Kim Kardashian is well on her way to becoming the modern Marilyn Monroe.
A day after the 2022 Met Gala, Ripley’s Believe It Or Not shared a video revealing not only did they lend Kardashian Monroe’s iconic “Mr. President” dress for fashion’s biggest night, they also gifted her with some of Monroe’s hair.
“During @KimKardashian’s Met Gala dress fitting at Ripley’s Believe It or Not! HQ, our team surprised her with a silver box that contained an actual lock of Marilyn’s iconic platinum hair,” they wrote on Instagram.

In the clip, the mogul unwrapped a box to find a silver locket with the hair inside.
“I’m literally going to do some crazy voodoo s**t,” she joked while thanking everyone. “I’m going to channel her.”
“This is so cool,” she continued.
“This is sleeping with me every night. Sorry babe,” she added to boyfriend Pete Davidson who was taking the video.
“The Ripley’s team also filled her Met Gala dressing room with a trove of Marilyn Monroe and JFK memorabilia to help inspire her look,” they added.
On Ripley’s website, they shared a look inside Kardashian’s dressing room including Monroe’s makeup case, a frame of her lip print on a tissue and the ticket to John F. Kennedy’s birthday gala.

Kardashian became the first person besides Monroe to wear the dress. However, after the red carpet, she changed into a replica.
As they wouldn’t alter Monroe’s dress to fit Kardashian, she had to lose 16 pounds to fit it.
And that wasn’t the only dress of Monroe’s that Kardashian wore. She also slipped into her Norman Norell gown she wore to the 1962 Golden Globes.
“To top off my night after The Met, I had the honor of changing into Marilyn Monroe’s Norman Norell dress that she wore to the Golden Globes in 1962 —where she received the Henrietta Award For World Film Favorite,” she revealed on Instagram, holding onto the award while in the green gown. As Chrissy Teigen pointed out in the comments, it would appear that Monroe didn’t put her arms through the arm holes so it was a halter dress on her.
