The big auction of Debbie Reynolds’ prized costume collection was yesterday, and my, my my – the prices were astounding. Marilyn Monroe’s iconic white subway grate halter dress from The Seven Year Itch went for $4.6M. Add the $1M auction commission the buyer must pay, that’s a whopping $5.6M. For a dress! But it’s not just a dress, as we all know. It’s a costume, and it’s a piece of Hollywood history. Congrats to Debbie Reynolds on the success of her auction. Indiewire has a nice article summing it up – read it HERE. Looks like there’s no official tally of auction prices, but I will post them as soon as I see them. Have a great week, everyone!
