Lady Gaga set a new world record purchasing an Alexander McQueen dress for $133,075 at last night’s much buzzed about Daphne Guinness wardrobe auction. This is the highest price ever paid for a McQueen dress at auction.
The record setting dress in question is an ivory silk tulle empire waist gown from the 2008-2009 Alexander McQueen collection. According to WWD, Lady Gaga did not actually attend the auction, but bid via phone for the dress. We can’t wait to see if Gaga actually wears this dress out on the town.
Other records were broken at the auction including the highest price paid for a Mario Testino photo ($208,003) and highest price paid for a Christian Lacroix jacket ($25,366).
With all of these record breaking sales, the auction raised $744,285 for The Isabella Blow Foundation. That is four times what they were hoping to raise in the event.
