In this world, there's only one Mary Poppins carpet bag, as carried by Julie Andrews on the silver screen. There's also only one pink gown that Marilyn Monroe wore while singing "Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friends" in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. These, along with other iconic pieces of movie fashion history, will be auctioned off this June at the Profiles in History Hollywood Memorabilia Auction.

Other lots include: Johnny Depp's scissor hands from Edward Scissorhands, Daniel Boone's coonskin cap, Hero Colonal Warrior's helmet from Battlestar Galactica, and the original genie bottle from I Dream of Jeanie.
