Kim Kardashian allegedly damaged Marilyn Monroe’s dress at the Met Gala

Kim Kardashian allegedly damaged Marilyn Monroe's dress at the Met Gala 1

Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world. Give her the wrong dress and she might piss off millions of fans.

Kim Kardashian shook feathers at the 2022 Met Gala as she took to the museum steps in Marilyn Monroe’s iconic 1962 “Happy Birthday, Mr. President” gown.

The 41-year-old ‘Kardashians’ star lost 16 pounds before the event to squeeze into the historic dress, and even turned into a replica when she got to the entrance of the party because she couldn’t move freely in the original.

However, it seems that posing for photos on the red carpet with Pete Davidson – who later dyed his hair platinum blonde to match his girlfriend’s Marilyn-inspired locks – may have damaged the ‘world’s most expensive dress’. .

On Monday, Pop Culture side-by-side photos of the dress, reportedly before and after Kardashian wore it to the Met. One of the poppers shows signs of stretched fabric and missing crystals, especially around the back closure of the dress.

“Kim should never have worn that dress. I mean, yeah, it’s nice to pay tribute to Marilyn, but she could have had a new dress made and copied. This was a timeless and iconic artifact that is in ruins,’ one person tweeted in answer. “Leave it to Kim to destroy a historic work of art,” said another.

A third wrote“Congratulations to the Met Gala for presenting a real-life example of why a conservation department like the Costume Institute is needed for historically significant clothing.”

A representative of the Ripleys! Believe It Or Not Museum — which lent the look to Kardashian and currently exhibits the garment at its Hollywood location — did not immediately respond to Vidak For Congress Style’s request for comment.
