Kim Kardashian Lost 16 Pounds to Wear Marilyn Monroe’s Dress at the Met Gala

KIM KARDASHIAN wore MARILYN MONROE’s dress last night at the Met Gala.  It was the crystal-studded nude gown from when Marilyn sang “Happy Birthday, Mr. President” to JOHN F. KENNEDY in 1962.


Since the 60-year-old dress is a piece of history and was custom-made for Marilyn, Kim couldn’t have it tailored.


She told the “Vogue” correspondent, quote, “I tried it on and it didn’t fit me.  I said, ‘Give me three weeks.’  I had to lose 16 pounds down today.  I haven’t had carbs or sugar in about three weeks.  We’re having [a] pizza and donut party back at the hotel [after].”

She borrowed it from the Ripley’s Believe It or Not! museum in Orlando.  It holds the Guinness World Record for being the most expensive dress sold at an auction . . . at $4.8 million.
