The sisters, with the exception of Kourtney and Kim, wear pastel outfits that match the theme. Two sisters have an argument about not knowing what the theme is of the celebration, and Khloe ridicules them, saying that it was on the invitation.
Khloe shares with her guests how Tristan gave True an engagement ring made of diamonds and informs the hosts that he wasn’t able to attend the event due to an event the day. Kris arrives at the event with a limp following her operation. Kris, a mother of 6, relates a tale of Khloe as a young girl. She recalls how as a child, Khloe used to think it was her dog, and she would bark at people and would lick their legs from time to time.
Kris says to Khloe she was told that Tristan was calling her and informed her that he’d paid for all of the costs for the party, without Khloe’s permission. Khloe replies that she will not let this happen and says that she was thrilled to host a celebration for her daughter. she will not let Tristan take care of the bill.

Kim tells her designer that she would like to wear the dress of 1962 Marilyn Monroe gown which the actress was wearing to wish then-president John F. Kennedy a happy birthday “what’s better American than this?”
Kim calls the shop which bought the dress from an auction to schedule an appointment to test it out before on the red carpet. Khloe is joined by Kim in discussing the dress idea. Khloe says that she’s received invitations to attend the MET Gala before but claims that she had to stay away from the event due to her fear. Kim says that she will be taking along Pete who will portray J. F. Kennedy by wearing a suit.
Kylie is currently trying on her dress in preparation for her MET Gala. Kylie claims she decided that she would attend at the last moment and also mentions that she wore late designer Virgil Albot’s gowns to honor him following his tragic passing. Kylie will wear one of his final designs, which includes an ivory wedding dress that comes with a baseball cap and an embroidered veil.

Kendall confirms that she will attend the MET Gala as a Prada model and will wear one of the brand’s costumes for the event. Kim has a replica of the Marilyn dress to try and claims to be an aspiring shape-shifter and can easily wear any dress she likes. However, since the original dress doesn’t feature any stretch at all, she’s concerned about fitting in it.

Kim is thrilled and confident that she will fit in the original dress in this particular instance.

Kourtney as well as Travis are on their way to Milan and then get their rooms. The couple is at the privately-owned office inside Milan where they can enjoy refreshments and coffee, as well as exchange pleasantries prior to testing their wedding dresses the next day.
The Episode Review
What started out as a reality program has moved away from the genre it was originally intended for and is now something unappealing. The Kardashians were a popular brand that thrived on drama, but this Hulu show is determined on presenting their family members in the most positive image it can.
It’s regrettable that the show and its producers no longer wish to speak about the real drama that takes place within the actual world.
There’s not a single mention of the Astroworld Tragedy or the follow-up to Kylie’s response to the incident. We don’t also know anything about Kanye’s recent public rants about Kim and Pete’s relationship.
The show also deletes footage of Pete and removes him from the main program to prevent more drama, which results in a very bland episode and not something that fans want to anticipate.
