Lady Gaga costumes to be auctioned off
Lady Gaga’s superfans can now get their hands on a piece of their idol’s vast wardrobe, as four unique items created especially for the popstar are set to be sold off at an auction.
Julien’s Auctions, the Beverley Hills-based auction house that specialises in entertainment memorabilia, are set to put the creations worn by Gaga under the hammer on December 1.
The priciest of the Gaga lot, which is part of the ‘Icons and Idols’ auction, is the 'Ecstasy' dress, designed by Istituto Marangoni-graduate Eddie Gavriilidis, the Telegraph reported.
With a starting price of $5,000, the gown is expected to sell for $10,000 to $12,000.
It even has a speck of the pop star’s blood on it from where she was accidentally cut on the arm by an overzealous fan whilst wearing it.
Other items include a clear rubber mask worn by the star in the Showstudio short film Manifesto of Little Monsters; a second mask formed of rusty nuts, bolts and washers created by Keko Hainswheeler and worn by Gaga in the video for Bad Romace, as well as an extravagant 20-inch-high headpiece that was commissioned for her Monster Ball tour.
Both the rubber mask and headpiece were designed by Franc Fernandez, the designer responsible for Gaga’s now-infamous meat dress.
