Re: Met Gala May 2022/Fashion

Kim K's dress is Marilyn Monroe's "Happy Birthday, Mr. President dress". she said she had to go on a no carb no sugar diet to lose 16 lbs to fit into it because it can't be altered.  I think she looked fabulous.  Khloe, too.   Not so much Kylie nor Travis Barker's partner ... her name is excaping me.  I haven't come across Kendall yet..

@Somertime check this out:

 

Kim Kardashian Lost 16 Pounds to Wear Marilyn Monroe's Dress for Met Gala Debut with Pete Davidson

 

Kim Kardashian pulled from Marilyn Monroe's fashion archive for her Met Gala debut with Pete Davidson.

 

All eyes were on Kardashian, 41, and Davidson, 28, as they stepped out together to close out the 2022 Met Gala red carpet. But the fashion entrepreneur's gown is what has everyone talking.

 

Kardashian borrowed one of Marilyn Monroe's most iconic gowns — the "Happy Birthday, Mr. President" dress — which has been on display in Orlando, Florida, at Ripley's Believe It or Not!. She topped off the glamorous style with diamond drop earrings and a white fur jacket.

"Well this is Marilyn Monroe's dress and it is 60 years old and she wore this when she sang 'Happy Birthday' to President John F. Kennedy in 1962," Kardashian told Vogue correspondent La La Anthony on the red carpet.

 

"I had this idea to try it on and then they came with armed guards and gloves," she continued.

 

But getting into the vintage gown was not an easy feat. "I tried it on and it didn't fit me. I said, 'Give me three weeks.' I had to lose 16 pounds down today," Kardashian admitted.

 

"It was such a challenge. It was like a [movie] role. I was determined to fit [into] it. I haven't had carbs or sugar in about three weeks. We're having pizza and donut party back at the hotel [after the Met Gala]," she added.

Yes, yes @Wsmom.  Thank you for adding that.  I didn't see your post when I went hunting on why she looked so slim and why her hair is blonde for the moment.  LOL.  Thanx!

I think Ryan Reynolds & Jon Batiste look best!

 

That yellow/gold dress is hideous!!!! (sorry, don't know her name)

 

Kim K. looks pretty good too.

The Marilyn Monroe dress Kim wore is valued at

$5 million.  She could not alter it in any way.  I thought Khloe and Kendell also looked great.  Kylie not so much and Kourtney just horrible.

 

Blake looked fantastic and looked like she was really having fun especially when they did the transformation.  Coverage on E was horrible.  I streamed through Vogue.

@gertrudecloset I did see that she lost 16 pounds in order to fit into the dress. Her hips seem to be narrower. She's not my cup of tea but I think she looks very attractive in this dress.

 

Here is a little bit of trivia regarding Jean Louis.  One of  the first "naked" dress he made was for Marlene Deitrich when she opened her act in Las Vegas in the 1950's.  He made many for Dietrich for her concerts all through the 1950's, 1960's and 1970's.now.

@Somertime Yes, I saw that too.  Kim really does look smaller than she normally does.  She looks good.  That's a beautiful dress.  So, the newer designers just borrowed from the old school high fashion crew.  In this picture her waist is soooo tiny.  Gee it looks good on Marlene!

[ Edited ]

I saw Blake Lively's dress transformation -- really cool -- and pretty!  The train looked like it would be heavy, though.

For some reason it bugs me that Kim K. is wearing Marilyn Monroe's dress.  She doesn't seem "worthy." 🙃
