Madonna's conical bra to fetch 15k at auction

Madonna's famous conical corset bra is expected to fetch £15,000 at auction today.
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 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 August 1, 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.

UPDATE: The bustier sold for £32,450 and the black two-piece sold for £16,250

I absolutely LOVE all of Madonna's stage costumes from the 'Blond Ambition Tour 90', Gaultier was at his creative peak (twin peaks!) & so was Madonna!! It's a shame that in Madonna's two recent concert tours she has chosen primarily black outfits- she can rock any colour & that's exactly what she did with her outfits from the 'Blond Ambition Tour', a technicolour dream! I do feel a little sorry for Mary Lambert/ Marlene Stewart because they were really the people that first got Madonna into wearing pointy bras (there debut was in the 'Open Your Heart' 87 video, & Madonna carried this exact look into the opening section of her 'Who's That Girl Tour 87')yet not much was said about the look at that time, whereas in 1990 Gaultier got enormous & entire credit for the whole conical bra look.


OMG! 15K, who is that lucky one?


blond ambition was my favorite madonna tour ever!

...whatever happened to the pink satin conical bustier she wore in the opening sequence? is that in the museum of rock n roll?
