Kim Kardashian Wore a Second Marilyn Monroe Dress

Everyone is aware that Kim Kardashian attended the Met Gala dressed in Marilyn Monroe’s “Happy Birthday, Mr. President” gown. The reality star immediately bragged about her risky and antiquated weight loss strategy to fit into a frock that had been hanging out in a Florida Ripley’s Believe It or Not for years. Not only was the news leaked before fashion’s biggest night.

Although technically out of keeping with the Gilded Age event, why not wear two Marilyn Monroe gowns? On May 6, Kardashian disclosed that the attire she wore to the Met Gala after-party was the same as the one Monroe wore to the 1962 Golden Globe Awards, where the actor won the Henrietta Award for World Film Favorite. Kardashian even used Monroe’s actual Golden Globe, which happened to belong to her florist, to complete the cosplay. A sign! At least, it is what Kardashian claims.

Kim Kardashian captioned a collection of images featuring her and Marilyn Monroe wearing the green sequined dress, which was owned by Julien’s Auctions, with, “To top off my night after The Met, I had the honor of changing into Marilyn Monroe’s Norman Norell dress that she wore to the Golden Globes in 1962.” Because Monroe chose to wear the dress as a halter instead of with armholes, you may notice a variation in the silhouette of the garment.

“As I dug deeper into my inquiry, I discovered that my florist @jeffleatham was [none] other than the owner of the Golden Globe that she had received that evening. I viewed it all as evidence of how the stars had all lined up, Kardashian continued. Being able to harness my inner Marilyn in this way on such a wonderful occasion will always be one of my greatest pleasures in life. I appreciate Jeff and Julien’s Auction for making this memories possible.

Yes, occasionally the stars just line up because you were destined to step into the shoes of a deceased Hollywood legend… as long as you’re also a billionaire with virtually unlimited access to precious items from fashion history.
