Also available on the usa app

Turns out not everyone was a fan of Kim Kardashian wearing Marilyn Monroe's famous "Happy Birthday" dress to the Met Gala earlier this month. Bob Mackie, who made the original sketch of the dress, criticized the reality star for wearing the gown to fashion's biggest night while talking to Entertainment Weekly. "I thought it was a big mistake," Bob told the outlet. "[Marilyn] was a goddess. A crazy goddess, but a goddess. She was just fabulous. Nobody photographs like that. And it was done for her. It was designed for her. Nobody else should be seen in that dress."
