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

The internet is on fire over the publication of an image that allegedly shows Marilyn Monroe’s dress damaged after Kim Kardashian wore it to the 2022 Met Gala. Ripley’s Believe It Or Not museum responded to the accusations in a statement from press, published on June 16, 2022.

[Mis à jour le 17 juin 2022 à 15h23] Despite the (curious) drastic regime that had been undertaken Kim Kardashian to move freely in the iconic sparkling dress of Marilyn Monroe, it seems that it suffered some damage. Recap: at the Met Gala 2022, the American it girl and entrepreneur wore a historic piece that once belonged to the 1950s actress. A creation steeped in history, since it had been worn during the 45th birthday of John Fitzgerald Kennedy during which Marilyn Monroe had sung the song since passed to posterity Happy Birthday, Mr. President.

And if Kim Kardashian had managed to make an impression in this sumptuous Hollywood dress, it didn’t take long for the web to ignite on the subject.

Lend Marilyn Monroe’s dress to Kim Kardashian, a mistake?

On June 13, 2022, the Twitter account @popcrave unveiled a before/after shot of Marilyn Monroe’s dress, suggesting that it would have suffered during the evening of May 2, 2022. The dress with six thousand crystals would seem to have lost some a few on the Met Gala red carpet, despite all the precautions taken by Kim Kardashian and her team. In addition to missing rhinestones, the dress would be, according to the photos published by @popcrave, torn and slightly stretched at the level of the closure located in the back. Defects which, even small, have serious consequences, since on social networks, the general public does not fail to show its dissatisfaction and his disappointment in the face of this historical heritage that would have been damaged by the fashionista.

“The museum [Ripley’s Believe It Or Not , ndlr] should never have allowed her to wear it, I don’t think it’s just a “dress”, it’s a piece of pop culture in a way”, thus condemns a user on Twitter. Fashion designer Bob Mackiecreator of the dress, also accused its owner, the amusement park Ripley’s Believe It Or Not to have made a mistake by entrusting it to Kim Kardashian. However, in a press release published on June 16, Amanda Joiner, Vice President of Ripley’s claimed that the dress had not undergone any alteration, and that Kim Kardashian had taken great care to remove it to put on a copy once the climb of the steps of the Met was done. The damage that can be seen in the photos would actually be present since buying the dress by the museum (for the modest sum of 4.8 million dollars in 2016), comments supported by a report written in 2017 on the condition of the piece. “A number of seams are pulled and worn. This is not surprising given the delicacy of the material. There are creases at the back, near the hooks and eyelets” noted then Ripley’s. The end of the story?
