MARILYN MONROE DRESS WORN BY KIM KARDASHIAN IS ‘PERMANENTLY DAMAGED’, COLLECTOR CLAIMS

The outfit previously sparked debate over body image issues after Kim Kardashian revealed that she lost 16 pounds in 3 weeks to fit into the dress

Kim Kardashian's infamous Met Gala outfit for this year has once again put the TV star on the list of trends and not quite for the right reasons. 

THE OUTFIT THAT KIM KARDASHIAN WORE TO THE GRAND MET GALA WAS NO ORDINARY PIECE OF CLOTHING, IT WAS MARILYN MONROE'S VINTAGE OUTFIT DESIGNED BY JEAN-LOUIS.

At US President John F Kennedy's 45th birthday in 1962, actress Marilyn Monroe wore a sheer dress, which became the talk of the town instantly. 

A Twitter user shared pictures of the allegedly damaged outfit and wrote: "These photos of the damage done to Marilyn Monroe's dress before and after it was worn by Kim Kardashian at the Met Gala... I need to go lay down."

Another tweet read: "Marilyn Monroe's iconic dress has reportedly been damaged after being worn by Kim Kardashian at the Met Gala. The dress now shows signs of tearing, and several crystals are either missing or hanging off of it."
