Kim wore the unforgettable sparkly dress that made waves in the 60s for its sheer sparkly look that gives the illusion of being completely see-through. The sleeveless ensemble features a wide round neckline, thousands of shimmering diamantes, and a figure-skimming silhouette accentuating Kim's curves aesthetically.
Kim wore the ensemble with a white faux fur jacket elegantly draped on her shoulders. She teamed the look with matching high heels, diamond earrings, rings, and her long signature nails. Additionally, the star's perfectly-coiffed platinum blonde hair made for an unmistakable reference to Marilyn.
Pete accompanied Kim in a black tuxedo. The comedian chose a double-breasted blazer with notch lapel collars and front patch pockets. He teamed it with an embellished brooch, sunglasses, dress shoes, sleek hairdo and groomed beard.
Meanwhile, the dress has been on the display at Ripley's Believe It or Not museum in Orlando since its purchase in 2016 for a whopping USD 4.81 million. The insane price makes it one of the most expensive dresses ever sold. Kim's visit to the museum on April 23 with boyfriend Pete Davidson led fans to speculate that she was choosing the ensemble for Met Gala.
