According to Ripley, she did NOT cause any damage to the gown. The museum and events franchise said in an explanation Thursday that they notwithstanding claims, in any case, Kardashian.
“Did not, in any way, damage the garment in the short amount of time it was worn at the Met Gala.”
The reaction comes after pictures allegedly showed harm to the back of the precious stone-covered dress. The pictures flowed via social media before in the week. Furthermore, Ripley’s VP of distributing and licensing, Amanda Joiner was with the dress as it was moved from Florida to New York while Kardashian was wearing it.
She said the state of the outfit was the same as before “from the bottom of the Met steps, where Kim got into the dress, to the top where it was returned.”
Ripley’s said the dress was somewhat harmed at the time the organization acquired it at an auction in 2016. There were “a number of the seams pulled and worn” and “puckering at the back by the hooks and eyes.”

Ripple NYFW creator says Kim Kardashian’s Marilyn dress should’ve been in a museum. She doesn’t support the idea of renting historic garments!!
NYFW creator further hopes that Kardashian doesn’t start a trend of other celebrities also renting iconic garments. Following claims that Kim Kardashian damaged an iconic Marilyn Monroe dress by wearing it on the Met Gala red carpet, New York Fashion Week maker Fern Mallis lets us know the historic piece of clothing should have been in a historical center in any case.
“The problem with the Marilyn/Kim episode is that the dress was at Ripley’s Believe It or Not,” Mallis exclusively told the media at a celebration for fashion brand Alice & Olivia. “The dress deserved to be at a museum where nobody could wear it and touch it. It really is an iconic piece of art and American history.”
Well, from the perspective of preserving history, we think that no one should be allowed to misuse it.
