The original dress was purchased by Ripley’s Believe It Or Not in 2016 for a whopping $4.8 million. The socialite revealed that when she approached them for the dress, they first gave her a replica in order to check if she will even fit in the dress.

In the episode, Kim Kardashian explained that before wearing the $4.8 million Marilyn Monroe “Happy Birthday Mr. President” dress for the Met Gala, she was asked to wear a replica, to check if she would fit in the dress. Unfortunately, she didn’t fit in the replica, so of course, she wasn’t getting her hands on the original. This left her enraged and she then set out on a journey to lose over 10 pounds just to fit in the dress. The famous dress was worn by late Hollywood legend, Marilyn Monroe, when she sang for President John F Kennedy on his 45th birthday. The socialite also said that she had no plans of attending the Met Gala this year as it “would have been difficult to beat last year’s Balenciaga-inspired event.

The iconic dress could not be altered, which means the only way to fit into the dress was to lose weight. That is exactly what Kim Kardashian did as she went through extreme weight loss. She reportedly gave up eating sugar and started eating clean, healthy food. She managed to hit the goal as she lost over 10 pounds in roughly three weeks and managed to wear the dress to the 2022 Met Gala.
