(CBS/AP) Images and copyrights from Marilyn Monroe's first photo shoot sold for $352,000 at an auction that included items from Lady Gaga and John Lennon.

Pictures: Marilyn Monroe

The photos, taken in 1946 when she was still Norma Jeane Dougherty, were the highlight of the Beverly Hills auction known as "Icons & Idols," Julien's Auctions spokeswoman Caroline Galloway tells The Associated Press.

The photos come with negatives and the rare right to sell and distribute them. A judge in September ruled they must be auctioned to settle debts of photographer Joseph Jasgur.

A Lady Gaga dress sold for $31,250, and the prop gun used in her video for "Born This way" went for $7,680.

A 1969 caricature John Lennon drew of himself and Yoko Ono went for $90,000.
