Kim Kardashian Says She Wore Marilyn Monroe’s Dress Only For ‘Maybe Ten Minutes’
Kim Kardashian had extreme sets of preparation for her Met Gala attendance earlier this year. But, despite going through the process, she revealed that she only wore the iconic dress of Marilyn Monroe for about ten minutes.
HollywoodLife reported that the 42-year-old reality star opened up about the steps she had taken prior to the event in a new episode of “The Kardashians.” As noted, she talked about the plans she and her team had had, including how she would put on the dress on the red carpet as they could not risk the historical piece due to its fragility.
The publication shared that Kardashian conversed with her team and the producers of the event a day before the Met Gala in one part of the episode. She is said to have told them about not being able to wear the dress on the car ride to the venue, which was why she would not get ready in the hotel.
The SKIMS founder, alongside her team, reportedly came up with a plan that would allow her to change at the venue just before walking the red carpet.
HL, in its report published Thursday, quoted Kim Kardashian from the episode, revealing, “They’re going to have to put up barriers to get me out of the hotel in a robe. They’re putting a dressing thing on the red carpet and I’m going to put it on there.”
The reality star is said to have explained that she could not “sit in a car” wearing the dress, adding that she could not “risk it” because “it’s so fragile.” She added that no one was allowed to touch her while in the dress as they might “get their oil on the dress, so “it’s just too risky to get in the car and leave from the hotel," as per the outlet.
In the end, Kim Kardashian reportedly shared that all of the intense preparations, including the changing on the red carpet on top of the other preps they did before the event, “is all for maybe ten minutes of my life. Just on the red carpet. That’s it.”
Elsewhere in the new episode of “The Kardashians,” the reality star shared an insight into the steps she had been taking to fit into the iconic dress of Marilyn Monroe.
Page Six, in its report covering the matter, noted that the piece, which is a historic gown, could not be altered, and this led her to go on a strict diet.
The publication stated that the episode featured the sauna suit Kim Kardashian used to help her with her diet, with the personality reportedly saying, “I put it on and it makes you just sweat; even if it’s water weight, it will help.”
