Kim Kardashian is now without doubt one of the biggest names to watch out for on the Met Gala red carpet – and the 2022 Met Gala wasn’t an exception.
After nailing the theme of ‘Camp’ with her wet-look latex gown in 2019 – which was personally designed by Manfred Thierry Mugler – and making headlines (while dividing opinions) with her Balenciaga disguise in 2021, Kardashian pulled out all the stops once again in 2022, having a truly sensational vintage moment on the Met Gala red carpet.
Turning to another famous bombshell for inspiration, Kardashian channeled Marilyn Monroe, wearing the actual gown that the Hollywood star wore for one of her most famous performances, which is also one of the most well-known pop-culture moments of all time.

Kardashian slipped into the Jean-Louis dress that Monroe wore to sing ‘Happy Birthday Mr. President’ to John F Kennedy in 1962. Creating a huge stir at the time, the dress was covered in crystals but almost completely sheer, and Monroe is said to have been sewn into the dress moments before stepping on stage.
“Nowadays everyone wears sheer dresses, but back then that was not the case,” Kardashian told American Vogue. “In a sense, it’s the original naked dress. That’s why it was so shocking.”
