The iconic subway grate dress Marilyn Monroe wore in “The Seven Year Itch,” which the actress said she bought for $200, sold for $4.6 million, according to Reuters. Other items that sold for way over their expected price include a dress and a pair of ruby slippers Judy Garland wore in a “Wizard of Oz” screen test ($1.75 million), another Monroe dress from “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes” ($1.2 million) and the Ascot dress Audrey Hepburn donned in “My Fair Lady” ($3.7 million).
More of Reynolds’s iconic pieces will be sold at another auction this December. See photos of the $4 million dress and other items from the auction after the jump.
