The 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' star - who has 22-month-old daughter North with husband Kanye West - was determined to look her very best for the prestigious New York event last week and made daily visits to her dermatologist in Beverley Hills in the days leading up the bash - famous for the red carpet fashion it attracts.

A source said: "Kim was determined to steal the show with her body. She splashed out almost £13,000 on cellulite-busting treatments, bottom-boosting injections 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 was all in addition to the last-minute bum-boosting injections performed by her plastic surgeon at £380 a go, cellulite-busting infra-red treatments and a £3,235 course of body contouring treatments to firm up her bottom. It added up to a whopping £13k!"

Kim donned a sheer beaded white Roberto Cavalli gown for the event but even had that customised to turn more heads.

The insider explained: "Kim was intent on outshining everyone at the Met Ball.

"She even instructed her designer to remove some of the diamantes off her dress so she could bare as much flesh as possible."

Kim takes Spanx-ing everyday

Kim Kardashian West "won't leave the house" without Spanx because she feels "insecure" after gaining 20lbs.

(Bang)

The 34-year-old beauty - who has 22-month-old daughter North with husband Kanye West - is so insecure about her recent weight gain, she can't bare to be seen without control underwear.

Speaking on 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians', she said: "Everybody thinks, 'She got her butt done and her hips done' and all this stuff.

"I'm like, 'No, I'm legit 20 pounds heavier.'


(Getty Images)

"I'm so insecure lately. Seriously, just with my weight. I cannot leave the house without Spanx."

Kim's weight gain could be attributed to her love of fast food, as earlier in the episode she told her sisters a "life-changing" event had taken place - an In-n-Out Burger had opened in her neighbourhood.

And she later showed her older sister Kourtney Kardashian some pictures from a nude photo shoot she had taken part in for her website earlier that day.


(Getty Images)

She laughed: "We went to KFC on the way there." Can you believe it?"

However, Kim told her stunned sibling she only ate the chicken.

She added: "I didn't eat the potatoes or anything like that."


(Getty Images)

Shocked Kourtney quipped: "Just a fried, greasy bucket of chicken!"

And it seems her calorific craving didn't end there that day.

Kim admitted: "And then we went to In-N-Out on the way home."

Kim's Mother's Day bust out

Kim Kardashian West is "so sad" to be working on Mother's Day, but will still celebrate with her daughter.

The 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' star, who has 22-month-old daughter North with rapper husband Kanye West, is scheduled to fly to South America to promote her new book, 'Selfish' ahead of the US holiday tomorrow.



Asked about her plans, the 34-year-old star said: "I am actually so sad that I am going be in Brazil for Mother's Day, so we're doing something the day before. Mother's Day is kind of pretty low-key.

"I saw my daughter doing a whole arts and crafts thing, her and [my niece] Penelope were. So I'm sure that she made me something really special."

Kim's daughter has also made something for her mother, Kris Jenner, and older sister Kourtney, 36, for the occasion.

She told 'Extra': "North prepared this thing for my mom and Kourtney so she'll take over for the day."



The reality TV star is also gearing up to celebrate her first wedding anniversary with Kanye on May 24, but recently admitted they cancelled their plans to go on safari in Africa.

She added: "I feel like May is a really busy month for us so I think we just want to hang out and relax. Unless he has something planned, he always has something up his sleeve, he always has something planned, so I don't put it past him to do something really special."

Kim's b-room selfie

Kim Kardashian is on selfie mode and yet another bathroom setting, this time in nothing but a towel as she wished her fans 'Good morning' on Saturday morning.

The 34-year-old, apparently fresh from the shower, displayed her beauty as she went make-up free in the snap.



She bared her flawless complexion for millions of followers.

Kim had some time on her hands as she took to Twitter to reveal that she had found some old selfies she hadn't been able to find for her book, Selfish, published on Monday.

Bruce 'borrows designer gowns from ex-wife'

Reality TV star Bruce Jenner has reportedly borrowed £100,000 worth of designer gowns from Kris Jenner's collection.

(Bang)

The 65-year-old reality TV star - who recently confirmed he's going through a gender transition - is said to have annoyed his ex-wife and Kim Kardashian West by borrowing some of the expensive designs.

A source told RadarOnline: "Kris and her girls have a closet that's dedicated to all of their designer dresses by the likes of Balmain and Prada.

(Bang)

"Kim and Kris were really upset about it. Kylie (Jenner) actually saw the dresses in her father's closet in his new house and she didn't say anything because she didn't want to upset anybody."

Kris, 59, is said to be angered by Bruce because she thinks the dresses would be especially valuable years from now.

The source explained: "The closet is dedicated to their gowns from events and she feels she should save them - especially Kim's - because they'll be very valuable one day."

(Bang)

Meanwhile, Bruce - whose divorce from Kris was confirmed earlier this year - recently admitted he has "the soul of a female".

During a tell-all TV interview, the former Olympian shared: "For all intents and purposes, I'm a woman. I have the soul of a female and my brain in much more female than it is male, as of now I have all the male parts."

Kim bans selfies

Kim Kardashian West is reported to have refused to let fans take selfies as they attended the launch of her book Selfish at Barnes and Noble in New York City on Tuesday despite the book consisting of 400 pages of photographs that the reality TV star has taken of herself.

The reality TV star is said to have refused to let attendees take photographs during the event at Barnes and Noble in New York City on Tuesday despite the book, entitled Selfish, containing close to a decade's worth of selfies taken by the brunette beauty, spread out over 400 pages.

According to Yahoo! the ban was enforced to ensure the lines of fans waiting to have their book signed kept moving after eager customers camped over night outside the store on fifth avenue to be the first to get their hands on the publication and for the chance to meet the 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star.

While fans were spotted trying to make themselves comfortable as they settled in for a long night outside the store on Monday, Kim, 34, spent the evening at the prestigious Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

While the venue, Vogue and its US editor Anna Wintour had also enforced their own selfie ban at the event, it seems Kim wasn't interested in sticking to the rules and updated her Instagram account with snaps from the star-studded bash throughout the night.

As well as posting a photo of herself and her "icon" Jennifer Lopez showing off their famous posteriors, she also shared selfies with her husband Kanye West, producer Diplo and Madonna, as well as Lady Gaga and 70s singer Cher.

Kendall Jenner proud of Bruce

Kendall Jenner thinks Bruce Jenner is "the most amazing person" she knows and says she "couldn't ask for a better dad."

The 19-year-old model admits she "couldn't ask for a better dad" because the 65-year-old Olympian, who recently announced he is transgender, has always been there for her.

In a new preview of the upcoming two-part 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' special, 'About Bruce,' the brunette beauty pays a touching tribute to her father, saying: "He's the most amazing person I know. I couldn't ask for a better dad.

"He taught me how to ride a bike and be the tomboy that I am. Every single day we went to school 45 minutes away from home, he would drive us to school, he'd be the first one in line to pick us up."



(Getty Images)

The E! specials, which will air later this month, will focus on Bruce talking to Kendall and his youngest daughter, Kylie Jenner, 17, about his decision to transition from male to female, as well as to his three stepdaughters, Kourtney Kardashian, 36, Kim Kardashian West, 34, and Khloé Kardashian, 30, with ex-wife Kris Jenner.

Rumours of Bruce's desire to become a woman were confirmed last month during a sit-down interview with Diane Sawyer, and he now feels "relieved" to have his secret out in the open.



(Getty Images)

A source previously said: "He's relieved. He feels like a big weight is off his shoulders.

"More and more, and certainly in private, Bruce is living as a woman. He seems confident and relaxed. Recently, he's left his house with nail polish and lip gloss. He seems more comfortable in his new life."

Kim's brother Rob... 'How bizarre'

Kim Kardashian West thinks her brother Rob's life is "so bizarre" because he socialises with his pals but avoids his family.

(Instagram)

The 34-year-old reality star has recently expressed her worries about the 28-year-old sock designer, who has retracted from the public eye in recent years, and branded him odd after he refused to leave his sister Khloe's house.

In the latest episode of 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians', Khloe ranted about their brother after he held a party in her home, inviting women who she described as "major w****s", who then vomited in the property.

She ranted: "Robert threw a party here last night - major w****s.

(Instagram)

"Someone threw up in my house."

A shocked Kim then reacted to the news by admitting she was upset he refuses to spend time with them yet continues to socialise with others.


(Getty Images)

She replied: "'What? Like he won't leave the house or see us hardly but he'll have parties with other people?

"His life is so bizarre."

(Bang)

In the episode, viewers also saw Kim's husband, Kanye West, shoot the video to his song 'Only One', featuring their 22-month-old daughter North, which Kim said made her appreciate her "amazing" life.

Speaking about the video, she said: "I just think it is a really cool concept and I know it's going to turn out so amazing.

(Bang)

"It's so special to have North in a video with her dad and I think she looks so beautiful. I feel so blessed that we now have our little family - it's, like, so amazing that this is my life.

"It's so cool having these memories of North being so young and in a video with her dad. We can look back and just have this moment to last forever."

Kylie Jenner's 'intimate' picnic

Tyga reportedly won his girlfriend Kylie Jenner back with an "intimate picnic" in the grounds of California State University.

(Bang)

The 'Ayo' hitmaker reportedly ironed out any differences he may have had with the 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star as they dined in the grounds of California State University in Fullerton, California ahead of his concert there.

A source said: "They were holding hands as they walked to the track on campus where they had an intimate picnic.



(Getty Images)

"It was quite lovely. I couldn't hear what they were talking about, but she was smiling, laid back and laughing. She had her feet on his lap while they ate on the grass, and a few times, I saw her wiping his face with his napkin."

Meanwhile, the 25-year-old rapper is believed to be so desperate to stop his ex-girlfriend Blac Chyna - with whom he has two-year-old son King Cairo - from ruining his relationship with the 17-year-old star that he is considering offering her $500,000 to stop her from meddling in their relationship.



(Getty Images)

Another insider added to HollywoodLife.com: "Tyga has decided to try and reason with Blac the one way he knows she understands - with money. He doesn't want her to do any more damage so he's offering her money to stop.

"He doesn't want to see any more texts or any more Instagram disses. He hates it, but he will pay her hundreds of thousands of dollars - half a million if he has to, to get her to chill out. It's the only thing that may work."

Khloé took 'refuge' in gym

Khloé Kardashian says she took "refuge" in the gym when she was having "issues" with her estranged husband Lamar Odom.

(Instagram)

The 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star has admitted she exercised more when she was having "issues" with her estranged husband Lamar Odom.

She said: "When me and Lamar were having issues, I decided to channel my energy into working out ... if I went out with my girlfriends I would be hounded by paparazzi and made to feel more humiliated.

(Instagram)

"The gym was my only refuge. I could put music on and dance around with my girlfriends and be silly."

The 30-year-old television personality, who is known for her curvy figure, insists she has never felt fat but admits she was "unhealthy".

(Instagram)

She added: "I have never felt 'fat', I just didn't realise how unhealthy I was until I look back at pictures.

"In the moment I felt so beautiful and I remember walking down red carpets with my make-up done in a little sparkly dress and I thought I was so cute. I had all this confidence."

(Instagram)

Despite having lost an impressive 30 pounds, Khloé says she still gets sent hateful messages about her size.

She told the Cosmopolitan magazine's Body issue: "Now on my Instagram page people comment saying 'I liked you better when you were bigger' and I think, 'Thank God I don't live my life for other people because I'd be in a constant tug of war.'"

Rob works hard on himself

Kim Kardashian West says her brother Rob Kardashian is "working really hard" on himself, but admits he's still "not comfortable in his own skin."

(Bang)

The 34-year-old star, whose brother, 28, is reportedly battling depression and has gained more than 100 pounds over the past two years, thinks he's still "not comfortable in his own skin" but is slowly getting his life back on track.

The 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' beauty said: "I think he's just going through a phase where he's not comfortable in his own skin. And he is working really hard to get back to where he wants to be."

But Kim doesn't think her family's fame is to blame for Rob's issues and claims he is still struggling to get over the death of their father, Robert Kardashian, from cancer in 2003, and his sister Khloé Kardashian's split from husband Lamar Odom in 2013.


(Getty Images)

She told the 'TODAY' show: "I don't necessarily think it's because of the fame. I think it's been circumstances in his life that he just really hasn't dealt with.

"Whether it's, you know, the loss of our father, or certain breakups, or, you know, he was extremely close to Lamar and when, you know, Khloé and him broke up, that was really hard on him. So I think it was a couple things."


(Getty Images)

Kim's mother Kris Jenner previously admitted on their E! reality TV series that she was very concerned for Rob's welfare.

She said: "I feel like if I don't help him do something drastic, that he's gonna die. He's gained over 100 pounds in the last year...He doesn't go out of the house. He's missed Christmas, he missed Kim's wedding."

Kanye's daddy deal with North

Kanye West is "really strict" when it comes to the safety of his 22-month-old daughter North, according to his wife and North's mother Kim Kardashian West.

Kim Kardashian @ Instagram

The 'Bound 2' rapper - who has 22-month-old daughter North with wife Kim Kardashian West - is particularly worried about the safety of the little one, according to Kim.

Speaking on The Today Show, she said: "He's really strict on safety things. Like if something's really high up, he has to make sure there's a lock on it because when she gets bigger, what if she can reach it?

"And I'm like, 'We have years before that's going to happen. You don't have to safety-proof [yet].'"

(Instagram)

Meanwhile, the 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star previously revealed North is addicted to selfies like she is.

She shared: "She has a computer of mine with all of these movies and music on it, and I was just using it, and I noticed the Photo Booth, there were all these selfies of her, that she doesn't realize she's taking, but she presses it, and it's so funny. So we do take lots of pictures together."

Kim also admitted she is keen for her and North to have the same relationship she has with her mother, Kris Jenner.

(Bang)

She added: "I hope that I have the same relationship with her that I do with my mum and that she is my best friend and that she is just a strong, powerful woman and is very confident.

"My grandmothers and my mum all ... just displayed a really strong work ethic, a strong family sense, and really instilled that within me and my sisters at a young age."

Kim's 2nd baby... 'hoping'

Kim Kardashian West is "still hoping" her and Kanye West - parents to 22-month-old daughter North - can have another baby.

The 'Keeping Up With The Kardashian' star and husband Kanye West's fertility struggles have been well-documented but Kim, 34, isn't ready to let go of the chance to make 22-month-old daughter North a big sister.

(Bnag)

Speaking on The Today Show, she said: "They say if you've been trying [to have a baby] for a year, then you usually need a little bit of help.

"I had a tough delivery, so I understand what my challenges are. I mean, I'm seeing the best doctors and I'm trying to do everything that I can to make that happen."

Meanwhile, earlier this month, viewers of the family's E! show watched on as Kim was told she may only be able to have a baby via a surrogate.

(Bnag)

Reacting to the bombshell, she said through tears: "There is nothing more on this earth that I want more than to be pregnant again and to go through that experience, I would pay any amount of money to have that.

"Surrogacy is really scary for me, I don't want one, I don't want that to be my reality. It's my last resort, surrogacy. As much as I hated being pregnant, and I complained every step of the way and joked that I didn't want one, I really don't want a surrogate.

"I wouldn't dare ask anyone to do this for me. It freaks me out, what if they're a lunatic, what if they run off with my baby? I can't do it, I just can't."

How North caught Kim's selfie habit

Kim Kardashian West - who is infamously known as the queen of the selfie - has revealed her 22-month-daughter North loves to take self-portraits too.

(Instagram)

The 34-year-old television personality has revealed that North, despite only being 22-months-old, has already inherited her mother's love of taking self-portrait pictures.

She said: "She has a computer of mine with all of these movies and music on it, and I was just using it, and I noticed the Photo Booth, there were all these selfies of her, that she doesn't realize she's taking, but she presses it, and it's so funny. So we do take lots of pictures together."

(Instagram)

The 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star is hoping North - who she has with rapper Kanye West, 37 - will have the same close connection to her as she has with her mother Kris Jenner.

(Instagram)

She added: "I hope that I have the same relationship with her that I do with my mom and that she is my best friend and that she is just a strong, powerful woman and is very confident.

(Instagram)

"My grandmothers and my mom all ... just displayed a really strong work ethic, a strong family sense, and really instilled that within me and my sisters at a young age."

(Instagram)

And when's she not posing for selfies, North enjoys dancing and taking piano lessons.

(Instagram)

Kim told PEOPLE magazine: "She's getting so big. She says everything. She loves ballet, tap, she takes piano lessons.

"She's very, very active, and she's growing so big and so fast."
