Kim Kardashian is back in the news for another take on Marilyn Monroe style. The 43-year-old made 2022 headlines for squeezing her curves into a dress once worn by the Hollywood icon as she attended that year's Met Gala, and it looks like she's back for more. Channeling major Marilyn vibes in her Thursday Instagram share, Kim braved a sheer, chain mail dress as she flaunted her bombshell figure, although not everyone was a fan. While Kim's IG fans left her over 500,000 likes, those seeing the images on The Daily Mail wondered if the images were "flattering."

Opting for the fabric adored by actress Megan Fox, the SKIMS founder struck poses as she showed off her curves, flashing a fair amount of chest before accentuating her famous backside.

These aren’t very flattering photos of Kim’s face," the user said.
