Giphy

Been working on this for a while for Gr8erDays, my nostalgia site — a small series of videos in which I ask people 18-29 to tell me what (if anything) they know about various icons from the past, including some icons who are alive and well and working today!

If you wanna try these names out on your own millennial friends — or yourself! — here are the lists:

Video #1: Gone with the Wind, James Dean, Diana Ross, Elvis Presley, Elizabeth Taylor, Saturday Night Fever, Barbra Streisand, Marilyn Monroe

Video #2: Cher, George Michael, Dolly Parton, Frank Sinatra, Whitney Houston, Bette Midler, John Lennon, Madonna

Marilyn Monroe's lovely Brentwood, California, home — which she only owned a few months before dying in her bedroom there — is on the market for $6.9 million.

I am currently seeking sugar daddies old enough to think a 48-year-old is a sugar baby material who would like to put me up here. Promise to blow up your skirt daily.

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Monroe's most iconic movie outfits, many other personal garments, knick-knacks, magazines, incredible autographs and unpublished photos and even her 1962 address book, complete with contact info for Avedon, Henry Fonda, Monty Clift and many others I wish were alive to take the call.

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.
