Kim was given the dress on loan from officials at the museum, where the 60-year-old dress has been stored in a temperature-controlled environment since it was purchased for a record $5 million in 2016.
“Great care has been taken to preserve this piece of pop culture history,” Ripley’s said in May.
‘With input from clothing protectors, appraisers and archivists, the condition of the garment was top priority. Believe it or not! the dress didn’t require any adjustments and Kim even turned into a replica after the red carpet!’
