Lady Gaga Splashes Out $133K for McQueen Dress
She’s never been one to deny herself fabulous fashion, and Lady Gaga plunked down a huge chunk of change for an Alexander McQueen dress at auction.
According to a report, the “Born This Way” songstress purchased the garment from Christie’s South Kensington as part of the Daphne Guinness wardrobe.
Gaga phoned in her record-setting bid of $133,075 for the dress, part of McQueen’s “The Girl Who Lived in the Tree” collection Autumn/Winter 2008/09.
All proceeds from the 102-lot sale went to benefit the Isabella Blow Foundation, which was started by Ms. Guinness to help aspiring fashion designers who deal with mental illness.
She explained, “This auction was the culmination of a plan, the completion of a circle. I wanted to celebrate Isabella — she was one of the most interesting funny people I have ever known. And I feel so great that all of these things will go on to have lives with other people. There has to be a certain flow to life — you can’t hang on to things. The sale was so freeing.”
