Several fashion records were broken Wednesday night at the Daphne Guinness Collection auction in London.
A bidder from the US shelled out $133,075 for an Alexander McQueen ivory silk tulle empire line gown from the late designer's The Girl Who Lived In The Tree collection, making it the highest price paid for a McQueen creation at auction.
It alone raised $208,003, a record sale for any Testino picture.
The third record breaker of the night was a Christian Lacroix Spanish style white lace dress with a black matador jacket, which sold for $25,366.
By the end of the auction, 90% of the 102 lots available sold and total of $744,285 was raised for the Isabella Blow Foundation.

Teen Vogue is continuing the blue cover theme by featuring a blue-haired Katy Perry on the cover of their May issue.
During her interview with the mag, the Part of Me singer talked all things fashion and fame.
Here are some HIGHlights:
"I don't like to take fashion too seriously. I love it, and I am so grateful when big brands want to associate with me, but mostly I just want to take chances and have fun and truly live. And sometimes that means wearing some ridiculous, cat-inspired outfit rather than whatever happens to be in this season."
On her style influences:
On always having a quirky sense of style:
"It probably started when I was nine years old, and my father used to wake me up at seven every Saturday morning to take me to garage sales. I couldn't afford the clothes that the other girls at school were wearing, so instead I looked for things that were unique to me."
"I'm tired of being famous already! But I'm not tired of creating. Fame is, I think, just a disgusting by-product of what I do. It's quite a delicate creature— it's a wild animal of sorts. It can love you, and then it can attack you."
Be sure to check out the rest of Katy's spread in the gallery (below)!
