A lingerie set once worn by Kylie Minogue has fetched $8,000 at an auction in London.
The red silk La Perla intimates were expected to go under the hammer for as much as $6,400 but bidding quickly sailed past that figure at the Christie’s sale.

Minogue wore the ensemble during a photoshoot for the 2012 Study Vox Foundation charity calendar.

The bustier and body were bought by an unnamed fan.

Cooing about the sale on Twitter.com on Tuesday, Minogue wrote, “Thx (thanks) to the mystery buyer!!! WOW! So thrilled and for a great cause.”
