The behind-the-scenes footage of Marilyn Monroe’s cult dress from 1962 is seemingly pointless kim kardashian “ruined” the dress when she wore it to the 2022 Met Gala.

The dress worth 4.8 million dollars could not be changed in any form, and the reality star (41) barely pushed her famous curves into it – even losing seven pounds to fit.

Photos of the stretched zipper and surrounding pebbles went viral online, and Monroe fans were outraged by the apparent damage. However, it seems that Kardashian was not responsible for that at all.

A photo of the dress used to compare the fabric after Kardashian wore it was taken in 2016, six years before the founder of Skims even touched it.

The image was also raised with a video at auction where Ripley’s Believe It Or Not she bought the dress in 2016 for almost $ 5 million.

One TikTok The user also defended Kardashian from online vitriol, pointing to a video the museum posted online from its implementation ahead of the Met Gala.

He stopped the video on a long shot of the dress, which revealed that there was already subtle damage to the fabric around the zipper and a few stones.

“The damage was already there before she put on the dress – or at least tried on it,” claims a TikTok user.

“This is a shot of a dress that Ripley’s shared when Kim went to visit and tried it for the first time. “

“The rhinestones are missing, the buckles are all messed up, and this isn’t even closed. So how do we know the dress didn’t look like this [the ‘after’ photo] when is it tight or closed? “

Social media users who commented on the TikTok video said it was unfair for Kardashian to blame herself for the damage she may not have done.

“They’ll find a reason to hate Kim,” one person said. “Naturally damaged as time passes, not damaged as someone wore it,” added another.

Before and after photos of the dress, which Monroe originally wore in 1962 to sing ‘Happy Birthday, Mr. President’ to John F. Kennedy, have surfaced this week on the internet.

Instagram account ‘Marilyn Monroe Collection’ she posted pictures, which include a side-by-side shot of the dress – before and after Kardashian wore it.

Kardashian told reporters on the red carpet that she lost seven kilograms in just a few weeks to fit into it.

“I tried it and it didn’t suit me,” she said Vogue. “It was such a challenge. It was like a role, I was determined to fit into it.”

When she entered the gala ceremony, she changed into a replica of the dress, something that many critics believe should have been done from the beginning.

Many fashion historians and collectors have commented on the move, expressing concern that Kardashian’s re-wearing of the famous garment could have caused damage.

said artifact collector Marilyn Monroe Scott Fortner People since the dress was designed exclusively for the actress – to the extent that she stood naked while it was sewn to her body – it can be concluded that some “stress” was done to the dress at the time.

“A dress worn by anyone else will not be precisely tailored,” Fortner said.

“In this case, Kim Kardashian’s measurements are somewhat different from Marilyn’s. It is logically assumed that the fabric and seams were tight.”
