Marilyn Monroe's gown not damaged, Ripley's claims


A US museum has denied claims that an iconic Marilyn Monroe gown was left damaged after Kim Kardashian wore it at the Met Gala last month.

Playing that สล็อตxo some people use emotions to bet, so they don't realize that we're using too much emotion to play the game, and in the blink of an eye, it can knock you out.

Recent images appear to show stretched fabric and missing crystals from the dress, according to Monroe historians.

But the gown's owner, Ripley's Believe It or Not, says a "calculated risk" was made in allowing the dress to be worn and it was not damaged "in any way".

Monroe wore it when she sang Happy Birthday to President Kennedy in 1962.

Scott Fortner, who has curated his own private collection of Marilyn Monroe artefacts, posted photos online earlier this week that he said showed "significant" damage after it was loaned to the reality TV star.

Additional images have now been shared online by author Darrell Rooney purportedly showing damage to the gown's shoulder straps.

Ripley's Believe It or Not was widely criticised for allowing the TV star to wear the fragile gown. However, on Thursday it rejected the damage claims.

"From the bottom of the Met steps, where Kim got into the dress, to the top where it was returned, the dress was in the same condition it started in," Amanda Joiner, Ripley's vice-president of publishing and licensing, said in a statement.

Ripley's said that a condition report from 2017 stated "a number of the seams are pulled and worn. This is not surprising given how delicate the material is. There is puckering at the back by the hooks and eyes".
