Legendary designer Bob Mackey – Who actually had a hand in making it Marilyn MonroeThe 1962 dress that Kim Kardashian He used to wear this With gala This year – the reality star reacted to the controversial decision not to dress for the fashion event. And he is not proud.
As a refresher, Marilyn wore the iconic gown when she wished John F. Kennedy A Happy Birthday 1962. The dress is now owned Ripley’s Believe It or Not! The museum, which lets Kim wear the red carpet. The SKIMS The founder then switches a replica to protect the historic fit. Those who manage the property of the late star have no problem with the fact that the uniform was worn KUWTK alum, but those who are close to the original designer certainly do not agree!

Jean-Louis The gown was designed when way back, and was made specifically for it Something like hot The star at the time, Bob was Mackie Jean’s fashion assistant and even when he sketched the design when he was just 23 years old !! So, she knows a thing or two about the history of the gown, and let’s just say, seeing it in Kardashian was nothing more than enjoyable to her!
I’m talking Entertainment Weekly On Monday about the 41-year-old’s choice of clothing, Mackie denounced the star for making a “big mistake”, he explained:
“It simply came to our notice then. [Marilyn] There was a goddess. A mad goddess, but a goddess. He was just fabulous. No one takes such pictures. And it was done for him. It is designed for him. This dress should not be seen by anyone else. ”
Apparently he was saying that Kim was foolish to invite him to compare. Of course, he knocked out – but compared to Marilyn? Hmmm. Do you agree with that hot reception?
Her reaction was not as serious as that of many fashion historians who believe that Kim and Marilyn’s different sizes caused the dress to be damaged during the event. Considering that Kimi Kecks couldn’t even zip up the back of the dress, we’d say it seems reasonable that the material could be stretched.

“There are all sorts of problems with the actual preservation of clothing and things like oxygen can affect clothing. Usually, these garments are kept too much in a controlled environment and we see it with mats. Costume Institute They are so careful about how these historical items are handled. So, it was quite disturbing that he was able to wear it. I personally wish he wore a replica instead of the original thing.
Yeah Al that sounds pretty crap to me, Looks like BT aint for me either. The model is not supposed to move it around the country for different accessories.

Internally, this is not the first time Bob has shared his hostile views about the Uber-famous family. Last year, the 82-year-old roasted the team for their future fame, he says Page six:
“The Kardashians are very attractive and some absolutely beautiful, but they are famous for being famous.”
While he explicitly acknowledged how successful they were at making money, he also called for copying their designs, adding:
“You know, they’ve made a lot of money, so I guess there’s something to be said for that. A couple of them really copied CheerIts clothes are just line for line, beat for beat, which is interesting. It’s like, whatever. I did those [designs] So many years ago that I didn’t even think about copying them or anything else. It’s really a compliment. “
Dismissed in such a shady way! He is certainly not a fan! And Kim’s situation doesn’t seem to be helping either.
The fact that he was one of the people who designed the piece must have weighed heavily on his opinion in this ongoing conversation! Don’t you think, Peregrine reader ?! Are you next to Bob or Kim about this? Sound off (below)!
