In an interview with TodayKardashian spoke to anchors on Tuesday about her new show, ‘Kids with Kim Kardashian’. Hoda Koch Savannah Guthrie: “I respect [Marilyn]. I am familiar with American history and how significant this dress is to American culture. [Met] theme being American, I thought what is more American than Marilyn Monroe singing ‘Happy Birthday’ to the President of the United States.”
She continued, “It was such a process. I showed up to the red carpet in a robe and slippers and I put the dress on at the bottom of the carpet, went up the stairs … I probably had it on for three minutes, four minutes, and then I changed at the top of the stairs.”
When Kotb, 57, asked Kardashian to address claims the dress was “ruined,” the Skims founder shook her head and said, “No … Ripley’s [and I]They worked so well together. There were handlers and gloves that put it on me.”

Kennedy in 1962, was badly damaged after being loaned Kardashian for fashion’s biggest night. Fortner claimed that photos were taken on June 12 and showed the dress with tears at its zipper, rips, and missing several crystals. The fashion historian also shared images taken of the dress before Kardashian’s Met Gala appearance that showed the look with no blemishes.
In a statement released on June 16, Ripley’s addressed the controversy, saying: “Kim Kardashian wearing the ‘Happy Birthday’ dress has been hotly contested, but the fact remains that she did not, in any way, damage the garment in the short amount of time it was worn at the Met Gala.”
Ripley’s Vice President of Publishing and Licensing, Amanda Joiner, added in the memo: “From the bottom of the Met steps, where Kim got into the dress, to the top where it was returned, the dress was in the same condition it started in.” The archival center went on to assert that Joiner was with the dress throughout the day of the Met Gala and remained with the garment when it was transported from Orlando to New York for the big event.
