Ripley's denies Kim Kardashian damaged Marilyn Monroe's dress at the Met Gala
A lot of controversy has lately happened after it was brought to the fore that Kim Kardashian’s attempt at wearing the iconic Marilyn Monroe gown
A lot of controversy has lately happened after it was brought to the fore that Kim Kardashian's attempt at wearing the iconic Marilyn Monroe gown to the Met Gala this year may have damaged its fabric, leading to some tears here and there.
In some newly-emerged photographs, collector Scott Fortner of the Marilyn Monroe Collection the world's "largest private collection of Monroe's personal property and archives" had highlighted that the dress, which is currently on display at Ripley's, has some tears on the back, along with some some crystals and sequins missing.
And that when compared with its on-display images in 2016, the differences in terms of damage are quite stark.
Now, Ripley's itself is addressing the reported damage caused to Marilyn Monroe's Jean Louis gown, explaining in an article published on its website on Thursday that Kim K's Met Gala appearance "did not cause damage to Marilyn Monroe's famed 'Happy Birthday' dress from 1962".
