"Who's That Girl" Premiere and 1988 Academy Awards Ceremony silver dress
Item # M0329




This vintage silver beaded dress was worn by Madonna during the 1987 world premiere of "Who's That Girl," held on August 8, 1987 in Time Square, New York City. This knee length fitted dress with spaghetti straps is entirely covered with silver lined glass bugle beads in a diamond pattern, and accented by rhinestones. The zigzag top of the bodice is reinforced with nude mesh.

Madonna appeared wearing this dress at the highly publicized Time Square premiere of the film in 1987. At the premiere, she briefly reminisced about arriving in Times Square for the first time, eight years prior, with only $35 in her pocket, dreaming of making it as an entertainer.

Daryl Hannah can be seen wearing the same dress at the 1988 Academy Awards and in various other promotional images from that event. She and Kevin Costner were presenters for the Best Costume Design award.

"Who's That Girl" follows the story of Nikki Finn (Madonna), a street-smart woman who is falsely accused of murder and spends four years in jail. Upon her release, she cons a lawyer (Griffin Dunne) into helping her catch the embezzler, resulting in a series of adventures and ultimately, romance between Finn and Trott (Dunne). The title song for the film was nominated for both a Golden Globe and Grammy award for Best Original Song for a Motion Picture. The film was also promoted through Madonna's Who's That Girl World Tour, and the motion picture soundtrack went on to sell six million copies worldwide.

The dress is in good vintage condition and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from the costume house. Presented by The Golden Closet, your premier source for iconic screen used movie wardrobe, props, and collectible music entertainment memorabilia.
