Kim Kardashian wore this dress on a simple whim! she followed her dress and ruined a historic piece of American pop culture! it’s obvious that the size of her hips, the dress that was made for Marilyn Monroe’s body would end up ruining her fabric, sad! pic.twitter.com/SN7vYgAlf3– Meg (@EminemIsOurKing) June 13, 2022
I’m a fan of Marilyn and this was a tragedy heralded for me. IT IS CLEAR that it would ruin a dress sewn onto the owner’s body! Kardasha has the money to replicate this dress with ANY designer. But for hypar he did what he did. Congratulations on the “respect” https://t.co/9Qb7EJFN2c– Maira Medeiros ??? (@mairamedeiros) June 13, 2022
Hey guys, look at this situation? there is no way to defend it, the garment was historical and the designers themselves did not like this attitude of Kim Kardashian wearing it,
It had to be something unique and used by one person: Marilyn Monroe herself. indignant! pic.twitter.com/3nF0lVGVF1
