When the business mogul wore the outfit at the 2022 Met Gala in May, she raised eyebrows. She further infuriated people when she admitted that she had to lose a significant amount of weight in order to fit into the dress because it couldn’t be adjusted.

A few weeks after the event, Scott Fortner, a collector of Marilyn Monroe, stated that the dress had sustained irreparable damage.

Fortner, who works to authenticate and verify Monroe memorabilia, shared some photographs via his Instagram page to show what appeared to be a stretched and buckled fabric as well as missing crystals on the back of the dress.

Owned by Ripley’s Believe It or Not!, the famous dress was worn by late Hollywood legend, Marilyn Monroe, when she sang for President John F Kennedy on the occasion of his 45th birthday.

During an interview with TODAY Show which aired on Tuesday, the SKIMS founder said she wore the dress for a total of four minutes, after which it was carefully taken off her by handlers.

She said,

“I showed up to the red carpet in a robe and slippers, and I put the dress on, on the bottom of the carpet, then went up the stairs. I probably had it on for a total of three minutes, four minutes, and then I changed at the top of the stairs,”

When the interviewer asked if the rumors about her damaging the dress are true, she answered,

“No”.

She also credited Ripley’s for their meticulous care while getting her into and out of the dress.
