In the lead-up to this year’s Met Gala, it became known that reality star Kim Kardashian wanted to show herself in an original dress designed by fashion icon Marilyn Monroe. This is the dress Monroe wore when she served as President John F. Kennedy in 1962.Happy birthday sirrich.
The dress was designed by Jean Louis. Since it was sold to a company for nearly $5 million in 2016, it has been considered the most expensive dress in the world. When Kardashian’s not wearing it, the beaded dress is hung in a museum in Florida.
At the time, Monroe was adapting his body in the truest sense of the word. It was only sewn into the dress shortly before her performance. For this reason, it cannot be modified to fit the dimensions of the Kardashian body. And according to her own statements, “she had to adapt to the dress.”
Kardashian only received the dress for her walk on the red carpet. In actual ceremonies, there would have been a lot of dangers of it getting damaged. So the pleasure is short.
