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.

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