Kim Kardashian channels Marilyn Monroe AGAIN for Dolce & Gabbana as she puts on a busty display


Kim Kardashian has channeled Marilyn Monroe again months after wearing the icon’s dress at the Met Gala and as Ana de Armas is set to play her in a soon-to-be-released biopic. 

The 41-year-old reality star put on quite the busty display as she was featured in a steamy promo for Dolce & Gabbana released on Thursday. 

 Kim put on an eye-popping display in a cleavage-baring black dress from the Italian luxury house as she sat in the back of a limo while several cameras flashed into the vehicle.

She sported a short blonde wig featuring voluminous curls which looked exactly like classic beauty Marilyn’s iconic locks. 

Kim gave sultry looks into the camera before popping up to grab a slice of pizza from a box sitting next to her.

She passionately chewed on a slice before throwing it down and then put on even more racy poses and even belted out a laugh.

It ended with the hashtag #CiaoKim and promoted the upcoming Dolce & Gabbana women’s spring-summer 2023 fashion show during Milan Fashion Week on Saturday at 2:30pm CEST. 

The campaign comes at an interesting time as Ana de Armas stars as Marilyn Monroe in biopic Blonde which will expand to more theaters on September 23, before premiering on Netflix on September 28.

Back in June, Kim was at the center of controversy as a Marilyn Monroe devotee accused her of damaging the iconic nude gown the actress wore to sing ‘Happy Birthday’ to then-President John F. Kennedy in 1962 when she modeled it at the Met Gala the previous month.

The Marilyn Monroe Collection shared photos of the dress allegedly on display at Ripley’s Believe It or Not! on Instagram back on June 13, claiming it now has ‘missing crystals’ and some were ‘left hanging by a thread.’

The viral images in question were taken by ChadMichael Morrisette at the museum’s Hollywood location on June 12, according to the account run by historian and collector Scott Fortner. 

‘So much for keeping “the integrity of the dress and the preservation.” @ripleysbelieveitornot, was it worth it?’ read one caption mocking a statement Ripley’s had released about the reality star borrowing the dress.

Back in June, Kim was at the center of controversy as a Marilyn Monroe devotee accused her of damaging the iconic nude gown the actress wore to sing 'Happy Birthday' to then-President John F. Kennedy in 1962 when she modeled it at the Met Gala the previous month

Kardashian, 41, was loaned the gown by officials at the museum, where the 60-year-old dress has been stored in a temperature-controlled environment since it was bought for a record-breaking $5 million in 2016. 

‘Great care was taken to preserve this piece of pop culture history,’ Ripley’s said in May. 

‘With input from garment conservationists, appraisers, and archivists, the garment’s condition was top priority. Believe It or Not! no alterations were to be made to the dress and Kim even changed into a replica after the red carpet!⁠’ 

Hundreds of fans took to the comments to point out the alleged damage in the ‘before and after’ photos shared by the Marilyn Monroe Collection, though there was no way to confirm the validity of the images. 

‘Missing so many crystals and those tears,’ one person wrote. ‘What a disaster!!’

‘Not only the stretching around the zipper, but if you look at the upper-ish left side, there are several crystals missing!’ another added. 

‘Damage has been done, and it can’t be fixed,’ someone else griped. 

‘The fabric is torn. Imagine what could have happened to it if Kim had worn the dress even longer. I’m so sad to see this.’ 

DailyMail.com has reached out to representatives for Kardashian and Ripley’s Believe It or Not! for comment.

Kardashian was the first person to don the gown since it was worn by Monroe in 1962. She admitted she lost 16 pounds in three weeks to fit into the dress, but she was still unable to zip it.
