The name of the performance was ‘Happy Birthday, Mr President.’

Sharing the pictures, Kim Kardashian wrote on Instagram, “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 costumier Jean Louis.”

She further added, “Thank you Ripley’s Believe It or Not! for giving me the opportunity to debut this evocative piece of fashion history for the first time since the late Marilyn Monroe wore it. I am forever grateful for this moment.”

According to a report, the sparkling dress has been displayed at ‘Ripley’s Believe It or Not’ museum in Orlando, USA. In 2016, it was purchased for approx $4.81 million, making it one of the most expensive dresses ever sold. However, the original cost of the dress was $12,000.

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star also revealed a huge secret. On a live stream, Kim disclosed that she had to lose 16 pounds in exactly three weeks to fit into this historical outfit.
