Marilyn Monroe’s ‘Seven Year Itch’ Dress Sells for $5.6 Million
Fifty-six years later, Marilyn Monroe is still worth a lot of money - $5.6 million, to be exact.
The dress was put up for auction by none other than Debbie Reynolds, a lifetime collector of thousands of Hollywood costumes. According to the report, Reynolds had hoped to open a museum with her collections, but taking care of them had become a financial burden.
Reynolds was reportedly moved to tears when the dress sold for $4.6 million. The buyer will reportedly pay an additional $1 million in commission fees.
