Kim Kardashian appears to have suffered permanent damage to a historic Marilyn Monroe outfit after wearing it at the 2022 Met Gala, an expert familiar with the outfit told USA Today.

Sixty years later, Kardashian worked with Ripley's to wear it to the Met Gala.

According to Vogue, she wore the dress for a few minutes before turning it into a copy so as not to damage the original.

A loyal fan of Monroe who has exhibited more than one of his iconic outfits, Morrison said he was "overwhelmed" by the current "Happy Birthday" outfit.

"My heart is broken. From what I've seen, I have literally given up trying to keep Ripley from crying," he said. "I can't believe Marilyn's clothes are ruined."
