Kim Kardashian wearing Marilyn Monroe‘s iconic dress would probably be A-OK in the late icon’s book — so says her estate, anyway … flying in the face of what her self-proclaimed biggest fans are saying.

Nick Woodhouse — President/CMO of Authentic Brands Group, which runs Monroe’s estate — tells TMZ … he and his partners believe Marilyn would’ve been thrilled to have seen KK rocking her legendary gown to the Met Gala.

Its presence at the centre of fashion and pop culture so many years later is quite remarkable in ABG’s eyes. They tell us that Monroe would have felt the same way.

Kim is the one who will wear the dress again. Woodhouse says that there are many similarities between Kim and Marilyn, namely the fact that they are strong, independent entrepreneurs who love being in front the camera.

Now, if you are wondering if Kim ran this by her estate… the answer to that question is no. However, it doesn’t seem like she had to. The dress technically belongs Ripley’s Believe It or Not museum. But it’s all good because ABG claims she went through the proper channels.

Even if she had come to them for a blessing we are told that they would have given it to her. The number of shout-outs they get now after the Gala is overwhelming positive and it has created a lot of new exposure for people who may not remember Marilyn.

This is significant because a few so-called Marilyn experts, including people who have written books about her, have chirped up about Kim going all Marilyn… saying that she wasn’t worthy and that it was a slap in MM’s face.

Not so, per ABG. They say Kim did a great job in Marilyn’s memory and they appreciate it.
