Madonna's conical bra to fetch £15k

Los Angeles - Madonna's famous conical corset bra is expected to fetch £15 000 at auction on Thursday.

The Jean Paul Gaultier-designed green silk bustier with conical cups - which the Girl Gone Wild hitmaker wore on her 1990 Blond Ambition tour - is going under the hammer at Christie's auction house in South Kensington, south west London.

The now 54-year-old singer donned the garment - which also features peppermint bugle beads, with clustered sequins and beads at cups and hip line - during her performance of Hanky Panky and Now I'm Following You at the Olympic Stadium in Barcelona on 1 August 1990.

A black Lycra two-piece, which she wore while performing her 1990 hit Vogue in the stadium, is expected to go for up to £12 000 in the sale of pop culture items.

The stage costume is made up of a black satin bustier costume with top-stitched conical cups complete with a black custom-made all in one suit, and Lycra shorts stitched to a mesh bodice.

A big fan of the garment

A number of Marilyn Monroe prints are also going under the hammer in the sale including a silver print worth up to £2 500 and a 1955 calendar featuring a colour reproduction of a nude portrait of Marilyn by Tom Kelley, which is expected to fetch up to £1 200.

One Madonna fan who might like to bid for Madonna's iconic Blond Ambition tour costume is British model Daisy Lowe, who is a big fan of the garment and used to attempt to copy the singer's look when she was younger.

She said: "My biggest fashion obsession is Jean Paul Gaultier. I remember first seeing Madonna's conical bra, when I was about 12, and grabbing party hats to copy it. His clothes are so feminine and powerful."
