Marilyn Monroe’s famous white dress from The Seven Year Itch sold at a Beverly Hills auction this weekend for a whopping $5.6 million! That’s almost three times the $2 million it was expected to fetch, CNN reports. It was the first in a series of auctions of actress Debbie Reynolds’ massive Hollywood memorabilia collection, and Reynolds was in tears when the gavel sounded after 20 minutes of bidding drama. The identity of the buyer hasn't been revealed yet, although we do know that the mystery person bid over the phone. Tell us, what would you do with such an iconic dress?
