Madonna’s smoking hot naked pic fetches 15k poundsMay 15, 11:52 am
The sum is three times the estimate placed on the image that was taken in 1990 during the period when the singer had bleach-blonde hair and dark eye make-up, the Daily Mail reported.
It is a black and white photo and Madonna has her breasts exposed and just a white sheet covering her pudenda while she lies on a bed.
She is holding a cigarette to her pouting lips and has adopted a sexy, sultry pose. During the year it was taken the star went on her ‘Blond Ambition Tour.’
The photograph was taken by Steven Meisel and was signed and annotated ‘ed no.1’. It was snapped up by an anonymous collector.
It measured 21.5 inches by 19 inches and was originally bought by the vendor from a New York gallery.
The photograph, which was taken by the same photographer who did the work for Madonna’s 1992 book ‘Sex’, was sold by Bonhams in New York for 14,761 pounds.
“It is an absolutely stunning image and it is just a beautiful tone of grey. It is not just black and white it is grey and silvery,” Judith Eurich from the saleroom said.
“Madonna was posing for a number of photographers at the time this was taken in the 1990s when she was in her early 30s.
“She was going through a phase of having bleach blonde hair and heavy dark eye make-up that gave her a dramatic look - and of course she has a gorgeous body.
