Marilyn Monroe is a very well-known name, even today. That is why Kim thought it a great idea to wear one of her famous dresses. That has never been worn in many years.
Kim Kardashian criticized for damaging Marilyn Monroe’s dress
Thus far, social media is in a tiff because of the condition of the dress. Right now, it seems that the dress is missing some jewels and has been ripped at some parts of the dress.
To date, Kim Kardashian shared that she needed to lose at least 60 pounds before she could wear the dress for the Met Gala. Right after this confession, many criticized Kim for going through such extreme measures just to fit into a dress.
For some, Kim Kardashian should never have worn the dress as Marilyn Monroe only wore it once. Therefore her dress was considered to be one of the most iconic pieces to be around.
The reality star spent six weeks losing 60 pounds to fit in the dress
However, this did not stop Kim from losing 60 pounds and continued to gush about how determined she was about wearing this iconic dress to the Met Gala.
This year, Kim Kardashian attended the Met Gala with her boyfriend Pete Davidson, sporting the Marilyn Monroe dress she spent six weeks fitting in.
Thus far, it seems that collector Scott Fortner did not want all the backlash at Kim after posting photos about the damage done to the dress. According to Sky News, Mr. Fortner feels that more should have been done to protect the dress from being worn.
“I do feel that it (was) irresponsible, this is not just a dress. This is a cultural icon. It’s a political icon. It’s a Hollywood icon.”
