The Met Gala is a yearly pre-wedding tradition for the rich and famous. This year’s theme was “Manus x Machina,” which means man (or woman) + machine, hence the idea of robots taking over jobs in society. The Kardashians seemed to have deemed this as an appropriate topic for their family evening gowns by using Marilyn Monroe as inspiration.
The “kim kardashian met gala 2013” is the most recent of her many appearances at the Met Gala. This time around, she wore a Marilyn Monroe gown with Pete Davidson by her side.

Kim Kardashian was stunning in Marilyn Monroe’s famous gown as she walked the Met Gala red carpet with beau Pete Davidson.
The 41-year-old was said to be wearing the gorgeous gown that the late actress wore to wish President John F Kennedy a happy birthday in 1962.
And she didn’t let us down, turning heads in the ensemble at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, complete with freshly blonde hair.
The mother-of-four looked radiant as she walked up the stairs to the VIP party on the arm of the SNL comic, who assisted her as she struggled to walk.
In front of the cameras, they put on a show of affection, with Pete on the carpet maintaining his arm around the Kardashians star.
As lightbulbs sparkled before them, the actor, dressed in a black suit and glossy shoes, leaned in to kiss the top of her head.

Kim revealed to companion Lala on the red carpet how much effort went into ensuring she was allowed to wear Marliyn’s outfit, which had been kept under lock and key at a Ripley’s Believe It Or Not museum and couldn’t be changed.

‘I put it on and it was too small for me.’
‘I had to shed 16 pounds to fit into this.’ It seemed like I was playing a part since it was such a difficult task.
‘I don’t think they expected me to pull it off, but I did.’
