2016 Met Gala: Kylie Jenner Snapchats Battle Wounds From Balmain Dress

Beauty is pain.

Kylie Jenner literally bleeds for fashion.

The 18-year-old "Keeping Up With The Kardashian" star took to her coveted Snapchat account on Monday evening after the 2016 Met Gala to show off the traumatic injuries she endured while wearing her diamond-encrusted Balmain dress.

Poor Kylie! Those scratches! Those purple feet!

But Kylizzle fans, don't worry. Your queen made a fast recovery revealing it was all "worth it though" in the very next snap.

The evening, with the theme "Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology," marked Jenner's first trip to the annual event, which celebrated the Metropolitan Museum of Art's latest exhibition by Andrew Bolton.

Kylie's floor-length Olivier Rousteing-designed number featured sheer panelling down the sides and fringe details on the skirt. But as much as we loved the dress, we wished Kylie took the look to the next level.

But the young beauty mogul's biggest statement at the gala? Her hair, which was styled in a sleek bob.

Like the French say, "il faut souffrir pour être belle!"

We give kudos to King Kylie for fighting through the pain.

For all the looks from the 2016 Met Gala, check out the slideshow below!
