Kim Kardashian is getting heat for allegedly “destroying” the iconic gown worn by Marilyn Monroe. It appears that Kardashian’s big night out at the Met Gala caused some serious wear and tear to the crystal-studded garment and fashion fans aren’t happy. ChadMichael Morrissette, who curates museum and costume exhibits, says he observed irreparable damage to the dress when he saw it on display last Sunday at Ripley’s Believe It or Not! on Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles. He shared his thoughts and pics on his Instagram. As a result of Kardashian wearing the dress up the Met Gala steps, 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. Pictures are circulating online and everyone has an opinion.
