Kim Kardashian’s Met Gala 2022 Look
Marilyn Monroe’s glittering gold dress
The glittering gold dress Marilyn Monroe wore to the president’s 45th birthday in 1962 is now a hot item once again. The dress has sold for $4.8 million at auction. It was last worn by the actress in 1962, when she sang “Happy Birthday” to President Kennedy. Since then, no other celebrity has worn it. Since the dress was sold, it has been ensconced in the Ripley’s Believe It or Not museum in Orlando. But a couple of years ago, the dress was given to Kim Kardashian.
The gold dress was designed by French fashion designer Jean Louis. It is estimated to be worth $5 million USD, and is made of $2,500 worth of crystals. It is so tight that it is not even possible to wear anything underneath it. It was sewn into place moments before Marilyn Monroe performed. Fans also expect the star to dye her hair blonde in the dress.
Kim Kardashian’s metallic silver gown
The star was honored by a metallic silver gown at the Met Gala, and the look made headlines. It was paper thin, covered in over 6,000 crystals, and adorned the top half of her body. It wasn’t easy for Kim Kardashian to fit into her dress, though, so she had to lose 16 pounds before she could wear it.
In an interview with Vogue, Kim explained her inspiration for the look. It was inspired by a vintage Marilyn Monroe dress, which she first wore at the Met Gala 60 years ago.
Kendall Jenner’s sultry ballgown
Kendall Jenner looked stunning in a sultry ballgown, and the lace-up design was a perfect fit for her body type. The sexy gown featured a lace-up back and was paired with a sheer yellow top and bra. Jenner finished the look with black strappy heels and crystal tear-drop earrings. Her hair was in a messy bun, and her makeup looked flawless. She also paired her dress with jewelled earrings and a cat-eye lip.
Kendall Jenner stunned in a sultry gown designed by Balenciaga. Her dress showed off her figure, and was covered with crystals. While the dress was sheer on top, it was a bit too tight at the bottom. Besides her sexy gown, she also paired it with a bedazzled clutch.
Kanye West’s comparison to Marilyn Monroe
Kanye West, aka Ye, once compared Kim Kardashian to the actress Marilyn Monroe. The comparison was made in 2013 during an appearance on The Breakfast Club. Marilyn Monroe was one of the most photographed women in history. The singer and actress was a symbol of modern celebrity culture. West, who went by the name Ye, has long been aware of the celebrity status of the Kardashian family.
The actress had worn a dress that was so risqué in 1962 that it prompted gasps from the audience. At the time, Marilyn Monroe was an unconventional icon, and her dress was considered scandalous. Despite her unconventionality, however, the actress went on to become an American icon.
