Will Kim Kardashian Wear This Iconic Marilyn Monroe Dress to the 2022 Met Gala?

Tonight is the day and we can once again admire celebrities, designers and other fashion types in the most extravagant outfits during the fashion party of the year: the Met Gala. Fans already think they know which dress Kim Kardashian will appear in Marilyn Monroe's iconic dress.

Why Fans and Followers Think Kim Kardashian Will Wear This Dress to the Met Gala

In recent weeks, fans have been speculating that Kim Kardashian may be wearing the Bob Mackie - designed sparkly dress Marilyn Monroe wore when she famously sang Happy Birthday to President John F. Kennedy in 1962. And that rumour doesn't just come out of nowhere.

The rumour mill started spinning when the 41-year-old reality star was asked during the premiere of The Kardashians if she would come to the Met Gala with Pete Davidson. To this, Kim replied to Access Hollywood, "I don't know yet, you'll have to wait and find out. I think we're still figuring it out ourselves.'

She then tells that her own presence is not even certain yet and that this has everything to do with her outfit. Kim: 'It really depends on whether I fit into my dress, so I hope I go. I think it's going to be very last minute because [the dress] can't be custom made, so I have to fit right in." This means that her Met Gala look involves an existing dress.

Marilyn Monroe's dress is the most expensive dress in the world

Clue number two: On Saturday, April 23, Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson were spotted visiting the Ripley's Believe It Or Not! † Let this be exactly where Marilyn Monroe's dress is stored. Ripley's bought the dress for more than $5 million at an auction in 2016, making it the most expensive dress in the world. This would also explain why Kim is not allowed to dress up the dress.

As a third reason, the dress would also fit perfectly into the theme of the Met Gala. The theme is the same as last year: 'In America: An Anthology of Fashion', but wherein 2021 American craft was celebrated in the looks of the guests, this time the event will revolve around 'Gilded Glamour' in American fashion.

With this dress Kim kills two birds with one stone: the dress is arguably the most famous dress in American history and nothing screams glamour more than Marilyn Monroe and her dress with a fitted silhouette and glittering details.

We'll find out tonight if Kim Kardashian is actually wearing the dress. We will of course report extensively.
