“We’re back,” the Skims mogul, 42, exclaimed in a Saturday, December 24, Instagram Story video as makeup guru Chris Appleton touched up her glam look.
Appleton, 39, fluffed Kardashian’s naturally dark locks as she posed for a selfie video in her one-shoulder silver gown.
“This hair dying process is so tedious and annoying. We don’t have a shampoo bowl, so we have to rinse it a million times. It is what it is,” Kardashian confessed during a November episode of the Hulu docuseries, noting it took nearly two days to complete. “It has to be the right color [and] my hair can’t fall out. We have to get it right because we have one day to dye it, so we are going to be up for the next 15 hours just dying it.”
“I had this idea to try it on and then they came with armed guards and gloves,” Kardashian told Vogue correspondent Lala Anthony on the Met steps. “The idea really came to me after the gala in September last year. I thought to myself, what would I have done for the American theme if it had not been the Balenciaga look? What’s the most American thing you can think of? And that’s Marilyn Monroe.”
She continued: “For me, the most Marilyn Monroe moment is when she sang “Happy Birthday,” to [former President John F. Kennedy], it was that look.”
After this year’s Met Gala concluded, Kardashian wasn’t ready to give up her blonde look. “The roots are definitely growing out. I’m going to dye it soon. I’m going to stay blonde for a minute,” she said during a September appearance on Live With Kelly and Ryan. “I’ve just been lazy [to bleach my roots]. It’s so much work.”
