A collection of Whitney Houston memorabilia has raised more than $80,000 (£50,000), nearly two months after the singer's tragic death.
The lots on offer included a bustier worn onstage by the superstar, who died in February (12), which fetched $18,750 (£11,719) at the auction held in Beverly Hills, California on Saturday (31Mar12).
A pair of pearl earrings worn by Houston in her hit movie The Bodyguard went for $2,812 (£1,758), while a vest she sported in the film made $3,437 (£2,148).
Other items sold in the Julien's Auctions sale included dresses and other clothing. More Houston collectibles, including 30 of her gowns, will be auctioned off in June (12).
