Inside Kim Kardashian’s War to Wear the Marilyn Monroe Dress to the Met Gala


Remember how it felt in December 2012, when everyone was pretty sure the world wasn’t going to end like the Mayan calendar “predicted,” but we couldn’t be, like, 100 percent sure? That’s sort of how it feels watching the lead-up to Kim Kardashian’s Marilyn Monroe Met Gala Moment on this week’s episode of The Kardashians.

There’s a strange tension in the air as the sisters start to prepare their looks for the biggest night in fashion, and Kim has an idea in her head that she just can’t seem to let go of. She wants the Marilyn Monroe “Happy Birthday” dress, and she’ll stop at nothing to get it, going as far as telling the cameras, “I won’t take no for an answer.” Kim seems to have an incredibly surface-level idea of what Monroe’s life was really like, outside of her status as an iconic sex symbol (we’re guessing Kim didn’t see Blonde either)—which resulted in some truly comical scenes where she tries to explain Monroe’s career.

In the episode, Kim’s journey to the Met Gala is stretched about as much as Monroe’s actual dress was when Kim tried it on. In the the meantime, Khloé’s denying thousands of dollars in handouts from Tristan Thompson for their daughter’s birthday party; Kourtney and Travis have melded their flesh to become one dual-human (just kidding, but kind of); and Kris Jenner is wandering around looking like she just stepped off a $15 Frontier Airlines flight to Florida. So, just your typical week at the Kardashian Kompound!
