The appearance of Kim Kardashian at the Met Gala could turn into a new scandal.
Two weeks have passed since the ball, and heated conversations about it do not subside. The red carpet appearance of Kim Kardashian in the legendary dress of Marilyn Monroe was the loudest at the event. This time, the author of the sketch of the same outfit, Bob Mackie, decided to speak out. It turned out that the designer was hostile to the idea of lending the legendary dress to the television personality.
When Maki created the drawing of Marilyn’s famous “naked” dress, he was only 23 years old. Since then, 60 years have passed. The outfit was kept for many years in the Ripley’s Believe It or Not! and carefully guarded. In it, the Only Girls in Jazz star sang for President Kennedy. According to the designer, no one but Marilyn herself was allowed to wear the dress.
“I think this is a big mistake. Marilyn was a goddess. A crazy goddess, but a goddess. She was just fabulous. And this dress was designed for her, ”the fashion designer was quoted by Entertainment Weekly .
Maki is far from the last to think so. Monroe biographer Michelle Morgan shares the fashion designer’s position. The writer was disappointed when she saw Kim’s iconic 60-year-old dress.
“It is extremely fragile and has previously been stored under temperature controlled conditions. But on another person on the red carpet, anything could happen to him, ”she said.
