Marilyn Monroe’s ‘Happy Birthday’ Sets New Record.

The dress Marilyn Monroe wore to sing “Happy Birthday” to President John F. Kennedy has sold for $4.8 million, breaking its own record as the most expensive personal item of clothing.  The dress was purchased by the Ripley’s Believe it or Not museum chain at Julien’s Auctions’ “The Collections of Marilyn Monroe” sale in Los Angeles.

Now, originally the dress sold for $1.27 million at a Christie’s auction back in 1999, setting a new record for the most expensive personal item of clothing ever to be sold but this auction just beat out the last record.

That is some crazy dough to drop for a dress. See the dress and the famous performance below…
