Kim Kardashian made head turns at the recently concluded MET GALA 2022 as she looked beyond elegant, as she stepped into Marilyn Monroe’s dress.
Marilyn Monroe’s fans and experts seem extremely upset with Kim Kardashian borrowing the Hollywood legend’s iconic 1962 dress on the 60th anniversary of her death. Some even wondered how the reality TV star was able to get her hands on the blonde bombshell's wardrobe, while others expressed their displeasure after seeing Kardashian flaunt the dress on Monday at the Met Gala.
The 'SKIMS' founder borrowed the sparkly beige gown the actress had worn in 1962 to sing “Happy Birthday” to President John F Kennedy from Orlando’s Ripley’s Believe It or Not!
Museum acquired the famous gown for $5 million at an auction.
If we are to go by the reports, Kim ensured that she lost enough weight to fit into the retro look and later changed into a replica so she could party through the night.
The fashion mogul, who arrived at the Metropolitan Museum of Art with her comedian boyfriend Pete Davidson, was the belle of the ball at the Monday event. However, Monroe's fans did not approve of her unearthing the 60-year-old piece of history.
“I am extremely disappointed to see this 60-year-old, iconic dress being worn in public,” Michelle Morgan, wrote the 2018 book 'The Girl: Marilyn Monroe’.
“The gown is extremely fragile and has been previously kept in temperature-controlled conditions, but nowhere it is, not only being worn but also in a red carpet environment, where anything could have happened to it,” she continued, adding that “sweat, perfume, and makeup” could have caused “untold damage and staining" to the dress.
