Who wore it better - Marilyn Munroe or Kim Kardashian?
Kim Kardashian made a dramatic entrance at the Met Gala Ball wearing the very same dress Marilyn Munroe wore to serenade President John F. Kennedy on his 45th birthday in 1962.

I am so honored to be wearing the iconic dress that Marilyn Monroe wore in 1962 to sing “Happy Birthday” to President John F. Kennedy. It is a stunning skintight gown adorned with more than 6,000 hand-sewn crystals by Jean Louis. pic.twitter.com/o9auAd2tF8
After spending 14 hours in the chair getting her hair dyed blonde and a strict diet leading up to the occasion, Kim called it the "original naked dress".
The dress is considered to be one of the world’s most expensive dresses, after Ripley’s museum in Florida purchased it for $6.8 million in 2016.
