MOVE over Kim, fans say there’s a new Kardashian sister channeling Marilyn Monroe’s legacy.
Kim’s younger sister Khloe shared a video on TikTok of herself getting glamoured up before her big 38th birthday party, and fans and followers expressed how much the blonde reality star looked like the ’60’s icon.

In the video, a team of makeup and hair artists put the finishing touches on Khloe’s birthday look.
The model looked up and around, as stylists worked on her hair and face.
In the comments section, fans said even though Kim got to wear her gown, Khloe is the true Marilyn clone.
“You’re a better fit for that Marilyn dress,” one person commented. “Go on with your bad self.”
A second followed with: “You’re giving Marilyn Monroe lowkey,” while a third instantly added: “Marilyn vibes and I love it.”
While one fan said plainly: “Kim who?”
Kim and Khloe aren’t the only Kardashians to be compared to Marilyn.
In May, Kylie Jenner received praise for her portrayal of the star in a photoshoot, as she stunned in the legend’s iconic blonde hairstyle and a red lip for the shoot.
Photos surfaced showing the 24-year-old posing in a body-hugging lavender dress mimicking Marilyn’s sultry 1950s wardrobe.
The number was equipped with a giant bow on the back, a matching pair of long, full-length gloves, and gaudy diamond jewellery.
Kylie perfectly played the role of the blonde-haired songstress, copying many of Marilyn’s famed stances and sexy appearance.
Some shots even showed the reality star surrounded by eligible bachelors fawning over her with cut-out red hearts, showing the late star’s sought-after beauty.
MESSING A GOWN
Meanwhile, Kim, 41, is still being slammed by fans who say she ruined Marilyn Monroe’s famous “Happy Birthday” dress, which the reality star wore to the Met Gala.
The gown was originally worn by the Some Like it Hot star in 1962, to serenade President Kennedy at his 45th birthday celebration.
When Kim wore it 60 years later, fans accused her of damaging and tearing the historical item.
But Ripley’s has taken to the TV star’s defense, shutting down rumors that she “destroyed” the national treasure.
The reality star did not damage the dress, according to Amanda Joiner, Ripley’s VP of Publishing and Licensing.
In an article released on the official Ripley’s website, she shut down rumors that Kim had “destroyed” Marilyn’s iconic garment.
Amanda, who was with Kim on the entire day of the Met Gala said: “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.”
The article also addressed shocking the before and after photos that circulated on social media and showed damage to the dress.
It turns out that the garment was already a little worse for wear when the museum acquired it in 2016.
“A report written on the dress’s condition in early 2017 states, ‘a number of the seams are pulled and worn. This is not surprising given how delicate the material is. There is puckering at the back by the hooks and eyes,’ among other instances of damage.”
Although Ripley’s acknowledges the controversy surrounding Kim’s choice to wear the dress, the article emphasised: “She did not, in any way, damage the garment in the short amount of time it was worn at the Met Gala.”
