The iconic white dress that Marilyn Monroe wore in The Seven-Year Itch – the one that suggestively blows above her knees as she’s standing over a subway grating – has been sold for $5.6 million in a California auction, according to CNN. The auction was part of a series that will sell various items from actress Debbie Reynolds’ collection of film memorabilia. (Technically, the dress sold for a bid of $4.6 million, with an extra $1 million going to the auction company as commission.) In the same auction, Monroe’s showgirl outfit from Gentlemen Prefer Blondes sold for $1.47 million, and her costumes from River of No Return and There’s No Business Like Show Business sold for a combined $1.2 million.
