Madonna Bustier From 1987 Tour Sold for $72,000
Of course she’d make a killing at an auction. She is the Material Girl, after all.
Madonna memorabilia raked in the cash at the Legends Auction in Beijing, China, Drowned Madonna reports. While a slew of Madonna goods were sold — including a signed copy of her ‘Sex’ book for $3,200, various signed photos from $200 to over $400, and a recording of Madonna singing ‘Simon Says’ with her band for over $1,200 — the biggest moneymaker was an undergarment.
A Jean Paul Gaultier bustier that Madge donned on her ‘Who’s That Girl?’ tour in 1987 brought home the most moolah, earning a whopping $72,000! The estimated value of the bustier was set at $6,000 to $8,000.
Julien’s Legends hosted the auction, which also featured items from Elvis Presley, Michael Jackson, Marilyn Monroe and Princess Diana.
It looks like she’s outdone herself yet again! This isn’t the first time someone’s paid a pretty penny for one of Madonna’s underpinnings. PEOPLE reports that in 2001, Madge set a sales record when one of her bras from her ‘The Girlie Tour’ earned $23,850 — and was estimated to be worth between $7,000 to $9,000.
If she’s single again, Julien’s may want to forward the winning bidder’s contact information to the pop icon, who once sang, “The boy with the cold hard cash is always Mr. Right.” This guy may well be her soul mate.
