Kim Kardashian accused of damaging historic dress

Sixty years later, Kardashian worked with Ripley's to wear it to the Met Gala.

Morrissette says the garment now has a damaged zipper, shredded fabric by its hooks, stress on its shoulder straps and is missing beads and sequins.

Morrissette says he previously handled the dress in 2016 when he displayed it for Julien’s Auctions, where Ripley's purchased it for $4.8 million.

Marilyn wore it one night, and it was fit to her body. It was like skin on her body," says Morrissette.

According to Vogue, she only wore the dress for a matter of minutes before changing into a replica so as not to damage the original.

“I’m extremely respectful to the dress and what it means to American history.

I would never want to sit in it or eat in it or have any risk of any damage to it
