Saturday, actress Debbie Reynolds sold some of her collection of Hollywood memorabilia. Three dresses once worn by Marilyn Monroe brought $2.7 million, but the star of the show was the most famous dress in Hollywood history. It’s the white halter dress Marilyn wore in “The Seven Year Itch” that billowed up when she stood over a subway grate. The mysterious, unknown buyer placed bids over the phone, finally paying $4.6 Million for the dress plus another million to the auction house.
- I’d say Elton John bought himself one heckuva Father’s Day Gift!
- The dresses weren’t just worn by Marilyn Monroe, they were taken off her by nearly all of the Kennedy’s.
- Lady Gaga’s meat dress was going to be auctioned off, but the “Use or Freeze By” date had expired.
- NOTE: Big Al is planning on auctioning off the dress he wore when he played “Marilyn” at one of our Comedy Nights Out. Minimum bid: $4.06.
