TikToker Recreates Kim Kardashians Met Gala 2022 Look With $12 Dress

TikTok Star Corey OBrien follows the Kardashians as they tinker with their craziest styles.

The moment Kim Kardashian hit the 2022 Met Gala red carpet in Marilyn Monroes’ “Happy Birthday, Mr. President” dress, OBrien began planning how to recreate the iconic ensemble in the comfort of her own home.

I recorded a bunch of photos and videos of the outfit, scene by scene, and then went hunting. With the beauty of the dress and its history, I was extremely meticulous with everything, OBrien tells Page Six Style.

No one can top Kim or the late Marilyn Monroe, but I wanted to do something that pays homage to their beauty and perseverance, their wit and timelessness, while being true to myself and my followers.

In the end, the social media designer used a $12 Forever 21 dress and over 350 rhinestones from Michael’s glittery style to DIY Kardashian.

You can do a quality look without a lot of money, he jokes.

And O’Brien didn’t forget the accessories: I glued a strip of rhinestones together to create the earrings, and I used paper towels as a white shawl,” he says. “It took a while to get everything perfect, but I became a low-budget workshop.”

To complete the effect, O’Brien even dressed up as Kardashian’s boyfriend, “SNL” star Pete Davidson, who helped her up the Met Gala steps in Monroe’s quirky Jean Louis gown.

“How did you end up in Marilyn’s dress?” one of O’Brien’s followers joked in the comments referring, of course, to how Kardashian lost 16 pounds in just a few weeks to fit into the museum piece, which couldn’t be modified.

O’Brien, who is dating NFL free agent Ryan Russell, has racked up more than a million TikTok followers with his tongue-in-cheek (and cheap) dupes of celebrity looks.

A professional dancer by trade, he’s transitioned from live shows to TikTok during the pandemic, telling us, “COVID-19 has forced us to rethink and rework our lives as artists.”

In November 2021, he released his first celebrity outfit recreation, doing as Dua Lipa in a black tank top and cropped shorts; since then he has put his own spin on everything from Miley Cyrus’ silver chainmail splits for Shakira’s “She Wolf” Jumpsuit.

His over-the-top recreations of luxury designer looks made with dollar store items also include a few homages to Britney Spears, whom he calls “the reason I started dancing when I was a kid”, including his unforgettable red “Oops!…I Did It Again” onesie.

And the celebrities who inspired O’Brien’s DIYs took notice; Lizzo, Mandy Moore, Kim Petras, Ellie Goulding and in a full-loop moment Dua Lipa are among the stars who have engaged with her content.

The TikToker still has a few Met Gala-style recreations in the works, including Kylie Jenners’ wedding dress, Blake Lively’s ode to the Statue of Liberty, and Lizzos Thom Browne’s dress, which took 22,000 hours to create. .

Social media has become a contest for who can be prettier or more muscular, but I’ve been able to create a space where I can dance, create a fun outfit, laugh, and have a good time, and I think we we could all use more of this in our lives,” he says.

“When my flight attendant or a barista tells me how much they love my videos and what I create, it’s worth it. I love that being a gay man who dances and has fun with fashion, I can make others feel seen.
