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.
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of Monroe's most iconic movie outfits, many other personal garments, knick-knacks, magazines, incredible autographs and unpublished photos and even her 1962 address book, complete with contact info for Avedon, Henry Fonda, Monty Clift and many others I wish were alive to take the call.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.
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.
Check it out here. The auction kicks off November 17 at 6 p.m. PT.
