Marilyn Monroe’s Subway Dress Makes Auction History

  • Pin it

You know we were wondering why the fashion people keep on reediting Marilyn Monroe with (almost) every model out there? And we said they should stop doing that?

It would appear that not only fashion repeats itself but that’s something people should learn to do also: look what one dress worn by Marilyn can do to the world! Marilyn Monroe’s iconic subway dress from the movie The Seven Year Itch (1955) was auctioned off for $4,6 Million ($5,52 Million with taxes and fees)! Can you believe that? It was part of actress’ Debbie Reynolds (Singin’ in the Rain) private collection and now had to be auctioned off due to Debbie filing for bankruptcy.

In comparison, Audrey Hepburn’s Ascot dress from Breakfast at Tiffany only rose up to $923,187. Also – I always thought the dress was white or blue-ish only to discover to my greatest surprise that it was in fact ivory! (via 1, 2)
