Marilyn Monroe’s feather and silk purse auctioned for $25,428
Blonde bombshell Marilyn Monroe captivated the entire world not just with her beauty, but her personal style as well. On the 50th Anniversary of her untimely death, her red silk and feather-embellished leather purse was auctioned online for a whopping $25,428. The arm candy has the starlet’s initials ‘MM’ monogrammed in silver in the interior pocket. It also boasts of a double strap with a rhinestone encrusted shell clasp in silver metal. The bag belonged to the estates of Tommy Noonan, who was her co-star in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes and was first offered at auction in 1999, when Christie’s famously sold off most of the star’s personal wardrobe. Another item on sale which attracted a great deal of attention was her grand pink bathroom which she sported while filming The Prince and The Showgirl.
