three dresses designed by William Travilla
THE dress, designed by William Travilla, Marilyn Monroe's pleated 'subway' dress (from Billy Wilder's 1955 movie The Seven Year Itch) that sold recently for 4.6million (US) flanked by the red sequined dress (from Gentlemen Prefer Blondes) that sold for 1.2million (US) with another dress that was apparently leant to Marilyn in the foreground.
Amazing in this world today what people are willing to spend that kind of money on!!! Great post for the W Day! Enjoy!
love the insights.
A timeless design. But 4.6 million!
I didn't know it was that long. ;)
If I had that much money, I wouldn't spend it on a dress. What a waste of dollars.
I just read about that MM dress. Iconic.
But I wouldn't buy it, even if I could afford it.

Hmmmm. I wonder what life must be like to have so much money I could spend that much on a dress.
What a beautiful dress... hardly worth that much money, me thinks.
Well dresses go for a lot less in our second hand stores:-) They look lovely material, wonder who bought them.
They don't make them like that anymore!! Gorgeous, but HOW MUCH!!!
Had to laugh at Roger's comment. Can you imagine him in that dress?
Gorgeous, gorgeous dresses. I used to dream of being able to wear such wonderful clothes. Not buy them, just to have the figure to wear them. LOL

The dresses are classic and gorgeous, yet I feel that spending those amounts of money on them is a bit obscene.
That dress is iconic! I can still picture it and that shot of Marilyn on the subway grate. Too much money to pay but a definite piece of history.
Those dresses are surely beautiful but I wouldn't buy one if I had the money. ;) Excellent post!
Lovely dress, but what a weird way to spend money!
Wow...I would have wanted to take a picture of that dress too
Would love you to peek at my ABC. You are welcome to come by anytime, have a nice day!
I guess not everyone is feeling the pinch of a slow economy... yikes! $4M+ for a used dress!
