"The suit Marilyn Monroe wore when she married Joe Dimaggio will go on the auction block next month at Sotheby's in New York.
The brown wool suit with a white mink collar and rhinestone buttons is expected to fetch between $15,000 and $20,000 at the Sept. 30 sale. Monore married Dimaggio on Jan. 14, 1954.
Rival auction house Christie's is selling more than 1,000 Monroe items at a mega-Marilyn auction on Oct. 27-28, including the "eternity band" given to her by Dimaggio and the silk gown with 6,000 hand sewn beads she wore when she sang "Happy Birthday" to President Kennedy in 1962."
