An iconic red dress worn by screen siren Marilyn Monroe at the height of her career has emerged for sale with a staggering 360,000 pounds price tag.<br />
<br />
The Hollywood legend wore the sexy saloon gown as she performed a sultry number as bar singer Kay Weston in the 1954 film River of No Return.<br />
<br />
She sizzled with sex appeal as she sang One Silver Dollar to drinkers in the bar in one of the opening scenes of the film, set in the goldrush era.<br />
<br />
American actress Debbie Reynolds, a contemporary of Monroe's, bought the dress at a sell-off of costumes by film studio 20th Century Fox in 1971.<br />
<br />
Miss Reynolds sold it in 2000 to a private collector and it has been in their hands ever since.<br />
<br />
Experts have tipped it to fetch 600,000 dollars - around 360,000 pounds - when it goes under the hammer at Bonhams auction house.
