marilyn-monroe-seven-year-iONE of the sexiest dresses ever to grace the silver screen – worn by MARILYN MONROE in The Seven Year Itch - has been sold for a record fee.


The ivory pleated dress which blew up shockingly revealing Monroe's pants in Billy Wilder's 1955 classic was sold to an anonymous bidder for £2.65 million ($4.3 million).


The Marilyn Monroe classic was the premier lot at the auction of actress Debbie Reynolds' film memorabilia in Los Angeles.


Monroe's red sequined dress and feathered headdress from 1953's Gentleman Prefer Blondes also went for £803,000 ($1.3 million) in the sale.


A pair of red slippers designed for JUDY GARLAND but never actually worn by the star in the Wizard of Oz sold for £989,000 ($1.6 million) and Charlie Chaplain's bowler hat from The Little Tramp fetched £84,000 ($135,300).
