It’s literally a time of material gains for Madonna fans. After the irresistible Madonna Mania package offered by the Fairmont Bab Al Bahr hotel, here is the latest offering for the Madonna lover. More than 60 items from a selection of outfits, concert and movie costumes, jewelry, props, and personal items are on display and sale at BurJuman, Dubai, at the ‘Simply Madonna’ exhibition featuring authentic memorabilia of the Material Girl. The highlight, however, is the satin pink dress she wore in the Material Girl video! Yes, this iconic dress is actually up for grabs for diva’s who would love to style themselves in true Madge style. In fact, the dress is the most expensive item in the offering, with an asking price of Dhs 1.92 million approximately ($523,000).
Besides the dress, there is also a clipped credit card up once used by Madonna, a black bustier she wore in the video of Open your Heart, her iconic black gloves, and outfits from Evita movie, among other items. There are also documents like the signed cancellation of her post-marital agreement with actor Sean Penn which the Queen of Pop has signed as Madonna Penn. Personal choreography notes and diary planners of the star are also up for grabs for the artist’s die-hard fans.
The entire collection has been built and curated over the past six years by Marquee Capital (memorabilia investment firm) and spans the legendary artist’s 25-year career in the world of music and cinema. Looks like UAE is under the Madonna magic spell at the moment.
