Kim Kardashian wore two dresses that belonged to Marilyn Monroe at the Met Gala

Yes, Kim Kardashian did wear two dresses that belonged to the late Hollywood star.

At the Met Gala 2022, few looks were as expected as the one of Kim Kardashian, especially after the black full-length

outfit by Balenciaga that covered her from head to toe last week. Fortunately, for the second part of the museum’s

“In America” exhibition, Kim Kardashian had another trick up her sleeve, just as unexpected, as she simply

wore a dress worn by none other than Marilyn Monroe. What’s more, it’s not just any Marilyn dress, but the

flesh-colored, shiny, crystal-studded one she wore during her infamous rendition of “Happy Birthday, Mr. President”

on John F. Kennedy’s birthday in 1962. Of course, since the look is a one-of-a-kind museum piece of fashion

history, she only wore it for red carpet photos before quickly slipping into a replica. View more Met Gala 2022: Kim Kardashian wore Marilyn Monroe’s iconic dress from “Happy Birthday Mr. President”

Two birds with one stone

In an interview with Vogue before this week’s event, Kim Kardashian noted that she also had a replica of

another Marilyn Monroe dress on hand, although, as she said, she only planned to wear it to “eat pizza

in my hotel room.” It turns out that Kim Kardashian also had the real dress: a green sequinned dress that

was in the hands of Heritage Auctions, which Kim Kardashian also slipped into for a quick photo shoot in

her hotel room. The dress is another of the Hollywood legend’s most memorable looks, this time a Norman

Norell model worn to the 1962 Golden Globes, where she received the Henrietta Award for being a “world

film favorite.” View more After wearing Marilyn Monroe’s dress, Kim Kardashian opts for an ultra-comfortable look

“This will forever be one of the greatest privileges of my life” – Kim Kardashian

“In my quest to find the hand-beaded Jean Louis dress I wore to the gala, I discovered that Heritage Auctions had

Marilyn’s iconic green sequin dress,” Kim Kardashian wrote on Instagram. During her research, she also learned

that the prize Marilyn Monroe won that year belonged to one of her friends, floral designer Jeff Leatham, who bought

it at auction in 2022. “I saw it all as a sign, the way all the stars aligned,” Kim Kardashian added. “It will

forever be one of the greatest privileges of my life to be able to channel my inner Marilyn in this way on such

a special night.” We won’t soon forget her breathtaking looks either.
