Kim Kardashian denies ruining Marilyn Monroe’s iconic dress

Kim Kardashian recently sat down with Today’s co-anchors Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb. 

During the interview, Kardashian addressed the allegations of ruining the dress she wore at this year’s Met gala.

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star explained how the team at Ripley’s Believe It or Not! the museum helped her to carefully put on the dress.

The 41-year-old actress said, ‘Ripley’s [and I] worked together so well. There were handlers in gloves that put it on me. It was such a process.’


She also confirmed that she had sported the historic dress only for a limited amount of time.

The socialite mentioned, ‘I showed up to the red carpet in a robe and slippers, and I put the dress on at the bottom of the carpet, went up the stairs. I probably had it on for three minutes, four minutes, and then I changed right at the top of the stairs.’

Kim Kardashian received a fair share of hate from online users after it was reported that she dropped 16 pounds in three weeks to fit into the Marilyn Monroe dress.

The Skims founder responded to those accusations saying, ‘I looked at it like a role, and I really wanted to wear this dress. It was really important to me. It actually taught me a lot about my lifestyle and my health.’

She added, ‘I’m not trying to lose any more weight, but I have more energy than ever. I cut out so much sugar, a lot of junk food I was eating, I didn’t even realize, a lot of fried foods, and I just completely changed my lifestyle.’

Kardashian was also slammed by Riverdale actress Lili Reinhart over promoting unhealthy body standards.

Regardless, Kardashian seemed to be unbothered as she enjoyed pizza and doughnuts following the glitzy night. She treated herself after working so hard to squeeze into Monroe’s gown.
