Kim Kardashian wears Marilyn Monroe’s JFK dress as Met Gala celebrates gilded age
The Guardian says Kim Kardashian has appeared on the 2022 Met Gala red carpet wearing a crystal-embellished gown last worn by Marilyn Monroe six decades ago when she serenaded the US president John F Kennedy for his birthday.
The Met Gala, known for its high-profile guest list and extravagant ensembles, marks the opening of the annual fashion exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute.
This year’s exhibition, In America: An Anthology of Fashion, inspired the gala theme of “gilded glamor”.
Kardashian’s interpretation of the theme came from “the most American thing you can think of”.
“And that’s Marilyn Monroe,” she told Vogue. “For me, the most Marilyn Monroe moment is when she sang Happy Birthday to JFK, it was that look.”
