Madonna Jacket Fetches $252,000 At Auction
The jacket Madonna wore in Desperately Seeking Susan sold for $252,000 at a celebrity auction over the weekend.
A trove of dresses and costumes worn by the pop icon onstage, in videos, on red carpets and in private were sold at Julien's Auctions in Beverly Hills in what was billed as "the largest collection of Madonna memorabilia from her personal and professional life ever to be offered at auction".
The jacket was the top item at the annual Icons and Idols event, followed by the dress she wore when she wed actor Sean Penn in 1985, which sold for $81,000.
