She could hardly breathe and apparently had to crash-diet like never before, but when Kim Kardashian walked the red carpet at the Met Gala, no one could stop talking about her crystal-embellished Marilyn Monroe dress. The old-school glamour look – famously worn by the ’50s actress when she sang Happy Birthday to US President John F Kennedy – has not only inspired headlines for the reality star, it’s also inspired an idea for her next wedding.

“Kim thinks she’s found ‘The One’ in Pete and they’re already talking marriage,” says an insider close to Kim, 41, who has been dating Saturday Night Live comedian Pete Davidson since October.

“They would love to do something old Hollywood-style, influenced by The Great Gatsby, and have all their A-List friends attend.

“Right now, they both feel like movie stars living the Hollywood dream and they want their big day to have that energy. Like Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, they want to be remembered as a classic showbiz couple who knew how to throw the ultimate party.

“And as for her dress, she wants something similar to what she wore to the Met Ball and is willing to do whatever it takes to look amazing in it.”

Kim sparked controversy when she admitted she had lost 16lbs in three weeks in order to slim down into Marilyn’s dress, which still didn’t do up fully. While many said she is a terrible role model for promoting such extreme diets to look slim, and accused her of “starving” herself, Kim doesn’t care.

“She will do anything to look amazing and feels she was just being disciplined by exercising, wearing sauna suits, and cutting out all carbs and sugar,” we’re told.

“She loved the fit of the dress and wants something like that for when she marries Pete. She is prepared to go to extremes to fit into a tiny, classic slinky wedding dress.”

Kim has been hitched three times. She married music producer Damon Thomas in 2000, splitting four years later. He was followed by basketball star Kris Humphries – a marriage that famously lasted for only 72 days.

Most recently, Kim spent eight years married to rapper Kanye West and the pair have four children, North, Saint, Chicago and Psalm. But friends say the next wedding will top the lot of them. “Kim wants this one to be the celebrity event of the decade,” says heat’s source.

“She’s really excited about the guest list, and wants huge names like Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos, and even royals in the mix. Pete will also be inviting all of his pals from SNL, including Colin Jost who’s married to actress Scarlett Johansson.

“Kim’s also going to ask Amy Schumer to be a maid of honour, and wants her to write a hilarious speech that will bring the house down.”
