The very pregnant reality star could care less about what people thought of her gown. She really loved it — and she wasn’t alone! The designer behind the creation called her ‘the most beautiful pregnant woman’ he ever dressed.

Kim Kardashian has come under an insane amount of scrutiny over her maternity fashion, but she refuses to let the critiques get her down — especially when it comes to one very particular dress! The 32-year-old walked the red carpet at The Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, to celebrate the opening of PUNK: Chaos to Couture in NYC, where she attended with her boyfriend, Kanye West, in a custom-made Riccardo Tisci for Givenchy gown..

Kim Kardashian Loves Met Gala Dress:

Kim definitely made a statement when she stepped out in the form-fitting, long-sleeved floral frock — and as soon as she did, people started comparing her to curtains and couches! While it proved to be the most controversial look of the night, a source tells UsWeekly that Kim could care less because she was so pleased with her Met Gala get-up.

“She loved the dress just the way Ricardo designed it for her,” the source says. “His vision for her was a romantic Spanish theme with touches of boldness and punk.”

From the matching shoes to the gloves, the printed look had a lot going on — and it was all a part of Riccardo’s vision. “He worked with Kim, no stylist,” another insider tells the mag. “Just him styling and creating.”

Riccardo Tisci Defends Kim Kardashian’s Met Gala Dress:

Kim wasn’t the only one who loved the look! The designer behind the dress gushed over the way the star looked in his custom-made creation. “She is a really good friend, and I am very happy she came to the Met for the first time. I love Kim. Doing maternity was fantastic. I wanted to have a Kim Kardashian moment, because Kim always supports me. She is the future wife of a really good friend of mine. I wanted to have a moment of family…Kim, Kanye and the baby. It will be a family that I will be close to. Kim said, ‘Ricky, I love what you’re doing so much, I am in your hands.’ I said, we should give her our punk moment with a romantic beautiful flower-printed dress. I have dressed many pregnant women in the past. People can say what they want. To me, pregnancy is the most beautiful thing in the world, and when you celebrate something, you give people flowers. I think she looked amazing. She was the most beautiful pregnant woman I dressed in my career,” he tells WWD.

So Riccardo and Kim are standing by the dress, (even if they’re the only ones). There’s no denying the fact that it was a controversial choice but we think it’s cool that they’re so passionate about it. What do you think?
