Gentlemen Prefer Blondes…or at least items owned by one of the most famous blondes in history.
Fans of silver screen legend, Marilyn Monroe, will have the opportunity to bid on over 1,200 of her personal items in two auctions. Included in these sales will be glamorous movie costumes, personal letters written by Monroe herself, and even her checkbook!
The first auction took place on the 27th of September in Beijing, China. The second sale will be in Los Angeles, California on the 17th and 19th of November. Some of the more famous items include a dress Monroe wore in the comedy Some Like It Hot, the shoes she wore in her wedding to playwright Arthur Miller, and a negligee worn in the suspense thriller Niagara. One of the most unusual items for sale is a tube of Revlon non-smear lipstick.
Approximately 800 of the items come from acting coach Lee Strasberg who was a personal friend of Monroe. Other items come from memorabilia collector David Gainsborough-Roberts. This is an amazing opportunity for any Marilyn Monroe enthusiast to own a piece of this Hollywood icon’s personal mementos!
