Kim Kardashian stuns in iconic Marilyn Monroe dress alongside Pete Davidson

Kim Kardashian set pulses racing on the Met Gala red carpet as she proudly walked hand in hand with beau Pete Davidson while wearing Marilyn Monroe’s iconic gold dress.

The reality star, 41, wore the infamous outfit wore by the actress 60 years ago to sing happy birthday to then-president John F Kennedy on his 45th birthday.

And she admitted she had to lose 16 pounds in order to fit into what has been dubbed the “world’s most expensive dress” worth a reported $4.8 million.

In order to fully do the stunning outfit justice, the SKIMS founder even bleached her normally dark locks blonde and matched it with a dazzling pair of diamond earrings.

She made her grand entrance to the event at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and certainly didn’t disappoint those eagerly awaiting her appearance.

While many were expecting an extravagant entrance alongside Saturday Night Live star Pete, 28, few would have expected what was to come.

Her dramatic transformation was breathtaking and fans quickly headed to social media to shower her with praise.

One fan gushed: “KIM KARDASHIAN. IN MARILYN MONROE’S HAPPY BIRTHDAY MR PRESIDENT DRESS. THAT IS ALL. #MetGala.”

Kim and Pete posed for pics as the last people to enter the Met Gala 

Another commented: “this dress is stunning on Kim Kardashian #kimkardashian #metgala #MetGala2022.”

A third wrote: “You can say whatever you want about Kim Kardashian but she CAN DRESS. stunning #MetGala.”

And a fourth added: “Kim Kardashian is a vision in that Marilyn Monroe gown, absolutely stunning #MetGala #MetGala2022.”

But not everyone was impressed, with one user slamming her attempt to mirror Marilyn. They wrote: “Kim Kardashian’s attempt to mirror the divine Marilyn Monroe predictably falls flat … even wearing Marilyn’s actual dress!!!

“A cheap peroxide wig and spackle cannot mask her lack of Marilyn’s true appeal and genuineness!!!”

Pete, while overshadowed by his partner, looked dapper as he donned a stylish slim-fit black suit and black tie combo.

He completed the look with a pair of black shades as he joined arm-in-arm on the red carpet.

The comic was happy to take a step back from the limelight though and praised his belle for how good she looked to the show’s hosts, before joking she stopped him wearing a cap.

Elon Musk’s child, 18, granted name and gender change

Elon Musk’s 18-year-old child has been granted a name and gender change, officially making her Vivian Jenna Wilson.

According to court documents on Thursday, a Los Angeles County Superior Court judge approved the petition and asked for a new birth certificate to be issued by the state to reflect the changes.

Vivian chose to remove Musk as her last name, opting for Wilson, which is her mother Justine’s maiden name.

On Tuesday, it was revealed that Vivian – who was given the moniker Xavier Alexander Musk at birth – filed the petition back in April, shortly after her 18th birthday.

The teen listed her name change reason as “gender identity and the fact that I no longer live with or wish to be related to my biological father [Elon] in any way, shape or form.”

Musk, 50, previously claimed he supported transgender issues. However, he came under fire in 2020 for criticizing the use of preferred pronouns.

“I absolutely support trans, but all these pronouns are an esthetic nightmare,” he tweeted at the time, adding, “Pronouns suck.”

On the other hand, mom Justine expressed how proud she was that Vivian was living authentically, quoting her on Twitter.

“‘I had a weird childhood,’ my 18-year-old said to me,” Wilson, 49, wrote after news of Vivian’s gender and name change petition began circulating online.

She then continued the conversation, quoting the child as saying, “I can’t believe I’m as normal-seeming as I am.”

Wilson then told the teen, “I’m very proud of you,” to which Vivian replied, “I’m proud of myself!”

In addition to Vivian, Musk shares the teen’s 18-year-old twin brother, Griffin, with ex-wife Justine, along with 16-year-old triplets Kai, Saxon and Damian.

The SpaceX founder also has two children with ex-girlfriend Grimes — son X AE A-XII, 2, and daughter Exa Dark Sideræl, 6 months.
