Madonna's famous conical corset bra is expected to fetch $24,000 at auction today.
The Jean Paul Gaultier-designed green silk bustier with conical cups - which the "Girl Gone Wild" hitmaker wore on her 1990 Blond Ambition tour - is going under the hammer at Christie's auction house in South Kensington, south west London.
The now 54-year-old singer donned the garment - which also features peppermint bugle beads, with clustered sequins and beads at cups and hip line - during her performance of "Hanky Panky" and "Now I'm Following You" at the Olympic Stadium in Barcelona on August 1, 1990.
A black Lycra two-piece, which she wore while performing her 1990 hit "Vogue" in the stadium, is expected to go for up to $19,000 in the sale of pop culture items. The stage costume is made up of a black satin bustier costume with top-stitched conical cups complete with a black custom-made all in one suit, and Lycra shorts stitched to a mesh bodice.

With all her modeling experience she has great eye for color and style which, coupled with our extensive knowledge in lingerie design and technique, is a winning formula that we can't wait to share with our customers."

From walking runways to starring in ad campaigns, Pamela Anderson is now offering her own retail range.
The blonde icon has teamed up with lingerie manufacturing company Secrets in Lace to create a hosiery collection, which is called the Pamela Couture Collection.
"This collaboration is the perfect match, as Pamela Anderson exudes sex appeal, and her stocking line is no exception. She knows how to play up her assets; this line exemplifies just that," said a company spokesperson.
The stockings - which can be purchased at SecretsInLace.com - retail from $29 to $39.
While she still looks amazing in her stockings, Pamela recently revealed she doesn't feel the need to undergo plastic surgery in the hope of "chasing youth."

Model-turned-television star Heidi Klum is quitting Victoria’s Secret.
The supermodel has been at the lingerie giant for 13 years but has now announced she is hanging up her angel wings and won’t be strutting down the runway in the annual November show.
“All good things have to come to an end. I will always love Victoria’s Secret. It has been an absolutely amazing time.”
In 2002, Heidi became the “Head Angel” and amazed everyone last year when she posed in her underwear at the show just five weeks after giving birth to her fourth child. Other Victoria’s Secret Angels include Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.
Heidi recently admitted she has got a “sell-by date” and said there are only certain campaigns she will sign up to now because the rest are more suited to younger girls: “Models have a sell-by date. There are certain jobs I don’t do anymore, like the young, sexy, cute things for teenagers, or even 25-year-old girls. I go in a different bracket now.”
Elle Macpherson admits that she really loves underwear.
The supermodel, whose lingerie line Elle Macpherson Intimates is the biggest-selling range in the UK and her native Australia, says she has is obsessed with matching lingerie sets as she believes they are essential to looking good.
“It’s a real fetish for me, always has been. You name it, I have it. I have more than 50 sets of lingerie. Good lingerie really changes the shape of your body under clothes so your hips, waist and breasts look the best they can. It’s the underpinning of everything. And it’s just beautiful to put on a matching set of lingerie. You feel beautiful and sexy.”
The 47-year-old beauty also says she doesn’t worry about getting old because it’s something she can’t do anything about: “I can’t stop time. I just feel really appreciative that I’m so strong and healthy. I ran this morning for six miles, I do yoga and waterski and I’m nearly 50. My body’s fared me well.”
The French fashion designer whose cone bra Madonna has made iconic, Jean Paul Gaultier, is finally returning to lingerie after nearly twenty years.
This time, Gaultier is teaming up with lingerie brand La Perla to create 27 high-end pieces (check out two more images after the jump!) due in stores this November. In addition to a waist-cinching corset, he’s looking to his famous cone bra for the line’s inspiration!
“I met Jean Paul Gaultier a few months ago, and we immediately hit it off because we shared a common vision of beauty, style, taste and quality. So we agreed to try this adventure together and unite our savoir faire,” ,” said La Perla CEO Alain Prost.
Two limited-edition pieces from the line are rumored to appear in Gaultier’s couture show on July 7.
