Met Gala 2022: Kim Kardashian Wore The $5 Million Dress That Made Marilyn Monroe Famous
Starlet Kim Kardashian made a big impression on the red carpet of the Met Gala 2022. She wore the five million dollars dress that made Marilyn Monroe famous.
Celebrities went for classic glamour at this year's Met Gala 2022, in the heart of Manhattan. The special event featured a "Gilded Glamour" theme that revived the "Gilded Age", the American golden age of the late 19th century.
The international stars appeared on the steps of the Metropolitan Museum of Art (Met) in dazzling outfits, for an evening of philanthropy after two editions disrupted by the pandemic.
According to EFE, there was no shortage of sequins, rhinestones, metallic fabrics, voluminous tailoring, or transparencies, especially in the case of the Kardashian sisters, who turned up in full formation at the gala alongside their half-sisters and mother, making the charity party of the year in the US almost a family affair.
Kim Kardashian In Marilyn Monroe's Famous Dress
Kim Kardashian came accompanied by comedian Pete Davidson, her new partner and was one of the most eagerly awaited attendees among 400 other celebrities.
The starlet, who made an appearance in black last September, made her entrance with tight, platinum blonde hair in the shimmering beige gown worn by Marilyn Monroe when she sang the famous "Happy Birthday Mr. President". This choice comes in the context that the 60th anniversary of the famous actress' death approaches.
The nude, rhinestone-covered gown evoking Marilyn Monroe is a more understated choice than her more shocking outfits of previous years.
"I am so honored to be wearing the iconic dress that Marilyn Monroe wore in 1962 to sing Happy Birthday to President John F. Kennedy. It is a stunning skintight gown adorned with more than 6,000 hand-sewn crystals by costumier Jean Louis. Thank you Ripley’s Believe It or Not! for giving me the opportunity to debut this evocative piece of fashion history for the first time since the late Marilyn Monroe wore it. I am forever grateful for this moment", Kim Kardashian wrote on her Instagram official account.
Kim Kardashian's dress is valued at 5 million dollars.
