OMG! Marilyn Monroe’s Famous Pink Gown Up For Auction

27May10

OMG! Although she’s been gone for over 40 years, the price Marilyn Monroe collectibles still attest to power of her legend. The infamous pink satin gown she wore in the Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend sequence in “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes” is up for sale as part of the Profiles in History’s auction on June 10-12, 2010.

The gown was worn by Marilyn as the gold-digging Lorelei Lee in the scene which was later copied by Madonna for her “Material Girl” video. The dress by designer William Travilla is estimated at $150,000-$250,000 but could go higher. The famous beaded gown she wore to sing Happy Birthday for John F. Kennedy went for $1,267,500 at auction at Christie’s in 1999.

If I only had the money…..
