Kim Kardashian Wears Iconic Marilyn Monroe Dress to 2022 Met Gala 

Kim Kardashian turned heads on the red carpet at the Met Gala Monday night wearing a Marilyn Monroe’s actual “Happy Birthday Mr. President” dress.

The dress was loaned to her from the Ripley’s Believe It Or Not Museum in Orlando, Florida.

After walking the red carpet, Kim changed into a replica dress.

“I’m extremely respectful to the dress and what it means to American history. I would never want to sit in it or eat in it or have any risk of any damage to it and I won’t be wearing the kind of body makeup I usually do, Everything had to be specifically timed and I had to practice walking up the stairs.”
