The Marilyn Monroe glamorous harem costume went under the hammer at Christie’s, South Kensington London December 16.   But did not sell.

Christie’s confirmed not a buyer for the iconic outfit tipped to fetch about half a million pounds.

The costume worn by the Hollywood legend when Marilyn posed for the renowned photographer Richard Avedon for Life magazine in 1958.

Marilyn Monroe used the picture when she tried to get the part of the Egyptian queen in the 1963 film sending it to the boss of Fox Studios, but she lost the role to her great rival Elizabeth Taylor.

It is one of more than 100 lots offered for auction at Christie’s pop culture sale in South Kensington, central London, on December 16th.

Also going under the hammer was a black leather motorcycle jacket worn by Arnold Schwarzenegger in Terminator 2: Judgement Day. The jacket is valued at over £18,000. A Gretsch guitar made for U2 frontman Bono and signed by all four members of the band is valued at £120,000. These items did not find a buyer
