Then she called her people who called Ralph Lauren's people and, with just three days to go before the Met Gala, a mini-dress was created within the giant dress. Good thing too, said Jimmy Kimmel, because that dress 'was a fire hazard.'

Here is her own post about the abbreviated version of the dress. As she writes, "imagine the 20-foot train at the after-party."
