Kim Kardashian pulled on the iconic dress of Marilyn Monroe and ruined it
TV star and businesswoman Kim Kardashian ruined the iconic dress of actress Marilyn Monroe, which she put on for the image at the annual ball of the Costume Institute Met Gala. Relevant material leads Page Six.
We are talking about a translucent outfit in which Monroe spoke to President John F. Kennedy in 1962. It is noted that on Twitter edition of Pop Crave there were photos of the specified wardrobe item, presumably before and after Kardashian put it on. So, on the frame you can see the damaged fabric of the dress with small holes along the zipper. In addition, it can be seen that several crystals decorating it are missing from the clothes.
It is known that the businesswoman lost seven kilograms before the ball, however, despite this, she could not move freely in this outfit. For this reason, during the evening she replaced the item with a copy of her size. “I have a lot of respect for this dress and what it means to American history,” Kardashian said in an interview with Vogue, emphasizing that she would not want to damage it.
In May, it was reported that stylists helped the TV star put on the original dress. They threaded the string through the zip lock and tied it around Kardashian’s back. According to the celebrity, she had to keep a vintage white fur coat at hip level on the red carpet all the time to cover her underwear.
