The white dress Marilyn Monroe made famous in "The Seven Year Itch" has been auctioned off for $4.6 million.

Monroe stood over a subway grate in the iconic dress.

It was sold as a part of a collection of Hollywood history, gathered by singer and actress Debbie Reynolds.

Also auctioned off was the red dress Monroe wore in "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes". It sold for $1.2 million.
