BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — The dress Marilyn Monroe wore in “River of No Return” has sold to a private buyer for $504,000.


Darren Julien, president and CEO of Julien’s Auctions, said Saturday that the dress was sold at an auction in China. Monroe wore the green velour dress while she sang “I’m Gonna File My Claim” in the 1954 Western in which she portrayed Kay Washington, a gambler’s wife.


Among other items that have been sold at the auction were the bustier that Madonna wore during her “Who’s That Girl” tour in 1987. It has sold for $72,000.


The famous white dress Monroe wore in “The Seven Year Itch” was sold for $4.6 million at an auction this summer.
