“I’m a little worried that some people may dislike it and say, ‘How dare she think she can wear Marilyn’s dress!'” Kim Kardashian said on Thursday’s The Kardashians program.
Kim Kardashian was aware that certain individuals would object to her donning Marilyn Monroe’s classic dress to the Met Gala in 2022..,
During Thursday’s episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, the 42-year-old creator of Skims stated, “I’m a little scared that people will hate me and say, ‘How can she think she can wear Marilyn’s dress?'” “Yes, I understand.”
In a talk with celebrity hairstylist Chris Appleton prior to the event, the mother of four described her preparations for donning Marilyn Monroe’s beautiful sequined gown.
She added, “All of this — losing weight, dying hair for 30 hours, leaving the hotel in a robe, arriving, changing on the red carpet, just walking to the red carpet, and then changing again into a replica of the dress because we can’t risk sitting in it and eating dinner — is for maybe 10 minutes of my life… like that.”
Kim demonstrated that her decision to borrow the slinky dress for the year’s largest fashion event was motivated by far more than a desire to cause a commotion.
She said, “I love that Marilyn was a regular girl who figured it out and became the most renowned woman in the world.” It is simply fascinating.
A producer then stated off-camera, “That sounds like someone we know,” to which Kim slyly responded, “Who?”
Kim’s decision to wear the dress, which Marilyn Monroe wore in 1962 to serenade President John F. Kennedy on his 45th birthday, was controversial and dramatic. It was also not something that occurred overnight.
Kim stated during this week’s episode of The Kardashians: “No one trusted us; for years, they never sent us samples.”
“Then, after I arrived in Paris and tried on the samples, they would say, “Oh, she actually fits in our merchandise.” I therefore have no idea how to convince the man who possesses the original Marilyn Monroe outfit that I am a shapeshifter.”
Kim ultimately shed 16 pounds in three weeks, she told Vogue on the red carpet of the gala.
“It was such a difficulty. It was like a movie role. I was determined to make it work “She stated at the time in support of her weight loss.
In addition to criticism for her strict diet, she was criticized for wearing the classic clothing. In addition, there were claims that the garment had been destroyed after she wore it. (Ripley’s disputed that the gown was damaged.)
After the Met Gala, designer Bob Mackie told Entertainment Weekly, “I thought it was a major error.” “[Marilyn] was a divinity. A mad goddess, yet a goddess.
She was simply amazing. Nobody pictures in such a manner. And she was assisted. It was created just for her, “He debated. Nobody else should be observed wearing this clothing.
