Media & Culture - Lending Marilyn Monroe dress to Kim Kardashian was 'irresponsible', collector says.

Marilyn Monroe famously wore this gown when singing Happy Birthday to President John F. Kennedy.

It was irresponsible for someone to loan an iconic Marilyn Monroe gown to Kim Kardashian for the Met Gala.

A reality tv star appeared at a glitzy fundraiser wearing the dress dubbed the most famous in the world.

The reality TV star made waves when she appeared at the fundraiser wearing the dress worn by Monroe during her performance. This famous dress has already been seen in several films and includes a bag worn by Bardot and shoes by Hepburn.

Some of the attention turned to criticism after a collector posted photos online that appear to show damage to a Ripley's Believe It or Not! gown.

The franchise just wanted to promote publicity, but they didn’t intend on their product to be worn at a prestigious New York event.

Ripley has stated on several occasions that they are doing all possible to secure and preserve the garment,.
