Did Kim Kardashian Wear This Famous Marilyn Monroe Dress To The 2022 Met Gala?

The Met Gala is just over three days away, with the most exciting red carpet of the year kicking off in New York on Monday night. Every year, the event hosts some truly chaotic and glorious fashion looks. And one of the most anticipated attendees of the evening is Kim Kardashian.

Without fail, Kim always arrives on the steps of the Met sporting a headline-grabbing number. Last year, it was the Dementor-esque Balenciaga division outfit that spawned a thousand memes. Before that? Her Mugler corset dress with a wild look. Naturally, speculation is already starting to build around what Kim will be wearing this year and, well, some eager fans think they’ve already figured it out. According to internet sleuths, Kim Kardashian gave a few signs that she might be wearing an iconic Marilyn Monroe dress for the occasion.

Specifically, fans think Kim might be wearing the exact same dress Marilyn wore to sing “Happy Birthday, Mr. President” to John F. Kennedy for his 45th birthday at Madison Square Garden in 1962.

So let’s look at the facts, shall we?

The custom-made Jean Louis dress, covered in crystals and estimated to be worth around $5 million, is currently on display at Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Orlando, Florida museum. Now here’s where it gets interesting: Kim was photographed visiting the exact same museum with Pete Davidson earlier this week. Coincidence? Perhaps.

But there is more.

Kim also revealed that she couldn’t alter her 2022 Met Gala look. In an interview with Go to Hollywood earlier this month, Kim said her appearance at this year’s gala hinged on her ability to put on her look. “It really depends if I fit into my dress, so hopefully I go,” she said. “I think it will be last minute because it can’t be adapted, so I have to fit in like, exactly,” she added.

This sparked a Reddit user to put the pieces together and form a theory, writing: ‘I have a feeling she’s going to be wearing a high profile celebrity dress (e.g. Marilyn Monroe’s) which is in a museum she visited yesterday with Pete and as she talked about how the dress ‘cannot be personalized.’ »

If you’ve been watching Kim Kardashian’s Instagram Stories lately, you’ve also noticed that she hit the gym pretty hard last week, with a few early morning (5:30 a.m.!) workouts all while wearing a sauna suit with a hectic sound. It could just be another coincidence. Or, maybe she’s trying to get to a place where she can wear the Marilyn dress. Who knows?

On Twitter, the theory continues to grow, with another user writing, “An inside source told me that Kim K was trying to borrow Marilyn Monroe’s dress that she sang happy birthday to President Kennedy for the upcoming Gala. Put…. but it doesn’t work it doesn’t suit her so she’s trying really hard to get in shape until then”

For context, the theme for this year’s Met Gala is “In America: An Anthology of Fashion,” which is essentially a celebration of American fashion history. According to vogue, the dress code for the gala is “gold glamour, white tie”. So a famous Marilyn look would make a bit of sense, right?

TLDR; Kardashian fan @GayManWithASprayTan summed it up perfectly with this epic TikTok:

“It was an iconic moment in American culture,” he said of Marilyn’s famous fashion moment. “Not just pop culture, American culture. »

“This dress was made for Kim,” he continues. “Like, I know it was made for Marilyn, but Kim is technically the modern-day Marilyn Monroe. »

This signature, however, is everything: “And if Kim is Marilyn, Pete better be JFK.” Okurrrr »

We will have to wait until Monday evening to see if the internet is right.
