Met Gala Moment | Kim Kardashian channels Marilyn Monroe | Florida News


By BEATRICE DUPUY, Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) — Kim Kardashian went classic and iconic at the Met Gala, once again breaking the internet by donning one of Marilyn Monroe’s most famous looks.

Tracking her whereabouts from paparazzi photos and scanning recent interviews, social media users guessed that Kardashian was going to be wearing the dress when she and Davidson were recently spotted in Orlando, Florida, the home of Ripley’s Believe It or Not. In 2016, the dress worn by Marilyn Monroe while singing “Happy Birthday” to President John F. Kennedy in 1962 was auctioned off at Ripley’s Believe It or Not for nearly $5 million.

The bodycon nude dress worn by Kardashian at the Met Gala on Monday contains more than 2,500 hand-sewn crystals.

Kardashian was the latest celebrity to walk the Met Gala red carpet, accompanied by her boyfriend, Pete Davidson. She traded her signature long black hair for a tight platinum blonde bun, mimicking Monroe.

The reality star and entrepreneur told Vogue she needed to lose 16 pounds to fit into the dress. All of the Kardashian sisters attend the Met Gala, as does mom Kris Jenner.

Kim Kardashian and Davidson made their first red carpet outing together last week at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner.
