Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Is denying claims that Kim Kardashian damaged Marilyn Monroe’s 60-year-old dress when she wore it to the Met Gala.
According to the museum, a report on the dress’ condition in 2017 states “a number of the seams are pulled and worn. This is not surprising given how delicate the material is. There is puckering at the back by the hooks and eyes..."
Bit Ripley’s VP of Publishing and Licensing Amanda Joiner said, “From the bottom of the Met steps, where Kim got into the dress, to the top where it was returned, the dress was in the same condition it started in."
The reality-star-turned-businesswoman only wore Monroe’s artifact for a matter of minutes. She slipped into the gown in a dressing room near the Met Gala carpet and changed into a replica gown as soon as she made it up the steps.
