Kim Kardashian lost weight for Marilyn Monroe Met Gala 2022 gown

Blonds have extra enjoyable – even Kim Kardashian.

Glittering within the glitzy, outdated Hollywood costume as soon as worn by Marilyn Monroe, Kardashian shocked the 2022 Met Gala by donning the historic robe and dyeing her hair platinum blond for the event.

The 41-year-old cautiously ambled up the Met steps as comedian boyfriend Pete Davidson, wearing a basic black swimsuit and sun shades, helped her. She sported platinum blond hair and a white fur coat hiding her notorious rump.

Kardashian wore the notorious “Pleased Birthday, Mr. President” robe — dubbed the “most expensive” dress — that Monroe wore 60 years in the past to serenade then-President John F. Kennedy.

“I attempted it on and it didn’t match me,” Kardashian recalled on the red carpet as she retold the story of her first becoming. “It was such a problem. It was like a task, I used to be decided to slot in it.”

Kardashian misplaced 16 kilos in three weeks to squeeze into the robe, even dyeing her hair blond to suit the half — and vowing she’ll hold it that means for some time.
