Getting to wear her dress isn’t the only connection Kim Kardashian has to Marilyn Monroe. In fact, she was given a very special gift – a lock of Marilyn Monroe’s hair. According to The Sun, Ripley’s Believe It or Not also gifted Kim a silver Tiffany’s box. Inside the box is a lock of Marilyn Monroe’s hair.
Needless to say, Kim was shocked by the gift.
“Oh, my God,” she starts. “I’m literally going to do some crazy voodoo s**t [to] channel her,” she jokes.
Of course, that’s not all. She also thanks them for the gift.
“This is so special to me. Thank you so much.”
Bad news for Pete Davidson though, he won’t be getting to sleep with Kim again any time soon. She jokes that now she will be sleeping with the hair every night.
“Wow, this is sleeping with me every night. Sorry babe.”

I am so honored to be wearing the iconic dress that Marilyn Monroe wore in 1962 to sing “Happy Birthday” to President John F. Kennedy. It is a stunning skintight gown adorned with more than 6,000 hand-sewn crystals by Jean Louis. pic.twitter.com/o9auAd2tF8

Kim Kardashian’s night in the dress
Kim Kardashian shocked fans when she wore Marilyn Monroe’s dress to the red carpet at the Met Gala. Apparently, the dress has never been worn other than Kim and Marilyn herself. So, it was really quite the privilege for Kim to get to wear this outfit.
“The multi-million-dollar dress has rarely been separated from its original dress form, let alone worn by anyone other than Monroe,” Ripley Believe it or Not says. “Great care was taken to preserve this piece of pop culture history.”
Of course, they did everything they could to keep the dress safe while not on the dress form. Vintage clothing can become very fragile so it was important to keep the fabric in the best condition.
“With input from garment conservationists, appraisers, and archivists, the garment’s condition was top priority,” they say.
They worked so hard to keep the dress in its original form, they couldn’t even change it for Kim’s measurements. because of this, she had to lose 16 pounds in just three weeks to make sure she could fit into the iconic garment.
