Julien’s Auctions, the world record breaking auction house to the stars, has announced World’s largest Marilyn Monroe collection of personal and career items ever offered in one auction event. Highly-anticipated three day Marilyn Monroe auction event includes the Marilyn Monroe Property From The Collection of David Gainsborough-Roberts curated collection of Marilyn Monroe film worn costumes, personal wardrobe, jewelry and personal items; Marilyn Monroe Property From The Estate of Lee Strasberg consisting of documents and personal items once owned by Marilyn Monroe; and Déjà vu Property From The Life and Career of Marilyn Monroe including personal items originally sold at Christie’s 1999 and Julien’s Auctions’ 2005 Property From The Estate of Marilyn Monroe auctions.
Highlights of the exhibit will include the most famous of all gowns ever worn by Marilyn Monroe, the “Happy Birthday Mr. President” JFK gown she wore in 1962 at Madison Square Garden during the celebration of John F. Kennedy’s birthday. This moment has gone down as one of the most famous and talked about in both presidential and Marilyn Monroe folklore. Collections from David Gainsborough-Roberts, Frieda Hull and the Estate of Lee Strasberg will also be included in the hundreds of items to be displayed at the media event.
You can also join Julien’s at the live auction on November 17th, 18th and 19th, 2016 in Los Angeles, California in what will be the most talked about auction for many decades to come.
