Host Hoda Kotb asked the reality star: “We keep seeing stuff like, ‘The dress is ruined’… All of that is not true?”

Kim replied: “No. Ripley’s [and I] worked together so well; there were handlers in gloves that put it on me.

“It was such a process… I showed up to the red carpet in a robe and slippers, and I put the dress on on the bottom of the carpet, went up the stairs … I probably had it on for three minutes, four minutes.”

Kim added: “I respect [Monroe]. I understand how much this dress means to American history.

“And with the theme [of the Met Gala] being American, I thought, ‘What’s more American than Marilyn Monroe singing happy to the President of the United States?’”

In their defence of the star, a spokesperson for Ripley’s said last week: “From the bottom of the Met steps, where Kim got into the dress, to the top where it was returned, the dress was in the same condition it started in.”

Kim also talked about her controversial weight loss for the event, saying: “I looked at it like a role. And I really wanted to wear this dress. It was really important to me.
