The black dress that a distraught Marilyn Monroe wore to a 1954 press conference announcing her separation from baseball legend Joe DiMaggio is going up for auction.
Bidding for the wool dress with a zippered turtleneck front begins March 30. The auction house expects the dress will fetch up to 150 thousand dollars. The seller’s name is not being made public. Monroe and DiMaggio married in 1954 and the divorce became final the following year.
