If Twitter finally gets that Edit button, thanks Kim Kardashian to talk Elon Musk when they met at the 2022 Met Gala on Monday. Elon, 50, and Kim, 41, came face to face at the Metropolitan Museum of Art during the April 2 event. In the photos seen here, Kim, wearing a replica of the dress she marilyn monroe wore while singing “Happy Birthday” to the president John F. Kennedy in 1962 – talked to Elon while her boyfriend, pete davidsonHe watched with a drink in his hand. corey betKim’s mom’s boyfriend krisjennerremained the founder of SKIMS (and billionaire, for Forbes) chatted with Elon, a man worth an estimated $256 billion.
This isn’t the first time Elon and Kim’s worlds have collided. The Tesla co-founder has been friends with Kim’s ex, Kanye “Ye” Westsince at least 2011, according to Well-informed person. In December 2011, Elons shared a photo of him and Ye in front of a SpaceX capsule. “Kanye’s belief in himself and his incredible tenacity (he performed his first single with his jaw clenched) got him to where he is today. And he fought for his place in the cultural pantheon with a purpose,” Elon wrote of Ye in Time 100 in 2015. In 2019, Musk and his then-girlfriend Grimes stopped by KarJenner’s Christmas Eve party and Kim shared a photo of them all on her Instagram.
Although Kim’s outfit for her conversation with Elon was a replica, she wore the actual Marilyn Monroe dress to walk the Met Gala red carpet. Kim borrowed the dress from Ripley’s Believe It or Not! in Orlando, Fla. “The idea really came to me after the gala in September last year. I thought to myself, what would I have done for the American theme if it hadn’t been the Balenciaga look? What’s the most American thing you can think of? And that’s Marilyn Monroe,” she said. Fashion on the dress “For me, the most Marilyn Monroe moment is when she sang ‘Happy Birthday’ to JFK, it was that look.”
The dress sold for $4.8 million at Julien’s Auctions in 2016. Ripley’s Believe Or Not Museum acquired it. Kim lost 16 pounds in three weeks to fit the original. In the end, she used it for only a few minutes. Kim arrived at the Met Gala, slipped on the multi-million dollar dress and walked upstairs in the original before changing into a replica for the rest of the night.
Oddly enough, Elon isn’t the only filthy rich man Kim and Pete meet. they are near Jeff Bezos and his girlfriend, Lauren Sanchez. Pete was supposed to ride Jeff’s rocket into space, but he backed out at the last minute.
