Model Kim Kardashian, who was recently accused of damaging Marilyn Monroe's dress at MET Gala, puts all the flak to rest in a sit-down chat.
The iconic dress that the late star wore at President John F Kennedy's 1962 Happy birthday sing song became a topic of discussion after photos of her spoiling the dress did rounds.
In an interview with Today, the beauty mogul said, "Ripley’s [and I] worked together so well; there were handlers in gloves that put it on me. It was such a process. I showed up to the red carpet in a robe and slippers, and I put the dress on the bottom of the carpet, went up the stairs … I probably had it on for 3 minutes, 4 minutes."
Further adding, "She respects Monroe and is aware of how much the dress means to American history."
"I looked at it like a role. And I really wanted to wear this dress. It was really important to me and I had to undergo a lot of weight loss to fit into it."
The museum had helped her to carefully put on that dress, which she wore only for a limited time.
