The 41-year-old actress wore a Monroe dress to this year’s Met Gala.
The star wore the iconic gown in 1962, while gentlemen favored blondes. She sang her Happy Birthday to then President John F. Kennedy.

He said, ‘The crystal is missing and some are hanging on the thread in case you missed it. Ripley’s Believe It or Not, Was It Worth It?’
Skims’ founder is reported to have lost nearly 16 pounds in just a few months to get the gown on.
Until with the Kardashians, the graduates changed into replica gowns near the entrance to the party. She mentioned that she couldn’t move freely in the original.
In any case, it caused damage to the dress and sensibility of Marilyn Monroe fans.
Kim Kardashian faced outrage on the internet for damaging Marilyn Monroe’s iconic dress.
People seemed convinced that Kim Kardashian was promoting unhealthy body standards.
Netizens expressed their dissatisfaction on Twitter.
One fan tweeted, “Chairman Kim shouldn’t have worn that dress in the first place. I mean yes, it’s nice to pay tribute to Marilyn, but she was able to create and duplicate a new dress. It was a symbolic artifact of time that was destroyed.’
Another netizen wrote, “Leave Kim Jong-un to destroy historical works of art.”
The other pointed out, ‘Congratulations to the Met Gala for giving a real-life example of why historically significant clothing needs a conservation department like the Costume Lab’.
In an interview with EW, designer Bob Mackie said it was a ‘big mistake’ for Kardashian to wear a model dress.
He argued, ‘[Marilyn] was a goddess She is a crazy goddess, but a goddess. She was really fantastic. No one takes pictures like that. And it was done for her. She was designed for her. No one else in that dress should be seen.’
