This is the price of the Marilyn Monroe dress that Kim Kardashian wore during this year’s Met gala.
KIM KARDASHIAN – On May 2, Met Gala was held, and among the head turners during the event is Kim Kardashian wearing a Marilyn Monroe dress.
“In America: An Anthology of Fashion” was Met Gala’s theme this year and several celebrities attended the event in head-turning outfits. And among those that really sparkled during the event is Kim Kardashian who was wearing a dress of icon Marilyn Monroe.
The particular dress was worn by Monroe 60 years ago when Monroe serenaded President John F. Kennedy on his 45th birthday in 1962. The dress is the most American thing Kim thought. Her hair was platinum blonde and perfectly coiffed. The dress back then was a bit controversial and came as a shock to many people because back in the days, people were a bit more conservative and such sheer touch on the dress is scandalous.
Monroe’s sparkling translucent dress was embellished with over six thousand crystals. Monroe paid $1,440 for the custom piece. In 1999, it was sold in an auction for over a million dollars. And in 2016, it was sold for a whopping $4.8 million at Julien’s Auctions in the year 2016 – it holds the record of being the most expensive dress sold at an auction.
How did Kardashian acquire this? Accordingly, she is a big fan of auctions. She knows the owner of Julien’s who connected her with the Ripley’s. The Ripley’s previously holds this multi-million dollar dress.
$4.8 million is 251,913,600.00 in the Philippine peso.
