Marilyn Monroe’s Iconic Seven Year Itch Dress Up For Sale

The white halter dress that blew over Marilyn Monroe‘s head in The Seven Year Itch is being offered for sale by none other than actress Debbie Reynolds. The dress is part of an extensive collection of Hollywood memorabilia, which Reynolds originally intended to turn into a museum. But after numerous false starts, the museum dream fell through, and now the 79-year-old is selling off her treasures in a Beverly Hills auction on June 18.

“Basically, what Debbie has is what’s left of Hollywood,” Profiles in History auction house president Joe Maddalena tells the New York Post.

The pending sale of Monroe’s famous white dress has moved a number of Hollywood history enthusiasts to start a campaign to rescue the garment from a life of obscurity in a private collection. The SAVE-THE-DRESS Project is attempting to raise funds to acquire the dress so that it can be placed on permanent, public display.
