Kylie Minogue’s lingerie that she wore for during a photo-shoot for the 2012 Study Vox Foundation charity calendar sold for $8000 in an auction in London (UK).
A lingerie set once worn by Kylie Minogue has fetched STG5000 ($A7850) at an auction in London. The red silk La Perla intimates had been expected to go under the hammer for as much as STG4000, but bidding quickly sailed past that figure at the Christie’s sale. Minogue wore the ensemble during a photoshoot for the 2012 Study Vox Foundation charity calendar. The red bustier with lace trim and red silk and tulle body, accompanied by a signed copy of the Kylie 2012 Official Calendar, was bought by an unnamed fan. Source: www.skynews.com.au
Kylie thanked the buyer on her Twitter page –
‘Thx (thanks) to the mystery buyer!!! WOW! So thrilled and for a great cause,’ Minogue tweeted on Tuesday.
It was all for a good cause.
The Patron of The StudyVox Foundation is Kylie Minogue OBE.
In 2010 StudyVox Limited made an initial donation of £16,000 to The StudyVox Foundation to enable it to award bursaries to help with student fees. These bursaries were presented to the students at StudyVox House by Kylie Minogue OBE.
