Marilyn Monroe Dress Allegedly Damaged After Kim Kardashian Wore To The Met Gala

An Instagram account called @marilynmonroecollection has shared photos of Marilyn Monroe’s iconic “Happy Birthday, Mr. President” dress highlighting “before” the dress was worn, and “after” it was worn, and it shows apparent damage to the back of the gown. The dress appears to be fraying and several crystals also appear to have fallen off. Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! Museum loaned the dress to Kim Kardashian and is currently displaying it at its Hollywood location. They have not responded to a request for comments regarding the damage. Do you think Kim should have been allowed to wear the dress?
