Someone out there clearly has a case of Blonde Ambition. Two of the iconic Jean Paul Gaultier cone bras that Madonna wore on her Blonde Ambition tour in 1990 have been sold through Christie’s auction house in London for £48,000, or about $77,000 at current exchange.
It turns out that whether they’re in Vogue Paris or in a hotel ballroom in Austin, TX, little girls wearing too much makeup and grown-up clothes are just plain inappropriate. And what makes it worse? Their parents are the one who got them these gigs in the first place. Case in point – this video from the most recent episode of Toddlers and Tiaras, in which a toddler named Mia struts around in a cone bra not even Madonna could manage.
Shockingly, despite his infamous 90′s cone-bra creation, designer Jean Paul Gaultier has never before designed lingerie. Now, much to the delight of underwear aficionados and Madonna fans alike, Gaultier has finally teamed up with luxury lingerie brand La Perla for a full line of of his own.
Now, as people become more comfortable talking about their beauty secrets and as wearing lingerie out to dinner becomes more popular, companies like Spanx are creating sexier, more wearable lines that allow you to get shaped without having to wear that horrific tan granny panty. There’s lace, there’s silk detailing, and there’s hope for your next date.
