Kim Kardashian may have damaged Marilyn Monroe Met Gala dress: Claim

It clearly couldn’t keep up with the Kardashians.

According to an observer, the historic dress worn by Marilyn Monroe that Kim Kardashian showed off at the 2022 Met Gala appears to be damaged from her night out.

The Marilyn Monroe Collection Instagram account posted new photos on Monday showing the dazzling dress Monroe wore to sing “Happy Birthday Mr. President” to then-President John F. Kennedy in 1962. But some crystals in the dress appeared to be “missing”, the account claimed, adding that others seemed to be “hanging by a thread”.

Kardashian, 41, vowed not to change the outfit — declared The Post a “national treasure” by a renowned Monroe expert — and changed Self rather than. She now infamously admitted that she lost 16 pounds in three weeks just enough to squeeze into a dress.

She was finally able to fit it on her famous derriere, but was unable to zip it up—hence why she draped herself with a white fur shawl on the carpet.

“I tried it on and it didn’t fit me,” Kardashian recalled on the red carpet as she recounted the story of her first fitting. “It was such a challenge. It was like a role I was determined to fit into.”

The post has reached out to Kardashian for comment, as well as representatives for Ripley, where the dress is currently on display.

In 2016, Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! The museum in Orlando bought the costume for $4.8 million. After taxes and fees, the total value was over $5 million. Ripley told The Post that the piece is “the world’s most expensive dress” to have ever sold at auction. The dazzling gown is now worth more than $10 million.

The reality star-turned-businesswoman wore Monroe’s artwork for just a few minutes. She slipped into the gown in a dressing room near the Met Gala carpet and changed into a replica gown as soon as she made it.

Some experts and collectors previously rebuked Kardashian for wearing the 60-year-old’s garment, telling The Post that it was “extremely delicate” and “anything could have happened to it.”

An expert also suggested to The Post that “sweat, perfume and makeup” could have been on the dress and caused “untold damage and staining”, although Kardashian reportedly went makeup-free at the event. .

A rep for Ripley additionally told The Post last month that she showed “extreme respect” for the garment – adding that “no damage was done” to the dress.
