    Marilyn Monroe's 'Subway' Dress sells for $4.6 million at Debbie Reynolds Auction.

    That iconic flock that flew up as Marilyn Monroe stood on a subway grate in "The Seven Year Itch" sold at an auction for $4.6 million.
    It was estimated to fetch between $1 and $2 million!
    Wow, wonder if the person who bought it, will ever wear it?? :lol:

    Say what you will about Marilyn but she probably washed the stains out of her dresses.

    I saw this dress along with many others in Vegas at her casino. It was gorgeous! There was so much small detail on the dress in person, that did not come across on screen. It had faded to a warm ivory and was not the brilliant white as seen in the movie.

    Oh wow, lucky you!!
    It does look like a plain ordinary white dress, I can't see any of the tiny details. I bet it was gorgeous~

    Debbie Reynolds had/has a fabulous collection of movie wardrobe...i was truly impressed. I am sorry she does not have a permanent exhibit of it all somewhere in Hollywood.

    Her casino SUCKED..... but the exhibit was wonderful!

    In the article I was reading, Debbie Reynolds did say she had many other dresses that Marilyn had worn. Ms. Reynolds was a huge fan of Marilyn's. The money brought in from the auction was going to some charitable organization.

    From what i remember.... the exhibit said she had thousands of pieces. One of the other dresses i remember was the beaded dress that Barbra Streisand wore in Hello dolly.
