Second looks Kim Kardashian, Bella HadidAfter attending the Met Gala on Monday May 2, more stars wore different outfits.
When she arrived at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art with her boyfriend, 41-year-old Kardashians star, all eyes were on her. Pete Davidson. In addition to the couple making their Met debut, Kardashian was turning heads in the Jean Louis dress Marilyn Monroe wore to sing “Happy Birthday” to then-President John. 1962: F. Kennedy. She borrowed the dress from Ripley’s Believe It or Not! for the “In America: An Anthology Of Fashion”-themed fundraiser.
“It didn’t fit! So I looked at them and I said: ‘Give me, like, three weeks,’” Kardashian, who lost 16 pounds to fit into the dress, told La La Anthony on the carpet. “It was such a challenge, it was like a role. I was determined, I was determined to fit in it.”
The SelfishAuthor also dyed her hair blonde to celebrate the occasion.
“The idea really came to me after the gala in September last year. I was thinking to myself: What would I do for the American theme if it hadn’t been the Balenciaga look?” What’s the most American thing you can think of? And that’s Marilyn Monroe,” she told Vogue. “For me, the most Marilyn Monroe moment is when she sang ‘Happy Birthday,’ to JFK, it was that look. … I’m spending the whole day just dyeing my hair, 14 hours straight.”
While she went to extremes for the moment — “I would wear a sauna suit twice a day” — Kardashian only wore the sheer dress for photos, changing into a replica after she climbed the stairs of the museum.
“I’m extremely respectful to the dress and what it means to American history. I would never want to sit in it or eat in it or have any risk of any damage to it and I won’t be wearing the kind of body makeup I usually do,” she told Vogue. “Everything had to be specifically timed and I had to practice walking up the stairs.”
Davidson and Kardashian, both 28, made their way back into their hotel to change.
“So, after the Met, I am starving,” the KKW Beauty CEO said via Instagram Stories. “And my favorite donuts in the entire world, in New York City, are these mini donuts. Oh, my God, you guys. They are all in the same room. How cute is this?”
