See The World’s Most Expensive Dress $4.8m

Marilyn Monroe’s ‘Happy birthday, Mr President’ dress sells for just $4.8m.

The iconic dress worn by Marilyn Monroe when she sang “happy birthday Mr President” to John F Kennedy in May 1962, has sold for a world-record price of $4.8m, at auction.

The sheer, flesh-coloured design, which features more than 2,500 hand-stitched crystals, had a pre-sale estimate of $3m before it went under the hammer at Julien’s Auctions in Los Angeles.

It was bought by museum chain Ripley’s Believe It Or Not, surpassing the previous most expensive dress sold at auction – Monroe’s white costume from The Seven Year Itch – which went for $4.6m in 2011.

Edward Meyer, vice-president of Ripley’s Believe It Or Not, said:

“We believe this is the most iconic piece of pop culture that there is. In the 20th century, I cannot think of one single item that tells the story of the 1960s as well as this dress.”
