Kim Kardashian stuns in iconic Marilyn Monroe dress

Kim Kardashian stunned the world by appearing at this year’s Met Gala with Marilyn Monroe’s iconic Happy Birthday Mr President dress.

However, she has now been accused by a Marilyn Monroe devotee of spoiling the world famous yellow dress.

The Marilyn Monroe Collection took to Instagram on Monday to share “before” and “after” photos that allegedly show the damaged dress after Kim’s outing.

The dress, on loan from Ripley’s Believe It or Not!, appears to have some new issues and users claim that there are “lost crystals” and some are now “hanging by a thread”.

Images of the dress have now gone viral after being taken and posted by ChadMichael Morrisette on Sunday.

And fans were quick to comment on the post with one saying: “” Too much to keep “the integrity of the dress and its preservation”. @Ripleys Believeitornot, is it worth it? “

Another wrote: “Missed so many crystals and those tears. What a disaster!!”

And a third said: “Not only does it stretch around the zipper, but if you look at the top left, there are a few missing crystals!”

The dress, purchased for $5 million in 2016, has been kept in a temperature-controlled environment since purchase.

Kim, 41, was loaned the dress to her annual gala, and Ripley’s said in a statement at the time: “‘We take great care to preserve this piece of pop culture history.

“With input from garment conservationists, appraisers and archivists, the condition of the garment comes first. Believe it or not! There hasn’t been any change to the dress code. the dress and Kim even changed into a replica after the red carpet! ⁠”

And a source close to the SKIMS founder told Mail Online that any signs of wear and tear were visible before Ripley’s bought it and labeled those allegations false.

Kim was also criticized at the time for confirming that she had lost 16 pounds to fit the suit.

The reality TV star said she cried when she couldn’t fit her iconic ‘naked’ dress on her first try and admitted that she wears a sauna suit twice a day, while also running on treadmill and eat “cleanest vegetables and protein” in one bid to get the right size.

But fans have criticized the reality mogul for promoting unhealthy weight loss – especially when she says she’s going to treat herself to a “pizza and donuts” party with beautiful Pete. Davidson immediately after wearing Marilyn’s dress.
