Kim Kardashian damaged the iconic Marilyn Monroe dress she rented for the Met Gala . This is reported by the publication Pop Culture. It is noted that after the release of Kim Kardashian, scuffs appeared on the dress and now several crystals are missing.

The appearance of Kim Kardashian in the dress of Marilyn Monroe, in which she performed the song Happy Birthday Mr President to John F. Kennedy, was the main event of the Met Gala this year. The reality TV star allegedly rented an outfit for $5 million, and in order to wear this dress, she lost seven kilograms in three weeks.

I have a lot of respect for this dress. I would never dare to sit or eat in it. I don’t want to damage it, and for this I will give up the make-up that I usually put on my body before events,
Kim said in an interview with Vogue before the event.

After stepping out in a Marilyn Monroe dress, she faced harsh criticism. So, many, including Lili Reinhart, condemned her for being a “bad example” for fans and said that she was not worth sacrificing her health for the dress. Kim herself commented on the criticism in an interview, stating that she sees nothing wrong with it.
To me, it was like, “OK, Christian Bale can do it for a movie role, and that’s acceptable.” Even Renee Zellweger gained weight for the role. For me it’s the same. I didn’t say, “Hi everyone, why don’t you lose weight in a short amount of time?”

Many netizens decided that giving Kim a Marilyn Monroe dress was not worth it at all. Despite a strict diet and intensive training, it was not possible to completely fasten the dress on Kim: the outfit was secured with the help of special devices, over which Kardashian put on a fur cape. Immediately after entering the red carpet, Kim changed into an exact copy of the dress.

Kim Kardashian has not yet commented on the news about the damage to the dress.
