Kim Kardashian Reveals She Wore Another Gorgeous Dress That Belonged to Marilyn Monroe

The icon wore the Norman Norell gown to the Golden Globes in 1962.

Kim Kardashian rocked yet another dress that belonged to Marilyn Monroe. The reality star took to social media to reveal that she wore Monore’s green Norman Norell gown that the legendary icon wore to the 1962 Golden Globes, which is where she received the Henrietta Award For World Film Favorite.

Kardashian explained how she was able to find the gorgeous gown. “In my quest to find the Jean Louis hand-beaded dress that I wore to the [Met] Gala, I discovered @heritageauctions owned Marilyn’s iconic green sequined gown,” she captioned a series of Instagram photos. “Further into my research, I found out that the owner of the Golden Globe that she received that evening was none other than my friend @jeffleatham.”

Naturally, the beauty mogul couldn’t help but gush about getting to now wear two of Monroe’s dresses. “I saw this all as a sign the way that all of the stars aligned,” she continued. “It will forever be one of the greatest privileges of my life to be able to channel my inner Marilyn in this way, on such a special night.”

The first dress Kardashian wore that belonged to Monroe was the Jean Louis in which she sang “Happy Birthday” to John F. Kennedy in 1962. Additionally, the SKIMS founder was also presented with a lock of Monoroe’s hair by Ripley’s Believe It or Not!
