'Simply Madonna' exhibition hits London

Latest update : 2009-02-20

"Simply Madonna: Materials Of The Girl", featuring some 300 outfits and knick-knacks from the singer's career, opens in London on Saturday. A chance to catch a glimpse of the wedding dress worn in the 1985 video "Like A Virgin".

AFP - A new exhibition devoted to Madonna opens in London Saturday, featuring everything from a conical bustier designed by Jean-Paul Gaultier to an old American Express card in the star's name.

"Simply Madonna: Materials Of The Girl" features some 300 outfits and knick-knacks from the US singer's career from the 1980s to the present day.

It runs at the Old Truman Brewery on Brick Lane in London's East End until March 22.

"It's the largest collection outside of Madonna's private collection," curator Ted Owen told AFP at a press preview.

The show traces Madonna's career and personal life and also features film contracts, a divorce document from her split with actor Sean Penn, plus the wedding dress worn in the "Like A Virgin" video in 1985.

It also features the American Express card from that year in the name of Madonna Ciccone, the pink dress worn in the "Material Girl" video and the wedding gown from the film "Evita."
