It’s not every day that you get to wear Marilyn Monroe’s iconic dress — you know, the one she wore while singing “Happy Birthday, Mr. President.” But, then again, there’s only one person in this world who’s lucky enough to be named Kim Kardashian. Monroe wore the dress back in 1962 when she serenaded President John F. Kennedy for his 45th birthday. And now Kardashian wore the exact same dress on the red carpet at the 2022 Met Gala, where she was accompanied by her boyfriend, Pete Davidson. According to Vogue, Kardashian admitted she had to adhere to a strict diet and put in time both on a treadmill and in a sauna every day in order to fit into the dress. She also admitted the dress was transported from Orlando, Florida to her home in California for her fittings. The result, according to her fans, has been nothing less than perfection.
Of course, it didn’t take long for Twitter to do its thing and react to Kardashian’s epic showstopper of a dress. Many comments included, “I find it so sweet the way Pete Davidson is helping Kim Kardashian to walk the stairs because her dress is so tight,” along with, “@KimKardashian NAILED IT!!! I MEAN!!! happy birthday Mr. President!!!!!” And then there was, “KIM KARDASHIAN. IN MARILYN MONROE’S HAPPY BIRTHDAY MR PRESIDENT DRESS. THAT IS ALL.” Agreed.
