Marilyn Monroe’s mink stole to be auctioned

Los Angeles, Sep 28 (IANS) Late actress Marilyn Monroe’s mink stole, which she wore in 1949 musical comedy film “Love Happy”, is to be auctioned. The bidding starts at $20,000.

The fashion accessory will be auctioned by Nate D Sanders Auctions here, reports

Monroe — who passed away at the age of 36 in 1962 from a barbiturate overdose in Los Angeles — was one of the biggest sex symbols of the 1950s, and her walk-on role in “Love Happy” came before her big breakthrough.

In the film, she was seen holding the mink stole as she walked past Groucho Marx in a cleavage-baring dress with the intention of catching his attention.

The mink stole was made by Western Costume Company, and is light brown in colour with a brown-grey satin lining and black trim. It is 76 inches in length, with its widest point being 15 inches, and its narrowest point 9 inches.

The auction for the mink stole opens on Thursday.
