The silk Balmain negligee worn by Loren when attempting to seduce Sellers in the movie is also in the sale.<br />
<br />
Dressed to thrill - the stunning dress that led to Peter Sellers infatuation with screen goddess Sophia Loren is coming up for auction - but you may have to actually be a Miliionairess to afford it.<br />
<br />
Sophia Loren stripped off the salmon pink Balmain gown in a racy scene from the 1960 blockbuster 'The Millionairess' and unlikely leading man Peter Sellers was so entranced by the beautiful young italian star that he offered to leave his new wife for her.<br />

Dukes auctioneers in Dorchester are now selling the dress along with two others from the film and haute couture expert Antoinette Rogers says it could go for up to £10,000 thanks to its unique and glamorous provenance.
