Madonna’s conical corsets sell for £48,000

Two of Madonna’s conical bra stage costumes sold for just over £48,000 at a London auction.
The star’s outfits were among more than 150 items that went under the hammer during the pop culture sale at Christie’s auction house in South Kensington on Thursday.
Designed by Jean Paul Gaultier, the green and white couture corset with conical bra cups, beaded fringing and striped sequined embroidery became one of Madonna’s most famous outfits when she slid off a black gown and revealed it on her 1990 Blond Ambition tour in Barcelona’s Olympic Stadium after performing Sooner or Later.
Valued between £10,000 and £15,000, it sold for £32,450 to the same private bidder who then snapped up another costume worn by the singer on the same night as she sang Vogue.
The two-piece outfit, comprising a black satin bustier with top-stitched conical cups, which was worn underneath a black all-in-one suit with lycra shorts, stitched to a mesh bodice, fetched £16,250.
