Iconic Marilyn Monroe Dress Sells for $5.6 Million at Auction


The iconic white dress that Marilyn Monroe wore in The Seven Year Itch has sold for $5.6 million at auction in Beverly Hills. The dress, which was worn by Monroe in the famous subway-grate scene, had belonged to Debbie Reynolds and was sold as part of an attempt to auction off her Hollywood memorabilia collection. The dress actually sold for $4.6 million, but the auction company is due a $1 million commission, pushing the price upward. [CNN]
