A bustier worn on stage by Whitney Houston fetched $18,750 at an auction on Saturday in Beverly Hills of memorabilia from the late pop star's career.

The sale of 13 items brought in a total of $80,187 from bidders in the gallery, on the phone and online.

A grey velvet gown the singer wore to music mogul Clive Davis' pre-Grammy party in 1996 went for $11,250.

Pearl drop earrings worn by Houston in "The Bodyguard" sold for $2,812, while a vest she sported in the film commanded $3,437.

Other items included a plum velvet dress, which brought $7,500, and a black and gold pants outfit that fetched $2,125.

Most of the items sold on Saturday as part of the Hollywood Legends series were provided by the Grammy winner's friends and family in the weeks since she died.

More items, including some 30 dresses worn by Houston, will be auctioned off in June as part of The Music Icons series.
