Kim Kardashian is an iconic American icon and one of the most successful fashion moguls in history, so it was no shock when she donned a historic dress from Marilyn Monroe's collection on the Met Gala 2022 red carpet.
The internet was abuzz with debate over whether Ripley's Believe It Or Not! star, Kelly Ripa, caused any damage to her gown during her night out on the town. This debate ignited a firestorm of social media responses, with some siding with Ripley's and others placing blame squarely on the reality star herself.
Kim Kardashian has had some iconic fashion moments in the past, but Monday night at the 2022 Met Gala was perhaps her crowning triumph. She arrived on the red carpet alongside boyfriend Pete Davidson wearing a gown designed by Marilyn Monroe back in 1962 to sing "Happy Birthday" to President John F. Kennedy.
Kim Kardashian's dress has now been valued at an eye-watering $4.8 million, making it the most expensive dress in the world. But before she could wear it, Kardashian had to shed 16 pounds in just three weeks in order to fit into it!
She had to drastically alter her eating habits and do a cleanse, but fortunately it worked out and her gown fits perfectly!
This year's Met Gala theme is "In America: An Anthology of Fashion," so it only makes sense that Kardashian would select a famous American icon to honor for her look at the event.
In the weeks leading up to this year's event, there were rumors that Kardashian would don Marilyn Monroe's iconic dress for the occasion. When interviewed by Vogue about her red carpet ensemble, Kardashian explained that she wanted to honor the theme of the gala "Gilded Glamour" by wearing Monroe's timeless piece.
On Monday evening, Kardashian arrived at the Met Gala wearing exactly what Monroe donned when singing "Happy Birthday" to JFK in 1962. She donned a stunning Jean Louis gown that hugged her figure perfectly; even dyeing her hair blonde to match its hue!
After losing 16 pounds and following a strict cleansing diet, Kardashian was finally able to fit into the dress she'd been dreaming of since childhood. On the Met Gala red carpet, it was revealed by Vogue that she'd shed those extra 16 pounds in just three weeks! With such amazing success, everyone was talking about this moment!
What made this particular look so remarkable and how did it compare to other looks that have cemented Kardashian's status as a fashion icon? Here is an overview of Kardashian's style evolution over time, from her debut Met Gala appearance as Kanye West's plus one to her most recent ensemble.
Kim Kardashian made a stunning entrance on the red carpet of the Met Gala with her stunning performance of "Happy Birthday" to President Kennedy in 1962, wearing an inspired gown modeled after Marilyn Monroe's iconic dress.
She donned a form-fitting gown that slid down to her ankles, featuring intricate crisscross detailing on the bodice and sides. This ensemble had plenty of sultry elements, making it an ideal choice for the party.
Her makeup artist added a long ponytail, Lorraine Schwartz earrings and silver sunglasses - all signature pieces from her wardrobe. To finish it off, Lorraine applied smoky eyeliner and mascara before finishing with her signature pout.
Her outfit was a major hit, but it did have one major flaw: the hem was so tight that it made it difficult for her to move around comfortably.
Kim tried to make the dress more breathable by wearing a pair of leggings underneath it. Unfortunately, the results weren't quite what she had hoped for, especially given how tightly fitted it was - leaving no room for movement when walking or climbing stairs.
Thankfully, Kardashian's assistant-turned-friend Stephanie Shepherd was there to capture their awkward situation on camera in a funny TikTok video that she posted to Instagram Sunday night. The clip shows Kim trying to walk and bunny-hop up the stairs dressed in her outfit - making for some hilarious comedy gold!
Steph even manages to crouch down low in order to fit her feet between the railings of stairs. The video is hilarious to watch, and she did an excellent job adding comedic music over it all.
Fashion icon that she is, she naturally wanted to look her best for the event. And this wasn't an exception as she donned another figure-hugging Balenciaga gown for the occasion.
This time, she donned a forest green sequined gown similar to what Marilyn wore when she received the Henrietta Award for World Film Favorite at the 1962 Golden Globes. Fans were in for an unforgettable treat as this ensemble combined bold color and sultry design in one unforgettable ensemble.
Kim Kardashian has made it a tradition to attend the Met Gala every year since she became famous, but it wasn't until recently that she started experimenting with different looks to steal the show.
At her latest appearance, Kim Kardashian took on one of Met Gala history's iconic moments when she borrowed Marilyn Monroe's original skin-tight Bob Mackie dress to sing "Happy Birthday" to President John F. Kennedy in 1962, People reported.
Kardashian struggled to fit into this skin-tight, sparkly gown; so she took the adage "no pain, no gain" literally by dieting and exercising in order to lose 16 pounds and fit into this piece of history now owned by Ripley's Believe It or Not.
This dress, embellished with over 2,500 rhinestones, not only ranks as the most expensive dress in the world but it's also skin-tight and sparkly - leading some to criticize her decision. However, she persisted despite these challenges and succeeded.
At this point, Kardashian has become a Met Gala veteran and always manages to create an iconic atmosphere for herself and everyone else at the event. From fully-masked Balenciaga outfits to Thierry Mugler dresses that required corset breathing lessons, Kardashian never fails to turn heads when visiting the museum.
This year, reality star Kim Kardashian made her first Met Gala appearance with new boyfriend comedian Pete Davidson. Though their outfits didn't vary significantly from what they'd been wearing all week long, they looked drastically different on the red carpet than what they had shared on their Instagram stories.
They wore matching white fur coats off the shoulders. Meanwhile, other members of the Kardashian-Jenner family such as Khloe and Kendall Jenner also donned different looks on the red carpet.
They all looked stunning, making for a wonderful start to the night for the family. All were out together to honor the Met Gala's 2022 theme of Gilded Glamour.
Kim Kardashian is one of the most sought-after celebrities when it comes to style. Whether she's attending events with boyfriend Kanye West, making appearances at her own events or taking center stage on the Met Gala red carpet, Kim always looks stunning.
Kardashian wasn't always so fashionable. In her early years, Kardashian often wore floral-print Givenchy gowns that didn't quite fit and even donned some of her husband's old tees for special occasions. Nevertheless, even then her style wasn't that impressive -
In 2013, Kardashian defied fashion norms at the Met Gala with then-boyfriend Kanye West, wearing a custom floral Givenchy gown complete with gloved sleeves. This moment served as an inspiration for her style, prompting her to try something different.
In 2021, she took her Met Gala style to a new height by donning an all-black Balenciaga bodysuit that covered her face, arms, and legs - becoming the talk of the night with international headlines.
She graced the carpet wearing an all-black Versace chainmail dress, which focused attention on her figure. To complete the look she accessorized with double cross necklaces and a smokey cat eye but didn't wear an undershirt.
Another iconic Kim Kardashian Met Gala look was in 2014 when she donned a custom blue Lanvin evening gown with form-fitting design and subtle waist detailing. To complete the ensemble, she accessorized with Lorraine Schwartz earrings and added an ultra-feminine thigh-high slit.
At the 2022 Met Gala, Kim donned another iconic dress. She donned Marilyn Monroe's iconic "Happy Birthday, Mr. President" gown on the red carpet before switching it into a replica after it had been photographed.
As expected, she caused a stir with her red carpet ensemble. Not only did she wear an iconic gown but she also bleached her hair blonde to match. Additionally, there have been allegations that the $4.8 million dress has been damaged in some way.
No matter the controversy, the dress was one of the most memorable looks at this year's Met Gala. However, it wasn't as eye-catching as other gowns seen on the red carpet this year.
