Apparently Kim Kardashian wasn’t content with the controversy surrounding her wearing Marilyn Monroe’s iconic dress to the Met Gala, as she has unveiled a second dress belonging to the late icon via her Instagram on Friday.
The Skims founder revealed that she changed into green Norman Norell dress that she wore to the Golden Globes in 1962.
If that wasn’t enough, she also decided to pose with the actual Golden Globe that Monroe took home on the night.
“To top off my night after The Met, I had the honor of changing into Marilyn Monroe’s Norman Norell dress that she wore to the Golden Globes in 1962 —where she received the Henrietta Award For World Film Favorite. In my quest to find the Jean Louis hand beaded dress that I wore to the gala, I discovered @heritageauctions owned Marilyn’s iconic green sequined gown. Further into my research I found out that the owner of the Golden Globe that she received that evening was none other than my friend @jeffleatham. I saw this all as a sign the way that all of the stars aligned. It will forever be one of the greatest privileges of my life to be able to channel my inner Marilyn in this way, on such a special night. Thank you Heritage Auctions, Barbara Zweig and Jeff for helping to make this memory possible.”
I know a lot of people were furious about the first, so the second will come as another disappointment.
By all accounts, the estate was delighted with the attention Kim brought to this iconic dress, but as so many people have said, she could’ve just as easily done the same with the replica.
