Kim Kardashian Responds to Marilyn Monroe Dress Damage Claims
Kim Kardashian has spoken up on what really happened to the supposedly damaged Marilyn Monroe dress she wore to this year’s Met Gala.
“It was such a process,” the SKIMS founder defended on Tuesday’s (June 21) episode of Today. “I showed up to the red carpet in a robe and slippers and I put the dress on at the bottom of the carpet, went up the stairs. I probably had it on for three minutes — four minutes, and then I changed right at the top of the stairs.”
Kardashian added, “Ripley’s [and I] worked together so well. There were handlers in gloves that put it on me.”
She also defended her extreme 16-pound weight loss diet it took for her to fit into the dress, and maintains it taught her about being healthier. “I looked at it like a role and I really wanted to wear this dress. It was really important to me. It actually taught me a lot about my lifestyle and my health. Since then, I continued to eat really healthy, I’m down 21 pounds now. I’m not trying to lose any more weight, but I have more energy than ever. I cut out so much sugar — a lot of junk food I was eating, I didn’t even realize it — a lot of fried foods, and I just completely changed my lifestyle.”
