A source reveals that the mother of two was so determined to look youthful and flawless for her big post-baby night out that she employed some techniques usually used by doctors to achieve a perfectly rested appearance.
Kim reportedly hired a company called The I.V. Doc to give her their "Beautify" treatment, which administers a cocktail of B vitamins and anti-inflammatory medication through an I.V. in order to rejuvenate the hair and skin. The treatment may sound extreme, but costs a comparatively modest $399.
"She wanted to have a glow for the red carpet," the source tells Page Six. "So she ordered a treatment with plenty of vitamins along with fluids and electrolytes."
A spokesperson for the company that administers the I.V.s declined to comment on whether or not Kardashian used the service, citing the Hippocratic oath as a reason. The service is described as an "energizing 30-minute, intravenous hydration therapy" used to treat "hangover, flu, jet lag, exercise fatigue, food poisoning, and general exhaustion." All sound like things a jet-setting mom of two has to deal with!
According to the source, Kanye did not partake in the process, despite having his own pre-Gala additions made. The source also mentioned that Kim was not in the mood for chitchat, as "any conversation and instructions were directed through an assistant," the source said.
A rep for Kim denied that she received the treatment.
