The iconic white dress worn by Marilyn Monroe in the film The Seven Year Itch has just been sold for a staggering $4.6 million.

The dress, featured in the famous wind blowing scene in the 1955 classic, was owned by fellow actress Debbie Reynolds and sold during an auction of her Hollywood memorabilia in Los Angeles on Saturday.

It was part of a vast collection of over 3,500 pieces amassed over a 40 year period and was acquired in 1971 when she bought all of Marilyn's wardrobe after it was sold by 20th Century Fox studio.

Reynolds had attempted to off-load the collection to a museum but could not find somewhere to take it in its entirety.

Other items sold included a dress and a pair of ruby slippers worn by Judy Garland during a screen test for the Wizard Of Oz.  The auction netted an impressive $1.75 million.

Nowhere near what Marilyn's dress sold for, but Charlie Chaplin's bowler hat sold for $135,000.
