A post shared by @kimkardashian reports that the Jean Louis dress Marilyn Monroe wore in 1962 to sing “Happy Birthday” to John F. Kennedy appears to have been damaged after Kim Kardashian wore it to the 2022 Met Gala.

The @marilynmonroecollection Instagram account shared photos of the dress — before and after Kim Kardashian wore it. In the photo reportedly taken after, the dress shows tearing with several crystals either missing or hanging. The material also appears to be stretched.

When Kardashian first tried on the dress, it didn’t fit her. In attempt to wear the iconic gown, the reality star revealed she lost 16 pounds in three weeks. However, she only wore Monroe’s dress up the Met Gala stairs for a few minutes before changing into a replica.

The bottom line is that Kim should have never worn the dress. She should have worn the replica. That dress is iconic. The fact that the allowed Kim Kardashian to wear it is disgusting. She may be a sweetheart, but no one should ever be allowed to wear that dress. And now its ruined.

Ripley’s Believe It or Not! said in a press release in May:

Great care was taken to preserve this piece of pop culture history…With input from garment conservationists, appraisers, and archivists, the garment’s condition was top priority. Believe It or Not! no alterations were to be made to the dress and Kim even changed into a replica after the red carpet!?

Take a look at the damage Kim did to the dress because she was too big to wear it:
