This year's theme is America: An Anthology of Fashion, a theme where the heroes of American design are central. The stars were dressed by the best designers such as Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Saint Laurent, Gucci and Off-White. Every year is a new challenge, because every outfit must be approved by Vogue's editor-in-chief and organizer of the prestigious fashion gala: Anna Wintour. Dress code Gilded Glamor is a reference to the Gilded Age; a period from 1870 to 1890 and known as a time of unprecedented prosperity, industrialization and cultural change in The Big Apple, among others. On to the looks!

Kim Kardashian in Jean Louis

To start with the most talked about outfit: Kim Kardashian's. Marilyn Monroe's iconic dress was removed from the Ripley's museum especially for the occasion. Monroe wore the dress in 1962 during a performance for John F. Kennedy, just months before her death. Kim K. is known for her curves and the vintage Jean Louis was not exactly a perfect fit. Since the dress couldn't be altered, Kardashian had to lose a whopping seven pounds to fit into it. A dressing room was set up especially for Kim, so that after she left the red carpet she could climb into a replica to sit and eat safely without damaging the original dress. The vintage Jean Louis is also the most expensive dress in the world. During an auction, the item went under the hammer for no less than 5 million dollars. In addition to a beautiful dress, Kardashian also brought another special accessory to the gala: her new boyfriend Pete Davidson. The dress was not the only thing Kim K. received from Ripley's. A lock of Monroe's hair was also presented to her by the museum.Embed from Getty Images
