Love For Sale: The Ultimate Marilyn Monroe Auction Comments (0)

246010_0Who's that girl?! (Image via Julien's Auctions)

This auction of Marilyn Monroe artifacts from the collection of David Gainsborough-Roberts, the estate of Lee Strasberg and Deja vu will make you wish you were rich so you could buy, well, all of it.

Screen Shot 2016-11-06 at 12.41.58 PMJust seeing MM's costumes in this disembodied way is startling—like the lines police draw around dead bodies.

The items consist of some of Monroe's most iconic movie outfits, many other personal garments, knick-knacks, magazines, incredible autographs and unpublished photos and even her 1962 address book, complete with contact info for Avedon, Henry Fonda, Monty Clift and many others I wish were alive to take the call.

245907_0Ephemera, a handwritten list of approved directors & MM with her dog Maf (for Mafia) and superfan James Haspiel

Some of the items are morbid, like prescription pill bottles.

Some of the items are maybe too personal, like used panty hose.

Some of the items are so intimate, it's hard to believe one wouldn't feel closer to the icon by owning them, including family photos and the pic at the top of this post, a private snap showing Monroe in her going-out-in-public brunette disguise.

245235_0Lookin' for nuggets? This one is 24K, as far as nuggets go.

But of course the ultimate prize is the nude gown she wore to wholesomely wish President Kennedy a happy birthday in 1962—that one is expected to fetch, no exaggeration, millions.

245068_0I dunno how to marry a millionaire, but these rocks are why to!

Check it out here. The auction kicks off November 17 at 6 p.m. PT.

Win Madonna's autographed shoes, girl!

(Or items featuring Bryan Lourd, Stevie Nicks, Dustin Lance Black, Taylor Swift, Andy Cohen, Anderson Cooper, Cyndi Lauper, George Clooney, Demi Lovato and/or Cher.)

It's all for a good cause—the National Park Foundation, which recently embraced the Stonewall National Monument and needs funds to maintain it.
