The First Monday in May celebrates creativity in art and fashion and is deeply rooted in the creative world of New York, so to launch at a festival that came into life in order to support that culture is very meaningful,” Rossi said in a statement via Entertainment Weekly.

While the documentary looks back at last year’s event, the 2016 Met Gala is quickly approaching. Co-chaired by Wintour, Taylor Swift, Idris Elba and Apple’s chief design officer Jonathan Ive, the selected theme is “Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology.”
