On June 13, the Marilyn Monroe dress caught the attention of everyone after a viral before and after images of the dress alleged the dress was damaged after Kim Kardashian wore it to the 2022 Met Gala.
Kim wowed everyone when she first stepped out wearing the Monroe dress. While she received backlash from some, others were happy to see the reality star honoring the late actress.
On June 13, an Instagram account that goes by The Marilyn Monroe Collection posted the recent photos of the dress after it was displayed at the Ripley’s Believe It or Not museum.
When the news about Kim wearing the iconic dress first came to light, the museum had assured everyone that it will only happen if the dress was not getting damaged in the process of wearing it to the Met Gala. Due to this, there has been some backlash after the photos came to light.
While Kim showed off her curves at the 2022 Met Gala, the dress didn’t always fit her. In a video that the reality star had released on YouTube by Ripley’s Believe It or Not, it was shown that the dress did not fit the star from the waist below.
The snipper showed Kim trying on the dress and struggling to get it on completely. However, she was heard saying that she would work out more to ensure that she fits into the dress. When the day came, Kim proved it to everyone that he always does what she says.
After the photos of the dress went viral, they received mixed reactions from the people who saw it. To begin with, some were quick to add that the dress was several years old and it does not come as a surprise that it received some damage when it was worn.
One user noted: “it’s a dress you guys get over it.” Another echoed similar thoughts and wrote: “It’s not Kim’s fault at the end of the day but the team. If she didn’t fit correctly or wasn’t in good quality to be worn then why do it.’
Meanwhile, some called out the reality star by writing: “Kim really took off that dress and didn’t even care to look how bad she stretched it.” Another added: “She should’ve never worn it. That dress should be in a museum.” As of now, neither Kim nor the museum has replied to this.
