What could've been!
At the 2016 Met Gala, Kim Kardashian stole the show in a silver Balmain outfit. However, according to her website, she almost wore a different outfit (as pictured above).

According to the KUWTK star:
"For the 2016 Met Gala, I worked with Olivier Rousteing, one of my closest friends and the creative director for Balmain. The theme of the event was Manus x Machina, the melding of fashion and technology, so we wanted to go for a really futuristic look."
At the time, the 35-year-old wasn't satisfied with her post-baby body. Fortunately, Rousteing and company brought SEVERAL pieces!
"The process of getting ready for an event like this is intense; it really takes a village. At this time, my post-pregnancy weight was still fluctuating and I was not at my goal yet, but I was trying so hard. Olivier and his entire Balmain team brought tons of options for me to try."
In order to get it right, they even ripped apart skirts and dresses!
"When I landed in New York at midnight, I immediately went to see Olivier for a 1 a.m. fitting, and we literally cut skirts in half, created tops from dresses, and stayed up until 4 a.m. to get the perfect option that we felt fit the theme."
Although she didn't wear many of the pieces, she still has them in her closet and will wear them on a red carpet sometime soon!
"The good news is, I still have all the other pieces, so I can wear them for future events. What a dream come true!!!"
