On January 14, 1954 the iconic movie star Marilyn Monroe wed the Yankees superstar athlete Joe DiMaggio. This was the most important wedding in Pop Culture history. Never before has there been a wedding of this stature of two iconic figures that were the leaders in their fields. This iconic moment was captured in hundreds of photographs and video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NZd7dD-HOyE. Gotta Have Rock and Roll is proud to auction the two-piece suit Marilyn Monroe wore at this historic wedding.

Marilyn’s wedding suit is a two-piece dark brown serge wedding suit, with a white fur collar on the jacket. The measurements are as follows: Jacket: shoulder to cuff 20”, shoulder to waist 19”. Skirt: waist measures 27”, waist to hem 25” The jacket has been shortened from the original length by a few inches, the bottom of the jacket has been folded and hemmed.
