We were invited to Ripley’s Believe it or Not! Orlando to check out the World’s Most Expensive Dress – the Marilyn Monroe “Happy Birthday Mr. President” dress that cost Ripley’s 5 million dollars! Designed by a 22 year-old Bob Mackie, there are 6000 beads stitched into the dress that was worn on May 19th, 1962 for the 45th birthday of President Kennedy. Here is a look at the dress and a few other display items!
Ripley’s Believe it or Not! is a fun walk-through, and not far from the Orlando Eye at I-Drive 360.
The dress is here for a limited time, through at least the end of the year. Ripley’s doesn’t say where the dress will go next or when.
Here is our video of the display, and then check out the rest of our photos!
