“Met Gala – In America: A Fashion Anthology
I’m so honored to wear the iconic dress that Marilyn Monroe wore in 1962 to sing “Happy Birthday” to President John F. Kennedy. It’s a stunning bodycon dress embellished with over 6,000 hand-stitched crystals by costume designer Jean Louis.
Thank you Ripley’s Believe It or Not! for giving me the opportunity to showcase this evocative piece of fashion history for the first time since the late Marilyn Monroe wore it. I am forever grateful for this moment,” she wrote in an Instagram post.
Kim’s impressive weight loss story
In order to fit into the dress, Kim had to go through a rigorous ritual. Apparently, she lost 7 pounds in three weeks for her Met Gala appearance in the dress.

Such was her passion for the event and for her appearance that she behaved elegantly throughout the event even though she was unable to sit down or use the restroom all night, according to the reports.
For the 2018 Met Gala, she lost 7 pounds in 2 weeks
“I was actually very nervous about wearing the dress because I had done a cleanse a few weeks before and had lost 6 or 7 pounds. On the final fitting, I was scared that it won’t fit. When I tried it on, however, it fit like a glove. It was perfection!” she wrote on her website.
Plant-based diet, workouts
In order to stay fit, she prefers to have herbal products in her diet. In an interview, she revealed that she drinks sea moss smoothies.
