Material Girl: Madonna's Stuff on Display and Up for Sale
An argument could be made that the last quarter century has been utterly owned by Madonna. And now, in a new London exhibit, items that still carry an afterglow from coming into contact with her Madgesty are on display in the biggest ever retrospective of her on-stage and on-screen personas.
Step right up and see the world's most pointed bustiers. Gaze in wonder at the coral pink "Material Girl" dress used to great effect in drawing comparisons between herself and screen icon Marilyn Monroe. And you won't believe your eyes when you see the rather pedestrian wedding dress Ms. Ciccone wore on-stage in her "Like a Virgin" days. Still, when combined, the 300-item show does serve to remind us that Madge -- despite Jesus, Kabbalah and the lot -- is a massive honking star and a self-made star, at that.

If a peek isn't enough, several of the items will go on the auction block in early April. Get your capital together now if you'd like to bid on the "A League of Their Own" baseball uniform, one "owned and worn" black slip or some signed legal docs from Madonna's first marriage to Sean Penn.
And, no, Madge herself has nothing to do with the auction.
