Bob Mackie Slams Kim Kardashian for Wearing Marilyn Monroe's Dress to Met Gala 2022

Kim Kardashian does not have Bob Mackie‘s stamp of approval.

In a new interview, the 82-year-old designer was asked to share his opinion on the 41-year-old reality star wearing the iconic dress he and Jean Louis designed for Marilyn Monroe to the 2022 Met Gala, and Bob called it a “big mistake.”

If you didn’t know, Bob drew the sketch for the original gown back in 1962 when he was working as an assistant to Jean Louis. Marilyn then wore the dress when she famously sang “Happy Birthday” to President John F. Kennedy.

No one has worn the dress since, until Kim was loaned the dress from Ripley’s Believe It or Not! to wear it to the Met Gala.

“I thought it was a big mistake,” Bob told Entertainment Weekly. “[Marilyn] was a goddess. A crazy goddess, but a goddess. She was just fabulous. Nobody photographs like that. And it was done for her. It was designed for her. Nobody else should be seen in that dress.”

Kim only ended wearing the dress for a matter of a few minutes, just to take photos and walk the steps of the Met Gala. She then changed into a replica dress.

While visiting Ripley’s to try on the dress, Kim was gifted a lock of Marilyn‘s hair. However, an expert now claims the hair may not really be Marilyn‘s.
