EW: Bob Mackie, 82, who drew the original sketch for the Jean Louis dress Marilyn Monroe made famous when she cooed "Happy Birthday" to lover JFK, is finally speaking out about Kim Kardashian wearing the garment ... and he's against. "I thought it was a big mistake," Mackie said this week. His point was not about the historical significance of the fragile garment, but that the dress was made for Marilyn, was unique to her, so should not have been worn by another.
