Television reality star Kim Kardashian grabbed eyeballs at the recently concluded Met Gala 2022, and she looked absolutely stunning in a Marilyn Monroe dress from her iconic 1962 performance of `Happy Birthday, Mr. President`.
As per the ‘Variety’, the elegant and sparkly sheer dress has now been on display at Ripley`s Believe It or Not museum in Orlando. The dress was sold for a whopping $4.81 million in 2016, and the price makes it one of the most expensive dresses ever sold. Kardashian`s visit to the museum on April 23 with boyfriend Pete Davidson led fans to speculate that she could be wearing the dress on Monday.
Coupled with Kardashian`s previous comments about what she would wear to this year`s event, at which she has become a mainstay, the dress became a leading theory for what the reality star could choose to arrive in, reported ‘Variety`.
As per ‘Vogue’, it was confirmed that on the night of the big ball, Kardashian arrived bleached blonde and sporting a historical frock.
The reality TV star and business owner reportedly revealed that she had to lose 16 pounds in three weeks to fit into this look. Kardashian has consistently made headlines with her outfits at the Vogue-hosted event, which draws eyes to the biggest stars in the world as they dress in themes at the behest of Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour.
In 2019, for the gala`s "Camp: Notes on Fashion" theme, Kardashian wore a crystallised Mugler dress so tight she said she was given "corset breathing lessons."
Last year, for the gala`s American fashion theme, Kardashian arrived in a head-to-toe black Balenciaga bodysuit that obscured her identity to the point of conspiracy, with onlookers claiming she had sent a stand-in to attend in her place.
