View Madonna's Material Possessions in Person-- And Bid on This Gown!

Everett Collection

This could be your best excuse for booking a last-minute trip to London: A massive private collection of Madonna’s most famous and infamous costumes goes on display for the very first time starting Saturday. From the black and gold-coned “Open Your Heart” bustier to the wedding gown she wore on the “Like a Virgin” tour to the baseball uniform she wore in A League of Their Own, more than 300 of the Material Girl’s dresses, costumes, artifacts and personal items will be up for viewing at the Old Truman Brewery through March 22. The unforgettable pink gown (and gloves) that she wore in her “Material Girl” video could even be yours! The owners will be auctioning the dress off to one lucky — and probably very rich — bidder after the exhibit ends. Tickets to the exhibit, entitled “Simply Madonna: The Materials of the Girl,” are available through ticketmaster or preview the collection at

Boo. Why can’t they exhibit them here in the NYC? By the way…who takes time to write “not interested” on something they are “not interested” in?

Amna on

I believe they are looking to tour the event around the world

Why would she want to part with all of these things? Maybe her children would want them after she dies. I can’t believe she’d just get rid of all this stuff!

alexis on

for the person who said keep the stuff for her kids-i get where your coming from. but she has to young boys who probably don’t want her bustiers and dresses, and she probably asked lourdes (lola)if she wanted any of it first. Lola wants her wedding dress which she’s made public. this are just career stuff. she’d keep her personal,private stuff for her children i would say.

angie on

i think shes crazy, and should keep all her crap.
i personally think that her music is going down hill, and that she should just quit :)
(ps. im sure the husbands GLAD to leave!)

I never leave comments, but Amy, you are right on about “not interested.” From, So interested….
