The Most Famous Sex Symbol


The iconic dress that Marilyn Monroe wore in the 1955 film The Seven Year Itch currently holds the title of the most expensive dress ever sold at an auction. The dress sold for a staggering $4.6 million, not due to the fabric, designer or cut, but to the fact that it was worn by one of the most famous sex symbols of all time. Monroe converted to Judaism when she married Arthur Miller on June 29, 1956, and remained Jewish after their divorce.

The Munich Massacre
