Marilyn Monroe’s Dress Designer Bob Mackie Says Kim Kardashian Wearing Her Gown Was a ‘Big Mistake’

Kim Kardashian wore a Marilyn Monroe gown to the 2022 Met Gala when she made a “big mistake,” according to the fashion designer who sketched the Jean Louis dress that the late actress shared on her “Happy Birthday, Mr. during the President”. a demonstration.

Bob Mackie talks Entertainment Weekly And it didn’t reveal anything about how she felt after Kardashian’s stunt. Mackie was only 23 when, under the direction of Louis, sketched for Monroe. At the time, Louis said he didn’t know what occasion Monroe would wear the dress for, but even so, the design was specifically for Monroe, so his feelings were about Kardashian wearing the sparkly dress.

“I thought it was a big mistake,” the 82-year-old designer told EW. ,[Marilyn] There was a goddess. A mad goddess, but a goddess. She was just wonderful. No one takes photos like this. And it was done for him. It was designed for him. No one else should be seen in that outfit.”

According to Entertainment Magazine, Mackie also echoed historians’ concerns that wearing a gown could prove detrimental to the preservation and structural integrity of the dress.

Turner Classic Movies host Alicia Malone, who spoke with Mackie as part of the network’s film series follow the threadalso told EW that she agrees with Mackie’s claim that the integrity of the gown may have been compromised after Kardashian, who lost 16 pounds in three weeks just to fit in the gown, was in awe of her boyfriend Pete Davidson. Together at the Met Gala go hand in hand.

“There are all the issues with the actual preservation of the dress and things like oxygen can affect a dress,” she told EW. “Typically, these outfits are kept very much in a controlled environment and we see that with the Met. The Costume Institute is very careful about how they are handling these historical items. So, it was quite dangerous that She was able to wear it. I personally wish she wore a replica instead of the real thing.”

About how she was able to pull off the gown, which sold for $4.8 million at Julian’s auction in 2016 and was later acquired by Ripley’s Believe It or Not Museum, Kim explained, “I’m a big fan of the auction and I have several JFK pieces so I know Julian’s owner. He was able to add me [with Ripley’s] And that’s how the conversation started.”

As it turns out, the “Happy Birthday, Mr. President” gown is far from the only Monroe gown Kardashian has worn before. The 41-year-old SKIMS founder revealed that, after the Met Gala, she slipped into Monroe’s more iconic look. She took to Instagram and said that, on top of the night, “I had the honor of changing into Marilyn Monroe’s Norman Norrell dress, which she wore to the Golden Globes in 1962 – where she received the Henrietta Award for World Film Favorite.”

No word on how Mackie or Malone feel about this.
