Kim Kardashian is not about to let a few haters steal her shine. 

The E! reality star and KKW Beauty mogul turned heads tonight at the 2019 Met Gala, where she arrived alongside Kanye West in a figure-hugging design by Mugler. So when a few misinformed internet trolls accused Kim of manipulating her waist to fit into the cinched gown, personal trainer Melisa Alcantara rushed to Instagram to set the record straight. 

"To make things clear," the fitness guru wrote, "1. This dress is corseted BUT 2. Kim trains her ass off 6 days a f--king week, she wakes up early AF and is dedicated."

Melisa continued, "3. I paved the road for her but SHE did the work! MOST IMPORTANTLY I don't give s--t about your opinions on her body, if you think [it's] fake or not! I see her every morning, I see her train and I see her sweat and I see all the work she does outside the gym and THAT is commendable!" 

Enough said, right?

Kim then reposted her trainer's message to her own Instagram account.

As the 38-year-old headed into the Metropolitan Museum of Art, she explained the inspiration behind her ensemble to E's Zuri Hall.

"This is the first time in 20 years that Mr. Mugler has designed for the House of Thierry Mugler," Kardashian explained. "He hasn't designed in 20 years, so to come and design this gown for me is such an honor. This is about eight months in the making."

"He just envisioned me this California girl stepping out of the ocean, on the red carpet, wet, dripping, that is the vibe tonight."

Kim also said she's looking forward to indulging in "hot and fresh donuts" tomorrow morning, which we'd agree is so well deserved!
