Prior to wearing the late singer's iconic dress to the 2022 Met Gala, the Kardashians star, 41, was gifted a lock of Monroe's hair from the Ripley's Believe It or Not Museum headquarters in Orlando, Fla.
"Oh, my God, I'm literally going to do some crazy voodoo s--t [to] channel her," Kardashian joked. "This is so special to me. Thank you so much. This is so cool. Wow, this is sleeping with me every night."
She then appeared to turn to boyfriend Pete Davidson and said, "Sorry babe."
The SKIMS CEO attended the fashion's biggest night on May 2 wearing the Bob Mackie-designed dress that Monroe wore when she famously sang "Happy Birthday Mr. President" to John F. Kennedy in 1962.
Though she made it look easy as she strutted down the red carpet with Davidson, Kardashian had to go on a strict no-carb and no-sugar diet to be able to fit into the garment, revealing that she lost 16 pounds in three weeks to achieve the look.
"I would wear a sauna suit twice a day, run on the treadmill, completely cut out all sugar and all carbs, and just eat the cleanest veggies and protein," she told Vogue on the red carpet. "I didn't starve myself, but I was so strict."
After three weeks of dieting, Kardashian celebrated in her hotel room by throwing a donut and pizza party. In videos shared on her Instagram Stories on May 2, the reality star showed off a mini donut section and a stack of pizza boxes on a table.
"You guys, I haven't had carbs or sugar in almost a month," she said. "Definitely three weeks. This pizza—I'm so excited!"
