• Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker made their Met Gala debut in coordinating Thom Brown looks.
  • In a Poosh interview, Kardashian said she was sewn into her skirt while in a van on the way there. 
  • "They literally sewed until the moment I had to step out onto the carpet," Kardashian said. 

Kourtney Kardashian says she stood up in a van on her way to the Met Gala on Monday because she was still being sewn into her skirt. 

The reality star, who attended the gala alongside her fiancé Travis Barker, spoke about her first experience at fashion's biggest night in an interview for her Poosh lifestyle blog

Kardashian, 43, said she began the evening getting ready with Barker, who she credited with helping her not take red-carpet events "too seriously."

"Then we loaded into a sprinter van, where I had to stand up the few blocks to the gala, as my skirt was being sewn on me during the whole ride," she said. "The Thom Browne team had to finish sewing up a few details on my skirt, and they literally sewed until the moment I had to step out onto the carpet." 

Barker and Kardashian wore Thom Browne designs on the evening. Her ensemble consisted of a black-and-white color-block maxi skirt with a cropped white button-down. Meanwhile, Barker's featured a coat with tails, a white bow tie and shirt, a black skirt, and black pants.

Sharing some behind-the-scenes photographs of her fitting on Instagram on Tuesday, Kardashian said the outfits were designed to show the couple as extensions of each other. 

"I love how I was the deconstructed version of his perfectly polished look," she wrote in the caption. "I had all the elements of his look draped all over me. His pleated skirt, jacket, and suit pants were dripping from my skirt."

Speaking to Poosh, Kardashian said she and Barker "honestly had the best time" on the red carpet together — though when they got inside Kardashian said she ended up spilling a bit of sauce on her shirt.
