A collection of 36 photographs of the late Hollywood actress Marilyn Monroe, which were taken in 1962, was sold at auction house Christie's here for 97,000 pounds.

The images, shot by Bert Stern for American Vogue magazine, are believed to have been the last professional photographs of the star and, following her death later that year, ran in the magazine as a memorial as opposed to the original feature planned, reports

The series purchased by an anonymous bidder is part of over 100 iconic images of Monroe going under the hammer as part of a pre-Christmas photographic sale at the house.
