Kim Kardashian has revealed she changed into not one but two Marilyn Monroe gowns at the 2022 Met Gala as she channelled the Hollywood icon at the star-studded event last week.
On Friday (May 6), the 41-year-old gave her loyal legion of fans an insight into her time at the show-stopping celebrity event as she shared a carousel of snaps of herself looking drop-dead gorgeous in a stunning cream sequin gown.
But this wasn’t the only piece of clothing the reality star borrowed from the Gentlemen Prefer Blondes star’s wardrobe, as she later revealed that she changed into another vintage gown the actress wore to the Golden Globes awards back in 1962.
The mum-of-four took to Instagram to share a slew of snaps from the night as she posed up a storm in the gorgeous figure-hugging green dress which clung to her enviable hourglass figure while she showed off the award Marilyn took home 60 years ago.
And to prove her gown was the real deal, Kim also included some black and white snaps of the Diamonds Are Forever star in the dress from the awards ceremony all those years ago.
The blonde bombshell captioned the shots: “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 – where she received the Henrietta Award For World Film Favourite.
“In my quest to find the Jean Louis hand beaded dress that I wore to the gala, I discovered @heritageauctions owned Marilyn’s iconic green sequined gown.
“Further into my research I found out that the owner of the Golden Globe that she received that evening was none other than my friend @jeffleatham.
“I saw this all as a sign the way that all of the stars aligned. It will forever be one of the greatest privileges of my life to be able to channel my inner Marilyn in this way, on such a special night.”
The starlet signed off saying: “Thanks you Heritage Auctions, Barbara Zweig and Jeff for helping to make this memory possible.”
However, many of her doting fans were left unimpressed as they flooded to her comments section to share their thoughts on the star wearing the Hollywood icons dress.
One user fumed: “Her hair, her dress and now her award? This isn’t iconic this is so f**king disrespectful and creepy.”
Another argued: “Is she gonna dig up her body next? Not only is Kim K wearing another one of Marilyn Monroe’s dresses, but she is literally holding the actual award she received that night too. Yikes.”
“The fact that she’s holding Marilyn’s actual Golden Globe. Not a prop. Ghoulish,” a third complained.
On the Met Gala red carpet, Kim wore the $5million dress the actress wore to sing Happy Birthday to President John F. Kennedy in 1962, but reassured fans that she only wore the dress on the carpet and changed into a replica for the event itself.
