hollywoodnews.com: The ivory pleated halter dress worn by Marilyn Monroe in the 1955 film “The Seven Year Itch” was sold for $4.2M at auction on Saturday. The garment was sold alongside a number of other pieces that were part of singer/actress Debbie Reynolds’ personal collection of movie memorabilia.

Dubbed “the subway dress”, the white frock became famous when, as part of the scene, Monroe’s nameless character (“The Girl”) lowered her hands to maintain a modicum of modesty when a rush of air blows her dress upward through a subway vent.

Also auctioned off was the red-sequined showgirl gown and a feathered hat Monroe wore in “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes” ($1.47M), Monroe’s costumes from “There’s No Business Like Show Business” and “River of No Return” ($1.2M), said CNN. The previous record price for a Monroe dress was $1.26 million paid in 1999 for the dress the actress wore when she sang President John F. Kennedy the birthday song in 1962.
