Photos posted by collector Scott Fortner show damage to the dress causing Kim K to cool down but the collector made it clear that his comment was not directed against Kim, instead he just wished that appropriate measures have been taken. to protect the costume.
The collector said the dress was more than just a dress, but an iconic piece of American history and should have been treated as such. “It’s a cultural icon. It’s a political symbol. It’s a Hollywood icon,” Fortner said.
The historic dress features more than 6,000 small crystals that were hand-stitched by Jean Louis, and the original price of the dress at the time was $12,000.
The collector pointed out that the damage to the dress was irreparable as the fabric used to make the dress is no longer on the market today.
However, the collector asserted once again that Kim Kardashian is very hot about the incident and that he never intended to smear the model/businesswoman like that, he just expressed his grief at the loss of his family. Indeed such an important American work. Political history and Hollywood history could not have been better taken care of.
