Since Kim said she was “starving” after the Met Gala, her plans after the event included eating pizza and donuts and, as a result, wearing another Marilyn dress.

The second dress was the one Marilyn wore at the 1962 Golden Globes, where she won the Henrietta Award (World Film Favorite) alongside Charlton Heston. They would be the last Golden Globes that Marilyn would attend before her death a few months later.

Vogue described Norman Norell’s gown as “one of the most memorable fashion moments in Golden Globes history, that’s almost priceless.”

“I saw all of this as a sign of the way all the stars aligned. It will forever be one of the greatest privileges of my life to be able to channel my inner Marilyn in this way, on such a special night.”

However, as Chrissy Teigen pointed out, Kim didn’t wear Marilyn’s second dress in the same way that Marilyn herself did, as Kim said she “didn’t look good” without her arms through the holes Marilyn wore on the front part. her doing the original backless dress.

Kim also had to wear Marilyn’s first dress in a different way. She wore a coat on the Met Gala red carpet, as her original dress could not be altered and could not fit over her butt.
