Kim Kardashian will be wearing the famous Marilyn Monroe dress to the Met Gala in 2022

Kim Kardashian strolled the red carpet with boyfriend Pete Davidson at the Met Gala Monday in 2022 wearing Marilyn Monroe’s famous dress.

Before “The Kardashians” star hit the carpet, scouts across social media discussed the chance to catch Kardashian in the dress because of some not-so-subtle hints she dropped about this year’s event.

Last month, during an interview with “Access Hollywood,” she shared that her attire was still under construction for fashion’s biggest night because the fit had to be accurate.

“It really depends on whether I fit into my dress, so I hope I get going,” she said. “I think it will be up to the last minute because it can not be tailored, so I have to fit into it exactly.”

Just two weeks later, Kardashian and boyfriend Pete Davidson were spotted in Orlando, Florida, visiting Ripley’s Believe It or Not! museum, where the iconic dress Monroe wore while singing “Happy Birthday” to President John F. Kennedy, is kept, according to The Sun.

There was even one Reddit thread dedicated to speculating what Kardashian would wear, with some suggesting Monroe’s high-profile dress matches this year’s white tie “Glided Glamor” dress code.

Monroe’s dress became famous after her breathtaking, seductive bid for “Happy Birthday” at a fundraiser for Kennedy and the Democratic National Committee in 1962.

Kardashian knows how to create some serious buzz with her previous Met Gala looks, including last year’s highly memed Balenciaga “shadow” ensemble and her jaw-dropping latex dress, which is barely there, worn in 2019.
