The reality TV star  Kim Kardashian wore the Marilyn Monroe’s 60-year-old iconic dress at Met Gala 2022. While some praised her, many questioned why she carried the 60-year-old heritage and thought it was an insult to the legend. Now it seems that the critics were right. The “Kardashians” star is under fire because it looks like she may have destroyed the piece of clothing.

As per reports, the actress loosed 16 pounds in a week to fit into the dress which she wore for a few minutes as she walked the red carpet with boyfriend Pete Davidson.

An anonymous fashion critic page on Instagram named Diet Prada has revealed that the reality television star damaged the dress.

Another Instagram post shared by Marilyn Monroe Collection posted references to previous articles detailing the exhaustive efforts made by Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! Museum to preserve the gown. This included a security team to oversee Kim’s every move and a representative who was allowed to pull the plug whenever they wished. ⠀

As soon as the news broke, people on the internet started sharing their reactions. “Kim should’ve never worn that dress, to begin with. I mean yes it’s nice to pay homage to Marilyn but she could’ve had a new dress made and replicated. This was a timeless and iconic artifact that’s been ruined,” one person tweeted in response.

The Jean Louis dress, which is over 60-year-old, was famously worn by Marilyn as she sang ‘Happy Birthday’ to then US President John F. Kennedy in 1962. Initially, Kim could not fit into the dress, which led to Ripley denying her permission to wear it. But the SKIMS founder proudly admitted to losing 16 pounds to be able to fit into the iconic dress on the red carpet, which sparked outrage from the public and experts alike. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
