Kim Kardashian did not damage Marilyn Monroe’s dress, claims Ripley’s Museum
did not return
Marilyn Monroe’s iconic dress
damaged after wearing it to the Met Gala.
The Ripley's Believe It or Not! museum stated Thursday that the Hulu reality star "did not, in any way,
damage the garment in the short amount of time it was worn at the Met Gala."
“From the bottom of the Met steps, where Kim got into the dress, to the top where it was returned,
the dress was in the same condition it started in,” noted Ripley’s VP of Publishing and Licensing,
Amanda Joiner, who remained with the dress the day of the Met Gala during transport from Orlando to New York, as per Page Six.
The museum also stated that Kardashian, 41, did not pay Ripley's to wear it
and instead donated on behalf of the firm to two charities in the wider Orlando region.
“Ripley’s Believe It or Not! will continue to exhibit the dress — in as-is condition — at Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Hollywood through Fall 2022,
