Mackie presented Kims at the Met Gala in an interview with Entertainment Weekly. He claims the dress was designed for Marilyn Monroe. He believes it was disrespectful to Kim Kardashian to wear it.
I thought this was a big mistake. [Marilyn] was a mad lord. She was not a god. She was just amazing. Nobody pictures like that. It was designed for her. It was designed for her. Nobody else should be seen in that dress.
When Bob was 23 years old, he created an original sketch for the design. Now, Bob is a style icon. His appearance has been recognizable for decades.
