Kim Kardashian has been accused of copying Kanye West's ex-girlfriend Amber Rose's look for her Met Gala outfit, which saw the reality star wear Marilyn Monroe's iconic 60-year-old dress from 1962.

The dress was previously sold to Ripley's 'Believe It or Not' museum in Orlando for almost $5 million. It was believed that the Gentlemen Prefer Blondes actress originally paid $1,440 for the Jean Louis dress.

It was famously worn by Monroe when she sang "Happy Birthday, Mr President" to then President John F. Kennedy on his 45th birthday at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

Fans of the SKIMS co-founder took to social media, accusing her of biting Amber Rose's style by wearing sporting platinum hair and a tight figure-hugging dress.

One user wrote: "Ok, but if was so Iconic, why Kim Kardashian looks more like Amber Rose than Marilyn Monroe".

Another one commented: "So it’s not me that I thought Kim Kardashian was looking a lot like Amber Rose too!?".

Kim also faced backlash for admitting that she had to lose 16 points to fit into the dress, telling Vogue:

"I told them, 'Give me like three weeks'. I had to lose 16 pounds [seven kilograms] today to be able to fit this. Since I haven't eaten carbs or sugar in about three weeks, we're eating pizza and doughnut party back at the hotel".
