Prev Next

This dress was worn by Marilyn Monroe in 1953 in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. The most significant scenes of the movie were shot in this dress by Marilyn and it was claimed by many to have been one of the most important film costumes to have been auctioned as we saw many imitations of it, e.g. Madonna in ‘Material Girl’. The dress was auctioned on 11 June 2010, with an estimated price of between $150,000 and $250,000  and sold for $310,000.
