We mentioned a few weeks ago that style icon Daphnee would be putting up items from her well-known wardrobe for auction to benefit The Isabella Blow Foundation. The auction went off smashingly at Christie’s last night, with Daphnee selling off all 102 items for close to $600,000.
According to the Daily Telegraph, it had been speculated that the auction would rake in about $125,000. That seemed like a very conservative calculation considering that Daphnee’s wardrobe contains clothes from some of the biggest names in fashion including Christian Lacroiz and Alexander McQueen. In fact, just one item in the auction brought in well more than that – a photograph of Daphnee shot by acclaimed photographer Mario Testino in 2008 was sold for $166,000!
Daphnee revealed that several lots were picked up by Lady Gaga, although she hasn’t opened up about what exactly the singer bought. However, she did express how grateful and moved she was to witness Gaga’s support for the foundation.
