Since Marilyn Monroe was 5’ 6” and Kim Kardashian is 5’ 2” someone must have adjusted the hemline of the famous Marilyn Monroe 1962 Jean Louis “Happy Birthday, Mr. President “ dress for Kim Kardashian’s Met Gala red carpet “Gilded Age” performance for the In America: Anthology of Fashion exhibition.     Yes, everyone is talking about the white fur cover-up at the back where the dress didn’t fit over the Kardashian toosh but, as far as I know, no one has mentioned the height difference.  We assume the Ripley Believe or Not Museum knew there had to be adjustment to the dress they paid $5 million for in 2016 and have preserved ever since in a case which cost $65,000.  So, the burning question is – was the hemline left shortened, then adjusted back to its original length, somehow? Or, perhaps more likely, did Kim totter on 4 inch heels?
