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.

Oddly enough, the item that fetched the most money was not clothing, but a picture of Daphne, shot by Mario Testino and featured in the March 2008 issue of British Vogue.

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.

Wow! AH-MAY-ZING! We're sure Issy and Lee are smiling down on Daphne!

Congrats on such a successful event!!!
