A Jean-Paul Gaultier cone-shaped bra that Madonna wore on her 1990 "Blonde Ambition" world tour sold for $21,150 at a pop memorabilia auction in London on Thursday. The brassiere was sold by someone who had won it on a British radio station, and was purchased by the Museum of Fashion and Textiles in Santiago, Chile. The black and fuchsia garment was only expected to fetch $4,500, said a Christie's spokeswoman. Another item in the sale, a page of handwritten lyrics by Beatle Paul McCartney, went for $29,960.
