Kim Kardashian Didn't Damage Marilyn's Dress
Ripley’s Believe It or Not! on Thursday denied claims that Kim Kardashian’s wearing of the iconic Marilyn Monroe “Happy Birthday” dress left it with new damage.
ChadMichael Morrisette, who owns a mannequin supply company and once handled the skintight sparkler briefly worn by Kardashian at the Met Gala,
said he spotted fresh damage to the crystal-covered garment when he popped in for a look at a Ripley’s Los Angeles location.
Morrisette shared photos taken on June 12 of the 60-year-old dress with a friend and fellow Monroe collector, who caused a stir earlier this week when he posted before and after shots on social media.
“It makes me sad. I ran out in tears,” Morrisette told The Associated Press.
Kardashian changed into a replica after climbing the Grand Staircase of the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 2.
