Lady Gaga Bids For Alexandra McQueen Auction

Lady Gaga outbids rivals by spending a record-breaking $136,400

Details

Lady Gaga was reportedly paid the highest ever price for an Alexander Mcqueen creation at a charity auction.

Daphne Guinness, a socialite and a style icon put a huge collection of her haute couture wardrobe under the hammer at Christies in London, including few items by the late designer.

Lady Gaga, who was a massive fan of the Guinness’ work, gave the auction a boost by outbidding rivals to buy a dress, eventually spending a record-breaking $136,400 via her phone-bids.

The singer is now the new owner of a 2008 ivory silk gown, which was entitled “The Girl Who Lived In The Tree”, according to Britains Associated Press.

Guinness says, Im overwhelmed by how many bidders took part and Im particularly moved by Lady Gagas support for the foundation. I like her very much, and its lovely to see the nascent beginnings of something that may help other people.

This auction raised $747,200 for the Isabella Blow Foundation, set up in memory of the late fashion guru.
