Instead, Reynolds held three auctions between 2011 and 2014, where she sold off items, including Monroe's dress, which fetched $5.52m, and Audrey Hepburn's ascot dress from My Fair Lady, which sold for $4.44m.

It's been announced that the belongings of the late Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds will be sold at auction follow their sad deaths late past year.

Fisher died on 27 December 2016 after suffering a cardiac arrest.

Once the auction has been completed, the Fisher-Reynolds compound in Beverly Hills will be put on the housing market.
