Your Morning Fashion & Beauty Report: Marilyn Monroe's dress, Duckie for dames, Andy Roddick apparel

June 2, 2011 |  9:00 am

The "subway dress" worn by Marilyn Monroe (whose 85th birthday would have been June 1) in "The Seven Year Itch," is expected to fetch between $1 million and $2 million at a June 18 auction of Debbie Reynold's extensive collection of Hollywood costumes. [All the Rage] 

Duckie Brown, the 10-year-old menswear line designed by Steven Cox and Daniel Silver, is launching a women's collection this fall, and according to fashion-industry trade paper WWD, the 17-piece collection, to be called Mrs. Brown, is anchored in knitwear and "puts the spotlight on a girl's cool inner tomboy." Sounds just Duckie to us. [WWD, subscription required]

With a blog, a new cookbook, the occasional "Glee" appearance, a Grammy performance (that included Muppets!) and her grinning visage plastered on the cover of this month's Bon Appétit, it's difficult to imagine any corner of the universe left untouched by the stylish Gwyneth Paltrow. And it just got a little bit more difficult -- our compatriots over at the Ministry of Gossip warn us that the Lady G is all up in the Twitterverse now. So far, the day-old @GwynethPaltrow has but two tweets -- and one of those mentions Coldplay. We just hope she'll answer us when we ask #whatareyouwearing? or #arethoseManolos?

Professional tennis player Andy Roddick plans to launch a signature collection of performance apparel in collaboration with French label Lacoste, a brand he's been endorsing for the last six years. Consisting of polos, jackets, tennis shorts, track pants and track jackets ranging in price from $85 to $185, the collection is slated to be available at on July 1 and sold in brick-and-mortar Lacoste boutiques worldwide. And don't shed any crocodile tears for the Lacoste logo -- it's staying put. Roddick's logo -- which, according to WWD, involves both his scripted signature and a silhouette of the tennis star midserve -- appears on the lower right hem of jackets and polo shirts.
