An anonymous Monroe-lover just dropped $4.6 million plus a $1 million commission fee on the dead star’s signature ivory dress that blew up tantalizingly in The Seven Year Itch… or, as it appeared in 1955, when the saucy starlet straddled a NYC subway grate in an “outrageous” public act of exhibitionism.

Even other collectors at the Profiles in History auctions in Beverly Hills admitted that the bid was “totally crazy, especially in this recession,” because buying x-rays of Monroe’s intimate skeletal orifices wasn’t.


Here’s a flirty refresher. If anyone besides Marilyn has ever found the air jetting out of an underground subway system to be “cool,” please raise your hand.
