Kate's sheer dress bags spot on world's most expensive auctioned clothes list

1. Marilyn Monroe's The Seven Year Itch Dress

Beating all dress auction records when it was sold in 2011 was Marilyn Monroe’s Seven Year Itch or 'subway' dress. Possibly the most famous outfit in film history, it was worn in the 1955 film and cemented the actress' status as a Hollywood sex symbol. Debbie Reynolds, who bought the dress for $200, cried as it was auctioned off at a staggering $4.6 million during the auction of her huge amount of celebrity costumes and artefacts in 2011.
