They show “permanent damage” Kim Kardashian caused to Marilyn Monroe’s dress

Kim Kardashian is often in the eye of the hurricane.

The model and businesswoman made an impression on the day they appeared at the 2022 Met Gala, wearing the dress Marilyn Monroe wore in 1962 as she sang “Happy Birthday, Mr. President” to John F. Kennedy in Madison Square Garden .

However, wearing this dress walked the red carpet and one of the first consequences was that it eventually led to changes in the charter of the International Council of Museums (ICOM for its English acronym), which was publicly decided by a statement on May 13.12. In 2022, the ban on the use by celebrities of fashion items that are irreplaceable due to their properties.

“Historical clothing must not be worn by anyone, whether public or private. It’s better to prevent the damage than to heal it. Improper handling will destroy an object forever,” the organization said.

The before and after of Marilyn Monroe’s dress

In the moments after the MET Gala, there were videos crediting Kardashian for not “entering” Monroe’s dress, even though she claimed to have lost 8 pounds for the event.

In the wake of the media scandal, the Instagram account identified as “marilynmonroecollection” this Tuesday posted multiple photos of the dress before and after Kim Kardashian wore it.

The pictures show slight tears in the fabric and especially in the costume jewelry, which has already triggered the debate about the use of clothing that is considered historical.
