Kim Kardashian left Marilyn Monroe’s dress in ‘heartbreaking’ condition, expert says

A costume expert says Marilyn Monroe’s iconic dress from 1962 was completely altered and lost its magical moment after Kim Kardashian wore it to the Met Gala in May.

Kardashian and the owner of the dress, Ripleys Believe It or Not, have come under fire after newly emerged photos revealed alleged damage to the dress.

Monroe wore the dress adorned with 2,500 rhinestones on nude-colored fabric to President John F. Kennedy’s 45th birthday celebration, where she sang a sultry rendition of Happy Birthday.

ChadMichael Morrisette, a visual artist who regularly helps handle and display the costumes, said he spotted the damage during a recent visit to Ripleys Believe It or Not in Los Angeles.

He then shared images of what he spotted with the Marilyn Monroe collection.

I know the dress very well, I’ve seen it many times, I’ve photographed it many times, I have lots of photographic evidence of what’s different now, Morrisette, a Monroe fan, told HuffPost.

The dress was designed to be tight on Monroe’s body, he said.

The patches and panels of the dress were pulled to the point of being bubbled, torn and tattered, according to the expert.

There are also a number of crystal beads missing, he said.

He said he was curious why Met Gala co-chair Anna Wintour and others at the event allowed Kardashian to wear the dress, which he says is the most expensive dress in the world. .

HuffPost has reached out to Kardashian, the Met Gala and Ripleys for comment.

In 2016, Morrisette said he curated an exhibit that featured thousands of Monroes’ personal items, including the dress for Juliens Auctions.

He said he staged and created a museum for people to see the story of the cast of Some Like It Hot in 2016.

I have to present this dress to the public and treat it with respect, dignity and reverence, Morrisette said.

Ripleys bought the dress that night for $4.8 million.

A number of netizens have weighed in on a video taken of Kardashian in the dress before the Met Gala and believe it is proof of an already ruined dress, Buzzfeed News reported.

However, those worries don’t hold for Morrisette, who said Kardashian had already tried on the dress in Calabasas before the video.

This [damage] it’s because of her. She once tried to hug it to her body and she decided to lose 16 pounds to wear it, he said.

And the fact that it hangs on a wooden hanger [in the video] is outrageous. That’s not how you treat a garment that has that weight and crystals and delicacy, it’s amazing that it doesn’t lay flat.

Morrisette, in an Instagram post earlier this weekwrote that the dress is a piece of his life and described its current state as heartbreaking for him.

Kardashian looked stunning in the replica dress, he said, but he’s not sure what she can do in response to the current state of the original dress other than take responsibility.

But that doesn’t change the reality of what happened…that that dress was completely altered, Morrisette said.

He no longer has that magic moment.
