Kim Kardashian can’t get enough Marilyn moments.

The reality star took an infamous walk down the 2022 Met Gala red carpet wearing Marilyn Monroe’s dress back in May, and she was at it again this week.

Kardashian, 41, posted the video on her Instagram account yesterday channeling the iconic Hollywood blonde in a Dolce & Gabbana video ahead of her appearance at the spring/summer 2023 show during Milan Fashion Week.

“An appetizer before the show. #CiaoKim,” she captioned the sultry post.

In the black-and-white video, she wears her platinum hair in a short, teased style à la Monroe and lounges in a limo wearing a slinky black lace slip dress from the Italian designer as photographers try to get an image.

The “Kardashians” star eats pizza in the clip as flash bulbs go off, laughing and striking plenty of coy glances at the camera. The clip invites viewers to tune in to watch the spring/summer 2023 runway show in Milan live on Saturday at 8:30 a.m. EST.

Her followers were loving the Marilyn vibes, including brother Rob Kardashian, who wrote “Ciaoooo.”

Another Kardashian Kommenter came in the form of sister Khloé, who wrote, “All hail” on her sibling’s sexy vid and also shared a video on her Stories showing off some white tees featuring images from the ad and the words “Kim Dolce & Gabbana” underneath.

“How gorgeous does Keeks look for this Dolce & Gabbana ad?” she said as the camera panned over an array of shirts featuring different photos. “Kimberly, you are killin’ it. I can not wait to see you in Milan, boo. On my way!,” she added, hinting that Kardashian may make an appearance on the runway, with her family supporting from the front row.

Momager Kris Jenner also shared a video of her own Kim tees on her Stories, saying “I can not wait for this collection to launch. It’s gonna be really fabulous. Can’t wait for the show, it’s almost time!”

Kim teased a collab with Dolce & Gabbana in another black-and-white ad she posted yesterday, featuring the Skims founder getting off a private plane and receiving a bouquet of roses as a group of photographers try to take her picture. The video was captioned, “Ciao Milano, #CiaoKim #DolceGabbana.”

The Marilyn moments didn’t stop there for the fashion entrepreneur, who wore a textured white bustier dress by Dolce & Gabbana along with peep-toe mules and an oversized white coat worn off the shoulders while out and about in Milan today.

As for the show, it would come as no surprise if the entire Kar-Jenner family makes an appearance; Kourtney Kardashian’s Italian wedding to Travis Barker earlier this year was exclusively hosted by Dolce & Gabbana, with the whole crew wearing archival and new designs from the fashion house for the entire weekend.

As Page Six Style previously reported, the lavish affair netted the brand more than $25 million in media impact value within the first 24 hours of the event.

It remains to be seen how big of a splash Kim will make on Saturday.
