Victoria and David Beckham have always been good at generating interest in their personal brands AND the brands of others, like H&M and Armani, but looks like nobody wants Victoria's wedding crown from 1999!
Hey, that's vintage!
The crown was expected to bring in $29,000 to $40,000, but the highest bid was only for $23,000, and so the item failed to sell.
Bonham's chief executive Matthew Girling said:
Princess Diana's style icon status lives on!
The late royal's fairy tale-inspired ball gown from 1986 was auctioned off yesterday at the Kelly Taylor Auction House in London for approximately $163,000!
The dress, designed by the Princess's wedding dress designers David and Elizabeth Emanuel, features a peplum accent and ornate gold embellishments throughout, and was purchased by an unknown museum.
Diana wore the dress on several occasions, including a banquet at the German Embassy in London in honor of Queen Elizabeth II and at the premiere of the Bolshoi Ballet's Ivan the Terrible at the Royal Opera House.
She wore it a third time at the premiere of the James Bond film The Living Daylights in 1987. We love that she recycled her outfits just like Kate Middleton does now!

Helena Christensen's amazeballs body is no secret, but it's still a pleasure to get a glimpse of it whenever we can!
The supermodel was happy to indulge us by wearing a sheer lace top over a leather bandeau to Jony & Marc's (RED) Auction at Sotheby's in NYC on Saturday.
That's HOT! And it was seksi without being tacky because Helena paired it with stovepipe slacks and a conservative blazer.
That's how it's done, y'all! Take notes!

Wow, Courtney, wow!!
Miz Love definitely had all eyes on her as she joined Hayden Panettiere on the cleavage train at Jony and Marc's (RED) Auction in New York on Saturday!
And how could she not when she was dressed in a curve-hugging Herve Leger bandage gown?!
With a plunging neckline, beaded bodice, and mermaid hem, her dress was all about flaunting her best assets!
It's unfortunate that Courtney went so heavy with the glitzy baubles though.
What do U think???

Speaking of engaging, how ‘bout dem boobies??
While Hayden Panettiere’s giant engagement ring probably would’ve stolen the show in any other outfit, it was her all-enveloping cleavage and mostly bare back that had everyone talking at Jony And Marc’s (RED) Auction in New York on Saturday.
That Bec and Bridge dress is like the ultimate double-whammy!!
The black cutout number featured a massive sheer panel at the actress’ bosom, and she definitely bordered on nip-slip territory there!! If the the hind-section was cut any lower, it probably could’ve revealed some major pantie action. That is, if she was wearing panties!
She paired the sultry frock with Giuseppe Zanotti pumps and Karma el Khalil jewelry.
That Wladimir Klitschko is one lucky man!!

We can’t decide if the highest bidder of this auction is luckiest or the most generous One Direction fan ever — but then again, maybe he’s both!
As we reported last month, musical 1D hottie Harry Styles put up his sexy, unwashed, animal print Burberry shirt on Hardlyeverwornit.com to help raise money for charity. UNICEF, specifically.
The shirt started getting bids in mid-November, and a few weeks later the item sold for a whopping 3,002 British pounds! That’s equivalent to 4,835.55 U.S. dollah dollah bills!! DAYUMN!
So who was the fortunate winner? A wealthy businessman in Texas, apparently!!
Maybe he’ll take our earlier suggestion and try to clone Hazza with any remaining genetic material left on the garment. Or maybe he'll wear it every day for the rest of his life. Or maybe it's meant to be the Best Gift Ever.
So many possibilities!!
We know Victoria Beckham is a fashion queen and all, but did you know she actually wore a crown during her wedding to David Beckham in 1999!
Not just a crystal tiara like some brides wear, but a real gold and diamond crown called "East of Paris," and made by jeweler Slim Barrett especially for the occasion!
The couple's royal-themed wedding also included his and hers thrones on which the power couple sat!
There's no word on where the thrones ended up, but the crown is being auctioned off by Bonhams in London during the "Fine Jewellery" sale on December 5.
