A rare and important Marilyn Monroe dress to go under the hammer at Julien's Auctions
The collection offers hundreds of items from Hollywood's most important stars including leading ladies and men from the Golden Era to today's Oscar winning roles.

BEVERLY HILLS, CA.- Julien’s Auctions announced their highly anticipated Hollywood Legends Auction to be held at the Julien's Auctions Beverly Hills gallery on June 26 and June 27, 2015. The collection offers hundreds of items from Hollywood's most important stars including leading ladies and men from the Golden Era to today's Oscar winning roles.

Julien’s Auctions will offer a very significant dress worn by screen icon Marilyn Monroe from her final film “Something’s Got to Give” (20th C. 1962). The figure hugging silk crepe dress is printed with scattered painterly roses in shades of persimmon and deep cherry with a plunging V back. The interior of the studio constructed dress has hand finished details, is lined with ivory soufflé and has boning to the waistline. Jean Louis was the costume designer on the film. Monroe wore this dress when her character, who was proclaimed dead and returns from being stranded on an island for five years, is introduced in the film and reunited with her children who do not realize she is their mother. Monroe was fired from the film and when the studio tried to replace her with Lee Remick, the film’s leading man Dean Martin refused to finish the film without Monroe. Her untimely death came less than a month after being let go from the production. The dress can be seen in numerous newspaper articles announcing her death (Estimate: $400,000-$600,000).
