Kim Kardashian shared more insight into what it took to fit into Marilyn Monroe’s iconic ‘Happy Birthday Mr. President’ dress on this week’s The Kardashians.

The 41-year-old successfully tried on a replica dress, but when she tried on the original – owned by Ripley’s Believe It Or Not – it wouldn’t even go up past her hips.

After a grueling three-week regiment of workout and strict dieting, she did fit into the dress, revealing more insight into her workout and her 30-hour peroxide session to have blonde hair like Marilyn for the 2022 Met Gala

Kim almost didn’t even get a chance to try on the dress at all, until her momager Kris Jenner put in a call to Ripley’s.

She ultimately flew down to Ripley’s Orlando headquarters to try on the original dress again… and it fit… sort of.

The zipper wouldn’t go up over her butt, though she did get the dress up, which lead to her continuing her workout regimen in the days leading up to the Met.

The episode cuts back to Los Angeles, as Kim continues working out so she can continue to fit into the Marilyn dress.

She tells her trainer Melissa Alcantara that she’s back down to 118 pounds after she jumped up to 120 pounds, which she said was, ‘tripping me out.’

‘So I fit into the dress, but I’m not gonna stop working out. I have this sauna suit and you put it on and it makes you just sweat. Even if it’s just water weight, it helps,’ Kim says in confession.

Kim’s trainer says for her to do 10 minutes on the treadmill and then another 10 minutes on the Stairmaster, as Kim speaks directly into the camera.

‘We have four days until the Met Ball. I still need to dye my hair blonde, I don’t know when I’m gonna do that, I have only a day to go blonde,’ Kim says.

‘When I thought to go in Marilyn Monroe’s dress – and I know how precious and fragile the dress is, I knew I had to lose at least 10 pounds for it to even go up on me,’ she adds

‘Tomorrow is Met Monday and I didn’t get a lot of sleep because we had to pull an all-nighter to dye my hair blonde,’ Kim adds in confession.

She adds the hair dying process is ‘tedious and annoying’ but adds it’s, ‘dedication’ on her part.

Chris says the last time they did this it took a week to get the color and now they have just two days.

He adds that Kim is ‘so dedicated’ and he’s ‘never met anyone more dedicated than Kim.’

‘It has to be the right color. My hair can’t fall out. We have to get it right. We have one day to dye it. We’re gonna be up for 15 hours,’ Kim says.

A producer asks how many Met Gala’ she’s been to as she counts all the looks up and says she’s gone to eight Met Gala’s and this will be her ninth.

‘This I can’t walk, I can’t sweat, I can’t breathe. If one little stone falls off, I’ll have to pay millions of dollars,’ Kim adds.

Chris adds this year is different because she won’t be leaving the hotel wearing her red carpet look.

‘I can’t walk out of the hotel and walk down. They’re gonna have to put up barriers, get me out of the hotel in a robe. They’re putting a dressing thing on the red carpet, and I’m gonna put it on there,’ Kim says.

A producer asks, ‘Oh, you’re not getting dressed here?’ Kim answers, ‘No, because I can’t sit in a car, I can’t risk it. It’s so fragile, you guys. No one can touch me. So if anyone touches me and gets their oils on the dress… it’s too risky to get in the car and leave from the hotel and do it.’

‘So, all of this – the losing the weight, dying the hair for 30 hours, leaving the hotel in a robe, getting there, changing on the red carpet, just walking to the top of the red carpet, then changing again into a replica of the dress, because we can’t risk sitting in it and eating dinner, is all for maybe 10 minutes of my life, just on the red carpet. Like that’s it,’ Kim says, though Chris adds, ‘It will live in history.’

A producer asks, ‘What do you think people are going to say about you wearing the dress?’

‘I’m a little nervous some people will hate and be like, ‘How dare she think she can just step into Marilyn’s dress, and I get that,’ Kim says.

‘I love that Marilyn was a normal girl and figured it out and became the most famous woman in the entire world. It’s just fascinating,’ Kim says.

‘This year’s Met is all about dedication and hard work and having my own voice and vision. Being determined and making s**t happen. I’ve never had that strong of willpower in my life before,’ Kim says in confession.
