Kim K wore Marilyn Monroes actual dress to Met Gala


People always love to talk about how Marilyn Monroe was a ‘big girl’ and a size 16.  But that’s not true. She was 5′ 5″ and 118 lbs.  That wouldn’t be a size 16 in any book.  But that didn’t stop Kim Kardashian from trying to squeeze her famous derriere into one of Marilyn’s most famous dresses.

To be the last to enter the Met Gala carpet is a coveted place in line.  And this year Kim went to great lengths not to disappoint.

Kim says she lost 16 pounds to be sure and fit the actual dress Marilyn wore to sing happy birthday to President Kennedy.

“Well this is Marilyn Monroe’s dress and it is 60 years old and she wore this when she sang ‘Happy Birthday’ to President John F. Kennedy in 1962,” Kardashian told Vogue correspondent La La Anthony on the red carpet.

“I had this idea to try it on and then they came with armed guards and gloves,” she continued.

“It was such a challenge. It was like a [movie] role. I was determined to fit [into] it. I haven’t had carbs or sugar in about three weeks. We’re having pizza and donut party back at the hotel [after the Met Gala],” she added.
