In addition to Marilyn’s iconic transparent dress, Kim used another dress by the actress, which was worn by the actress during the Golden Globes, signed by fashion designer Norman Norell, the piece was also auctioned by the auction house Julien’s Auctions.

“To complete my evening after the Met, I had the honor of wearing Marilyn Monroe’s Norman Norell dress that she wore to theGolden Globe Award in 1962 — where she received the Henrietta Award for Best Film in the World. In my quest to find the Jean Louis diamond dress I wore to the Met Gala, I discovered Marilyn’s iconic green sequined piece from @Juliens_Auctions,” Kim Kardashian wrote in the caption of the photo of her wearing the dress on Instagram,”More further into my research I discovered that the owner of the Golden Globe she received that night was none other than my florist @jeffleatham. I saw it all as a sign that all the stars had aligned. It will forever be one of the greatest privileges of my life to be able to channel my inner Marilyn in this way on such a special night. Thank you Julien’s Auction and Jeff for helping to make this memory possible”concluded the businesswoman.

In addition to the controversial appearance of Kim Kardashian at the Met Gala, the name of the star of “Men prefer blondes” was on the rise during the second half of this year due to the film “Blonde”, distributed by Netflix, directed by Andrew Dominik and starring Ana de Armas.

The film became the target of a barrage of criticism, due to the numerous creative liberties taken during the work, and was considered a macho portrayal of the biography of Marilyn Monroe.
