The Metropolitan Museum of Art hosted this year’s Met Gala. The star-studded event will feature appearances by fashion legends and high-profile celebrities including Kim Kardashian and Billie Eilish.
Speaking of Kim, the fashion mogul is attending the annual fundraiser event in a skintight gown. The gown has a lengthy history, which Kim discusses on her Instagram.
The Met Gala — In America: A Fashion Anthology
I’m honoured to be wearing the historic dress Marilyn Monroe wore to sing “Happy Birthday” to President John F. Kennedy in 1962. It is a gorgeous skintight gown that costumier Jean Louis embellished with over 6,000 hand-sewn gems.
Thank you to Ripley’s Believe It or Not! for allowing me to debut this evocative piece of fashion history for the first time since it was worn by the late Marilyn Monroe. I will always be indebted to this occasion.
Kim wore a weird Kanye West-inspired ensemble at last year’s Met Gala, which instantly became a meme. It’s fantastic that Kim has chosen to attend this year’s event and show her face. Consider the images below.
