Janet Jackson’s ensembles she wore in the “Scream” music video opposite of her brother Michael Jackson are among the items up for bid in a three-day auction.
Julien’s Auctions says her black circular bubble textured fabric long-sleeve shirt, black patent leather pants and black patent leather over-the-ankle boots sold for $125,000 Saturday. The auction called “Iconic Treasures From the Legendary Career and Life of Janet Jackson” will be held until Sunday, the singer’s 55th birthday.
Jackson partnered with Julien’s Auctions to sell more than 1,000 items from her career and personal treasures. The auction was held live in Beverly Hills, California, and shown on Julien’s website.
A portion of the proceeds will go toward Compassion International, an organization that helps children escape from poverty.
Jackson’s floor-length metallic silver coat with lambskin shearling lining, cuffs and collar, designed by Helen Storey, was bought for $50,000. Her silver string bikini and a pair of matching pants worn underneath the coat by Jackson sold for $25,600.
On Friday, Jackson’s original jacket from her 1990 Rhythm Nation Tour along with a black “1814” cap and black satin gloves with metal plaque decoration was sold for $81,250.
Other items such as Jackson’s silver-tone hoop earring suspending a key worn at the 1987 Soul Train Awards and her Rhythm Nation Tour sold for $43,750.
Kim Kardashian posted on her Instagram story that she was the winner of the two-piece ensemble that Jackson won in her 1993 video for “If.” Julien’s tweeted that the outfit went for $25,000. “For @janetjackson’s bday bc I’m such a fan I can’t believe I won this outfit,” Kardashian posted along with a photo of Jackson in the ensemble.
