Kim Kardashian channels its interior Marilyn Monroe … wearing the exact same dress that MM wore during a sexy performance John F. Kennedy to The Met Gala.
Kim has just arrived at the ballet wearing Marilyn’s iconic “Happy Birthday, Mr. President” dress … she was the last to show, and arrived with Pete Davidsonwho was dressed in Dior.
The dress, originally designed by Jean Louiswas first worn by Marilyn way back in May 1962 when she gave a sexy birthday show for JFK at another famous fundraiser in New York.
About 60 years later, Kim took the dress off from an exhibition at a museum and rocked it at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Kim has been hinting at wearing the dress for some time … first she said she could not tailor her outfit, which suggests something from an archive, and then she and Pete were spotted while leaving “Ripley’s Believe It or Not! ” museum in Orlando where the iconic dress is on display.
It’s one of the most expensive dresses in the world … the original price tag of $ 12,000 in 1962 equals about $ 114k today’s dollars … and Ripley’s bought the dress from Julien’s Auction in November 2016 for $ 4.81 million.
Legend has it that Marilyn had to be sewn into the dress … and it looks like Kim has the body that matches.
