The power of Marilyn Monroe, y'all!

Decades after her untimely death, the actress' mystique continues to draw people in. It works so well, in fact, that some people are willing to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on a pair of rhinestone earrings that she once wore.

Rhinestone! NOT diamond! Not even a sapphire or ruby!

At a recent two-day auction of Hollywood memorabilia at Julien's Beverly Hills gallery, a pair of rhinestone drop earrings that Marilyn wore to the premiere of The Rose Tattoo in 1955 sold for a whopping $185,000 to a foreign collector.

Dayum!!! Those have got to be the most expensive rhinestones ever!

Other items that sold included a lighter once used by Humphrey Bogart that went for $19,200, and a Pontiac Firebird owned by David Hasselhoff that went for $152,600.

The car was still cheaper than the earrings! Cray!!!

Lance Armstrong Auctioned Off Sheryl Crow's EXPENSIVE Gift To Him!

We’re kind of surprised he held onto it for this long!

Lance Armstrong got a b-e-a-utiful 1970 Pontiac GTO in 2004 from his then-girlfriend Sheryl Crow, after winning his sixth Tour de France.

When things went sour after their 2005 engagement, the couple split, but Lance apparently kept the wheels!

It’s been long enough though, and the disgraced cyclist reportedly actioned off the pimped out ride back in November!

It isn’t clear how much the GTO sold for, but RKMCCA Collector Car Auctions said they were planning on the sale price to be somewhere between $60,000 and $80,000, but wouldn’t say exactly what it sold for.

So, it's like Sheryl is still giving Lance presents almost a decade later! Isn’t life funny like that?!

At least now there's finally a reason to wedge Kim Kardashian & Marilyn Monroe into the same sentence!!

According to a dude named William Castleberry, there's an old school sex tape floating around featuring a fierce three-way between Marilyn, President John F. Kennedy, and his beloved brother Robert F. Kennedy!

William, a former bodyguard and pro memorabilia collector, says his 8mm copy is the only one in existence! Of course, he's never let anyone else lay eyes on it, and he expects everyone to take him at his word!

Castleberry sounds like a trustworthy surname, but The Seven Year Itch seductress getting double-stuffed like an Oreo cookie isn't a rumor we take lightly!!!

Cleaning out her closet!

Victoria Beckham is no doubt saving most of her stuff for Harper, but she's still found some stuff to give away for an upcoming auction!

She and David have donated a pair of thigh-high leather Gucci boots and a suit jacket to Chiswick Auctions in west London to be auctioned off on February 18th.

But people really want to feel the boots up before bidding. The auction house posted on Facebook:

Cara Delevingne ditches New York Fashion Week to attend a charity dinner with her dad!

Nothing like dedicating your Monday to charity!!

Cara Delevingne continued her busy life in London last night by hitting up a Christie’s Auction charity dinner with her dad.

And even though we’re sad she hasn’t graced any runways at New York Fashion Week, she certainly didn’t let us down with her dinnertime style selection!

The British model rocked a sheer lace blouse, which she paired with black slacks and a gold-embellished Balmain jacket.

Then to keep up with her father’s towering height, Michelle Rodriguez’s potential lady wore VERY high Burberry Prorsum platform wedges!

Charity-chic!!

Are you one of the many millions of people who thinks justice was NOT served after the deadly shooting of Trayvon Martin?

Well, here's your chance to finally give his acquitted killer George Zimmerman a piece of your mind!

All you need is at least $110,100.000 in disposable income and an amateurish appreciation for art!

The much maligned Floridian is currently selling his first painting on eBay and even plans to hand deliver it to the winning bidder!

After so many gun-related run-ins with the law, why would George suddenly start selling art?

George says he "needed to put these visions onto the blank canvas as soon as possible."

Ch-ch-check out a close-up of the painting (below)!

Victoria Beckham's Wedding Crown Failed To Sell At Auction

victoria beckham crown doesnt sell

Weird.

Victoria and David Beckham have always been good at generating interest in their personal brands AND the brands of others, like H&M and Armani, but looks like nobody wants Victoria's wedding crown from 1999!

Hey, that's vintage!

The crown was expected to bring in $29,000 to $40,000, but the highest bid was only for $23,000, and so the item failed to sell.

Whomp.
