Kim Kardashian wore another Marilyn Monroe dress to the Met Gala

Kim Kardashian (41) surprised last Monday at this year’s Met Gala with an extraordinary look. The 41-year-old stood on the steps of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York in an iconic Marilyn Monroe (1926-1962) dress. As now made known via InstagramKardashian borrowed a second dress from the late actress for the after-show party.

She had the great honor of wearing Marilyn Monroe’s Norman Norell gown, which the Hollywood icon wore to the 1962 Golden Globes. At that time, the actress received the Henrietta Award. “When I was looking for the handcrafted Jean Louis beaded dress I wore to the gala, I discovered that auction house Heritage Auctions owned Marilyn’s iconic green sequin dress,” the reality star explained in the post.

Kim Kardashian with original Golden Globe

Kardashian posted several photos showing her in her second look of the night. She paired the figure-hugging open-back forest green sequin dress with emerald teardrop earrings. The TV star rounded out the ensemble by carrying around Monroe’s Golden Globe trophy. This happened to be owned by her florist, as Kardashian explained in the comment.

Kardashian added photos of Monroe in the dress to her Instagram post. But then she changed one thing: while the Hollywood icon wore the dress in a halter-neck style, the TV star opted for a different variant and opted for a high-necked neckline. In an Instagram story however, she posted a photo showing her in the original design.

“It will forever be one of the greatest privileges of my life to experience my inner Marilyn in this way on such a special night,” the 41-year-old wrote on her post.
