Kim Kardashian Goes Entirely Makeup Free During Pre-Met Gala Fitting


When Kim Kardashian commits to a look she commits—and last night’s Met Gala was probably the best example of how far she’ll go. On top of dying her hair blonde to channel Marilyn Monroe’s iconic “Happy Birthday Mr. President” look, Kim ditched her signature body makeup so that she could give her dress the white glove treatment it deserves.

And apparently, fittings were no different. Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! (who own Marilyn’s dress and lent it to Kim) posted a video of her trying on the dress to their Instagram account, where Kim can be seen wearing literal white gloves without one ounce of makeup on her face.

As Ripley’s put it on Instagram, “Great care was taken to preserve this piece of pop culture history. With input from garment conservationists, appraisers, and archivists, the garment’s condition was top priority. Believe It or Not! no alterations were to be made to the dress and Kim even changed into a replica after the red carpet!⁠”

Kim only wore the dress for a few minutes on the carpet, and told Vogue “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 and I won’t be wearing the kind of body makeup I usually do,” she said. “Everything had to be specifically timed and I had to practice walking up the stairs.”
