Marilyn's `Happy Birthday' gown going to auction in the fall

Posted:

NEW YORK (AP) -- This is a dress a lot of Marilyn Monroe fans might want.

The flesh-colored, skin-tight beaded gown she wore during her breathless rendition of "Happy Birthday" to President John F. Kennedy is going on the auction block this fall.

Julien's Auctions believes the gown could fetch $2 million to $3 million when it's up for sale in Los Angeles on Nov. 17.

The gown is made of silk gauze and is covered in thousands of rhinestone beads and sequins.
